COWLING woman Emma Hopkinson successfully completed The Bob Graham Round, a 66-mile, 27,000 feet circuit of 42 of the highest peaks in the Lake District within 24 hours.

After completing the test of endurance in 21 hours and 45 minutes the weekend before Kilnsey Show, Hopkinson, who started running at the age of 12, then ran in the Kilnsey Crag Race three days later.

It was another special moment for the former England junior champion, who won the ladies race in a time of 10 minutes 59 seconds.

Hopkinson finished just a whisker ahead of Threshfield’s Kirsty Hall (11.01), who was denied on the final sprint to the line.
