Slow Paddy Buckley – 5th-8th July ’18

The Paddy Buckley Round, climbing 47 peaks across Eryri over 61 miles, is known for being somewhat gnarlier than its more famous Lake District cousin, the Bob Graham Round.

The Paddy Buckley Round proper is to be completed in under 24hours, a great feat of running. This year, members of MDC are planning to do the round, but taking it a bit easier. It’ll be over three days, running in the daytime in small groups – averaging about 20miles + 3km of climb per day.

 

The plan is to head up on Thurs eve 5th July, run it over three days, and finish on Sunday eve 8th July.

Friday – Capel Curig -> Nantmor

Saturday – Nantmor -> Llanberis

Sunday – Llanberis -> Capel Curig
