A fellrunner is aiming to compete three of the biggest fellrunner's challenges for charity.

Lochaber-based Keri Page will take on the Bob Graham Round, the Paddy Buckley Round and the Ramsay Round in the space of 13 days in May, raising funds for Water Aid and the John Muir Trust.

However, with 187 miles, 113 summits and 83,000 ft of ascent ahead she will be putting on walking boots rather than running shoes, with Grough quoting her as saying: "I will be walking all the rounds myself whatever the weather from May 16th to 18th 16 to 28th May."

She added: "It averages out at 17 miles, ten mountains and 2,300 m a day for 11 days - 13 including travel."

The Bob Graham Round includes many of the highest peaks in the Lake District, the Paddy Buckley Round is in Snowdonia and the Ramsay Round covers Ben Nevis, as well as peaks in the Mamores and Grey Corries ranges.

Another charity walker going on a big trek in May is David Collinson from Kendal, who will walk around 54 lakes and tarns in the Lake District over a 15-day period, the Westmorland Gazette reported recently.
