First book talk details (and two more reviews)
Full details [PDF] of the talk I am giving at Wilfs Cafe on 20 March are now available from the website. There are other talks that might interest too [series details]. This is part of the blurb: “…stories will range from naked runners, via the World’s Greatest Liar contest, through to the establishment of the Bob Graham Round and other long fell challenges and some subsequent record breakers. It will be illustrated by a series of photos of events and athletes, many of which have emerged in the course of his research“.
REVIEWS: also this week two more good reviews were sent to me.
Scotland Outdoors included a nice, but short, review which commented: “…….. this exhaustive homage to fell running promises much, and delivers“.
Scottish Memories included the book in it’s reviews in the December 2013 issue. It noted “…. the story of how the sport’s foremost athletes developed is a fascinating one, with many early fell runners juggling full time work with pursuing the sport at evenings and weekends. Steve also takes a look at how some of fell running’s classic challenges such as the Cuillin Ridge Traverse came into being, as he explores what draws runners to a particular location.”
