These pictures were taken on Leg 3 of the Bob Graham Round on 17th May 2014, where Rochdale Harriers provided support for Adam Wilson.  Adam is the son of John Wilson who ran with Rochdale for many years.  
This leg took 6 hours 14 minutes and included 6,500 ft of climb, with 16 summits, one of which is England's highest mountain.

Dennis Lucas navigated superbly, and Mark Walker and John Mayall carried the water, food and safety equipment and certified Adam's reaching of the summits.  Adam completed the 72 mile / 27,000ft ascent, 42 summit run well under the 24 hour target time, and he even added an unplanned 43rd summit to match his age on the day.


CONGRATULATIONS TO ADAM FOR THIS FANTASTIC ACHIEVEMENT!
