Oops, don't think that link works outside of Facebook...

This from RaceKit's Facebook page:

Dave Sleath's 'oldest ever' Bob Graham Round... (4 photos)
A few pics shot while supporting White Peak's Dave Sleath en route to becoming - at age 68 - the oldest-ever completer of the Bob Graham Round. Leaving Keswick at 7am on Saturday 5th, he completed the 42-peak, 72-mile, 29,000ft of ascent Lake District circuit in 23 hours, 59 minutes. And for those who don't know about the BGR, the time limit is.... 24 hours :-)

you'd need to follow 'RaceKit' on Facebook to view the pics as I can't find any info elsewhere...

There are some very good Fell Runners out there over the age of 60, who regularly beat the vast majority of younger competitors.
Going off the middle smaller photo on Scafell, it looks like he did a Graham Bob (anti clockwise) and that means he traversed the entire skyline in that photo.

It just shows that age is no barrier when it comes to ultra distance.
