I love the Broxap/Belton twist. It seems fair to gain a Munro, but harsh to lose one.

As far as I know, there is no formal women’s record, although that would presumably have belonged to whoever held the record for Ramsay’s Round, so Diamantides, Spinks and Paris (23 Munros).

The progression of the Munros 24-hour record: where imagination meets endurance. Tranter (18) - Lochaber, 1964 Ramsay (23) - Lochaber, 1978 Stone (25) - Lochaber, 1987 Broxap (29) - Cluanie/Affric, 1988 Mann (30) - Cairngorms NP, 2017 Chepelin (32) - Cairngorms NP, 2020

Tough one. Time-wise, no problem, but the descent to Lairig Ghru and then up to Braeriach was punishing.

A mountain running classic in big hills: the Cairngorm 4000s.

Style is everything. Well done on the Big 6 - one of Alec Keith’s old records, so you are following in the boot marks of a legend.

I’m less familiar with this side of the Pentlands. My strategy is to take a direct line to the hill. If I’m lucky I might find a track.

Because I like spreadsheets (!) I've crunched some numbers comparing common ramsay/tranters sections - tranters vs Ascroft/ ramsay, and the 9 hour tranters comes out as 13.20 to 13.30 ramsay pace. Not got splits to hand.

What would Tranter himself make of this? His original round in 1964 took 23 hours (although that did include a two-hour nap on Aonach Mor).

Outstanding achievement on what is arguably Britain’s most natural and aesthetically-pleasing round.

The good old days - when there was only one set of pylons.

I can only speak for myself, but I ran consistently during lockdown, albeit always locally. With the distraction of racing removed, runners have focused on endurance and avoided injury. These people setting records also have many years’ experience of ultra and hill running.

It is an extraordinary gesture that will have got many of us reflecting. I was steadied on Carn Mor Dearg during my Ramsay’s Round. Unfair assistance?
