‘The Round: in Bob Graham’s footsteps’ – early reviews

TGObookofyearSo, is ‘The Round: in Bob Graham’s footsteps’ worth its place on the TGO shortlist list for Outdoor Book Of the Year? [voting here, till 15 Nov]

Who am I to say. But this is what some others have said about the book:

‘Steve Chilton writes with authority, documenting the development of the Round from a more-or-less idle challenge to its present status. There are extensive profiles of many of the challenge’s most significant individuals: innovators, record setters, recorders and supporters.’
The Westmorland Gazette

‘We found this book to be an informative and interesting read, and feel it will become a valuable historical addition to the small library of previously published books on fell running and endurance.’
Kenny and Pauline Stuart

‘One of the best reads ever of this exclusive club… very special.’
Joss Naylor, legend

‘Unfailingly inspiring.’
Claire Maxted, Trail Running Magazine

‘A great read, a real insight into the history of the BG, the records and the people behind them.’
Richard Davies, review on Amazon

There is something legendary about the BGR. Steve Chilton has interviewed the men, and the women, people of rare determination and doggedness, as well as extraordinary fitness, who have completed the Round.’
Cumberland News
