Bob Graham Seminar | Delivered Online through Zoom | All about the Bob Graham Round | 2h Seminar | Thursday 29th April at 18:00

Let Charlie share his vast experience and knowledge with you about the Bob Graham Round.

Charlie is a font of knowledge when it comes to the BGR. Having completed it semi solo in 2006 with his dog Scratch, he didn't think too much more about it until Damian Hall asked him in 2015 to navigate him the whole way, it was sort of a bet. Since doing his second BGR with Damian in 2016, Charlie has completed the Charlie Ramsay and Paddy Buckley Rounds as well.

Charlie has also supported many friends and acquaintances on successful and unsuccessful attempts, picking up much knowledge on why rounds can and do fail and what makes them successful. On top of this all, Charlie has successfully guided alongside his free-lance team, 13 clients in their Bob Graham Round.

What to expect: 

  • A professionally designed and delivered online seminar
  • Delivered clearly and concisely with time to take notes
  • Slides and screens to be able to follow
  • A wealth of knowledge and information
  • Ways and methods of how to complete a successful sub-24 hour round
  • A short Q&A at the end of the seminar

Who is it for? 

Any aspiring Bob Graham runner. Whether you are dreaming of a round in the future, getting yourself ready for an attempt in 2021, have had an unsuccessful attempt or just want to know more about the round.

On the seminar, Charlie will impart first hand information and anecdotal stories to help you understand the fitness, training and mental agility and tenacity needed to complete a round successfully.

If you are looking to make your attempt as successful as possible, then a 2 hour session with Charlie will go along long way!
