C&C Billy Bland Challenge relay [Gallery Index]

Sunday 24th May 2015

On 24 May 2015, an almost exclusively C&C team ran the Billy Bland Challenge relay which “is based on the five legs of the 24 Hour Bob Graham round, starting and finishing at the Moot Hall in Keswick (…) and covers about 66 miles, 28,000 feet of climbing and 42 peaks.” (http://www.billyblandchallenge.org.uk/). This gallery shows a few pictures of the event.
