A duathlon of sorts, John Kelly is having another go at his “grand round” - the big three British fell running rounds and cycling between them. He completed a 22 hour Paddy Buckley this morning and is now on the 180 mile bike leg to Keswick.
That’s just full mental isn’t it!
Presumably the John Kelly that won the winter Spine Race and finished the Barkley Marathons a year or two back? Is he UK based then?
On the A41 approaching Liverpool around rush hour. Kudos for that alone.
He was on @Rooster 's podcast just before his original attempt:
Yes, been living in Somerset for a year and a bit. Also broke the long standing Pennine Way record a month or so ago, only to have it broken again a week later.
Not that far from us then; I wonder if he’s run past our house whilst doing the Cotswold Way at some point.
Update: Bob Graham completed in 23:45 early this morning in pretty poor weather, few hours kip and now he’s just entered Scotland on his ride up to Fort William
