This now legendary run and the associated Billy Bland Challenge is close to the heart of KAC starting and finishing in Keswick as it does. Many of our runners regularly support those attempting the BG round and many have been involved personally.
We are currently compiling historical data about the club’s achievements over the years and would welcome contributions to this page from members.
