Winter Hill Runners Antonio Codina and David Colgan recently took up the gauntlet of Abraham’s Tea Round.

The Tea Round, as it is affectionately known, is an epic 30-mile challenge based in the Lake District that anyone can take part in.

The route starts and finishes at the doors of George Fisher, a popular outdoor clothing and equipment brand. In between, runners tackle 12,000-plus feet of ascent, which can be either walked or run, and which takes in some of the Lake District’s most iconic peaks, including the Catbells and Causey Peak.

Alongside conquering an inspiring challenge in an incredible corner of the UK, those who complete the route receive a prestigious badge of honour, as well as a Montane t-shirt.

From the start, competitors have a short run out to Portinscale Village before heading up and over Catbells, then down into little town in the Newlands Valley.

They then head past Newlands Church and up the grassy banks of Robinson before running around the shores of Buttermere.

Then they are confronted with a steep climb up High Stile and a descent back to Buttermere via Red Pike and past Bleaberry Tarn.

There is then a long slog out of Buttermere up Whiteless Pike and from there runners head over to Crag Hill, traverse along and then up Grisdale Pike, via Hobcarton Crag.

They then head back on theirselves and off to Eel Crag, across to Sail and Scar Crags and onto Causey Pike before descending on to Rowling End.

Then it is a drop down into Stoneycroft Ghyll before taking on the last fell of the day, Barrow and heading back to Keswick to touch the doors of George Fisher.

The pair completed this beast of a challenge in a brilliant 9hrs 33mins.
