Phil Hodge & Declan Faulkner plan on Saturday evening at 6pm to start out on the Bob Graham Round.
Phil sustained an injury during a Hill & Dale race in May 2017, that meant he had to opt out of Stephen Wallace’s, Dominic McInerney’s and Mark King’s successful round in 2017.
By Sunday at 6pm he hopes to put that right.
The Bob Graham Round is a 66 mile, 42 peak, 27000ft of climbing circuit of the English Lake District, which must be undertaken in less than 24hrs to be successful.
Mark, Stevie and Dominic will support Declan & Phil in there attempt, along with the extensive support crew off:-
Steve Wathall (local)
Justin Bramell (local)
Charmain Heaton (local and key supporter of Nicky Spinks)
Paul Tierney (fresh of his Wainwright record!)
