    Most rounds in a year

    Is there a record for the most BGRs done in a year?

    Steve Ashworth's just failed on his 3rd of 2012 but apparently is planning another go this month!

    Well there's the select group who have done back to back BGRs but I don't know of any beyond those or who have done two in a year. The big thing would be the recovery - recovering from the first and possibly second round wouldn't take too long but you'd start to obey the law of diminishing returns not long after that unless you were someone like Killian Jornet.

    Without me you'd be one place nearer the back

    Steve managed his first two within a fortnight, but apparently abandoned his latest with a tweaked hamstring. Can't be too serious though if he's considering another go within a week or two

    Where did he decide to stop?

    We were recce'ing and looking out for him on Leg 2 (his Leg 4 going A/C), but thought he must've shot through before we got going.

    Good luck for next time Steve.

    Dunno, just going by the Epicentre FB page "Round three goes to Bob Graham, Steve had to stop with a tweaked hamstring, hopefully it will recover enough for another go in March."
