    First Spanish BGR attemp?

    Hi everyone!

    One year dreaming of an attemp and everything ready for this week. Three fellows and me (first Spanish BGR attemp as far I know before Kilian attemp unchains madness about BGR in our country). We can choose the best of the days, between 7th and 9th April, just depending upon weather. If weather is ok we will try our luck 7th April, Clockwise with an 1900 or 2000 start.

    It is our first time in the Lakes. No first hand knowledge of the terrain. So, we do not fancy with a superb performance. It will be ok if anyone out of our team manage to arrive in time back to Keswick

    Best regards
    Julian

    Thanks you very much!
    thatīs right, we`ll try to enjoy whatever the result. We trained so hard and came with a huge amount of miles in our legs. But we know that our absolutely ignorance of what we are going to find out there is a serious drawback.

    Hi Julian,

    I'm the one your registration emails come to - from your names I wasn't sure if you were Spanish or Portuguese As far as I know there have been no Spanish attempts on the Bob Graham. There have been very few attempts from outside Britain or Ireland so there's not many names to check.

    Good luck
    Bob
