Just over a month ago, Doug Zinis headed up into the Lake District peaks and took on a double Bob Graham Round. The Bob Graham is a 66 miles (106 km) route with 26,900 feet (8,200 m) of ascent which Doug would complete before turning around and returning on the same route to his start/finish point in Keswick.
Doug managed this feat in 45hrs and 3 minutes, a new fastest known time for the challenge. In this episode, we chat to Doug about taking up running at 28, his recent journey into ultra-running, and the planning and support that goes into this kind of challenge.
We also have a windswept update from Kris King up in Knoydart preparing for the Highland Ultra.
