Maybe a bit more research needed on the reference to the Bob Graham round
" If you really want to challenge yourself before the race, try the Bob Graham Round in Scotland - runners have to climb 24 peaks above 4000 feet in 24 hours."
Try this site for the correct information (for a start, it's in the Lake District!)

I'm afraid that is pretty symptomatic of today's "Runners' World" that such a disgracefully innacurate statement about the Bob Graham Round should be made.
Hang your heads in shame RW. Really.
Next up: "Try the London Marathon : a 10k race in France"
Of course..... you could have meant "Ramsay's Round" : 24 peaks in 24 hrs in Scotland. Start and finish at Glen Nevis youth hostel.
I would suggest that the OMM is used as preparation for the Bob Graham / Ramsay's - rather than the other way around.
Anyway.... you can still hang your heads in shame.
Sorry guys - this was a clanger of an error! I've now edited the OMM entry to correct it to Ramsay's Round...
