    The Frog Graham

    Anybody on here done this? Or thought about having a go? Certainly looks like a great challenge for runner who can swim a bit.

    The people who've done the FG seem to be swimmers who can run. I think it'd be a really good challenge, doable but bloody tough (just like the BG then), for non-swimming mortals. Anyway where did I put my Speedos?

    Quite fancy the idea of an anti-clockwise Round. You could do Derwent before any boats were about and get the longest swim out of the way first.

    I can swim a bit :-D

    Quite fancy it actually and I have been thinking about it as a target for next year. I'd like to do a bit more research though, I'm quite happy swimming across all four of those lakes but I would want a wetsuit and as the rules say you're expected to be self-supported and CARRY the wetsuit between lakes, well, that puts a bit of a different complexion on things.

    This might be the sort of thing that Moorlander would like to try .....
