Adam Perry is preparing for his fourth attempt at one of the longest-standing ultra running challenges in England - The Lake District 24 hour record. Set by Mark Hartell in 1997, the 20-year-old Lake District record involves traversing 77 peaks or more within a 24 hour time limit. Roughly following the Bob Graham Round, the route will take Adam across peaks which are required to be over 2000 ft high, at least 0.25 miles apart and involve at least 250 ft of descent.
Mount Cook has sponsored Adam, who will attempt to break the long standing record on Saturday 13th May! Click on the video below to hear Mount Cook's joint founder and director, Colin Adams, on Radio Derby this morning as he talks about Adam's ultra running challenge:
