Robb Jebb Continues Three Peaks Race Domination
Rob Jebb winning the 2006 Three Peaks Cyclocross Race. by Andy Rushford
Robb Jebb, seven-time winner of the Three Peaks Cyclocross race, can’t get enough of the hills of UK’s Yorshire Dales National Park. Jebb won the Three Peaks running version of the race this past Saturday, completing the 55th running of the hilly 24-mile race in a time of 2 hours, 54 minutes and 53 seconds. This is actually Jebb’s fourth win in the foot race, having won it three years in a row from 2005-07.
Winning both the prestigious cyclocross and running endurance races is an impressive feat for Jebb, an amateur athlete obsessed with the Ingleborough, Whernside and Penyghent mountains. In our popular Three Peaks article in Issue 4, author Dave Haygarth describes Jebb as having a “committed and thorough approach to the event hat makes him a worthy and memorable champion.” With 11 victories between the two different events, it’s clear that his approach is working.
