The challenge of linking together all the mountains in Lakes over 2500 feet dates back to the 1960's.  Over the years different criteria have been used for selecting the 2500 foot mountains.  An outline history of the Lakes 2500's is given on a dedicated gofar page- see link below.

In 2020 following growing interest in the challenge, the Bob Graham Club adopted Steve Parr's route of 61 peaks. It includes the 57 peaks documented by Wainwright as being higher than 2,500 feet plus Broad Crag, Ill Crag, Shelter Crags and Helvellyn Lower Man. This became the benchmark for formally registering completions and record breaking runs of the 2,500ft peaks.  The round was named in honour of Steve as he completed the first round in 1984, starting and finishing at the Keswick Moot Hall. He covered some 116 miles and 42550' of ascent in a time of 42 hours 56 minutes, a record that stood for 36 years.  An outstanding mountaineer, he tragically disappeared in the Himalayas in 1990 - see links below for tributes and achievements.


Steve Parr's 61 peaks are listed in his 'Beyond the Bob Graham Round' article - see link below.  The Bob Graham Club guidelines for the route are as follows:

  1. You have to start and finish at the Keswick Moot Hall and complete a round of  61 peaks of 2500'

  2. Choose you own direction of travel, clockwise or anti-clockwise 

  3. Visit the peaks in any order so that the route can be further optimised

  4. 48 hours is the target time but any continuous round will be recorded


Steve Parr's schedule is included with his 'Beyond the Bob Graham Round' article - see below.
