    BGR 2016 report

    This is the summary of the 2016 attempts and successes.

    There were 166 registrations (28 ladies) with 79 successful rounds (13 ladies).
    There were 76 successful clockwise rounds (13 ladies) and 3 successful anticlockwise rounds (0 ladies).
    Fastest times were 14:30 for the men and 18:54 for the ladies.
    The average age of successful contenders was 37yrs 11months.
    The age of successful contenders ranged from 20 to 55.


    There was a resurgence in interest in winter rounds in 2016 with seven recorded successes, five of these were first rounds with that of Jasmin Paris being the fastest female winter round to date.
    The ladies dominated the news during summer with Jasmin also recording the fastest female time which at the time was the fifth fastest ever time and Nicky Spinks becoming the first lady to complete a double Round also in the fastest time for that extraordinary feet. Rob Jebb posted the fastest every qualifying round with 14:30, only Billy Bland's record being better.

    I thought Jasmin's time was around 15 hours?

    The report is only about qualifying rounds, Jasmin's record was her second round (her qualifying round was her winter round - she holds both summer and winter female records). In the same way Billy Bland's record round wasn't his first though his first, qualifying, round also happened to be the fastest at that time.

    Andrew, we have a Bowland lad taking a stab on the 3rd June. As it clashes with Duddon, he's a bit short on support if you and Stef fancy a trot out?
