For those who still don't know, The Abraham's Tea Round is 30 miles with 12,000 ft of ascent and takes in all the tops you can see from the Cafe window.... starting at the doors of George Fisher. You can find out more and see our leader board here

First of all, anyone who completes our Tea Round during October, November and December will get a free finishers pack which includes a special map and a pair of phD Smartwool socks. The map was drawn by talented local artist Chris Brewer. 

If that wasn't enough, during the month of October, you also have a chance to win a Smartwool baselayer by tagging in @smartwool_europe for Instagram and @smartwooleurope on Facebook #Socktober19 in all our your Tea Round Posts!
