    That would be a big ask, think I heard somewhere that for an average person the Paddy is an hour longer than a Bob Graham. Very well done Nicky

    Very Well done Nicky. I think the Paddy is the toughest of the lot. To go round twice at any speed is beyond super human.

    Someone tweeted their congratulations on completing a double Paddy Buckley and had an almost instantaneous response that it was not a double PB as the second leg was not under 24 hours. Sums up Twitter nicely methinks!
    Going downhill fast

    Well, they are obviously not very well initiated as the PBR doesn't stipulate a sub 4 hour completion. Thee are several people on Paddys register who have completed in over 24 hours.

    Here, here; you beat me to it.
    Paddy never did stipulate a time, just that the round should be completed as "one journey". PBR member #1 took around 27 hours.
    BUT you do need to be under 24 hours if your PBR is to get you into the "Big 3 Club".

    I was a bit of an oddball until I was abducted by aliens; but I'm perfectly OK now!

    Including me and Sue. We walked the route over two days with a wild camp below Yr Aran. Paddy checked with Wendy and they were happy that it counted as a 'Continuous journey'.

    That is interesting Ian. I hadn't thought of that. So only Paddy's with a sub 24 are on all 3 completers list. I would think there are some all 3 completers therefore who have come up an hour or two short and therefore failed to make the cut!! That leaves a dilemma as to whether they then go and try it again., when you've already given everything you have.
