Fell running is an increasingly popular sport, but have you ever wondered how it all began?
It is a while since any reviews of ‘It’s a hill, get over it’ have appeared, but notice of one arrived in my inbox last week, under the title ‘Fell running is an increasingly popular sport, but have you ever wondered how it all began?’ It is on the blog of fell running guide Dave Taylor, and nicely summarises the book as an ‘excellent book ….[it] gives a detailed history of the sport; from the early shepherds’ meetings in the 1800′s through to the rise of the Brownlee brothers and the possibility of Kilian Jornet tackling the Bob Graham Round!‘
As Dave points out at the end of the review it is available from Amazon and all good bookshops including Outside, Hathersage. The hardback is still available as well as the paperback, which came out in September. Anyone wanting a signed copy of either is welcome to contact me.
Do you love running but want to take it a stage further? This is the message at the top of Dave’s website. If you do, why not take a look at his site [http://www.fellrunningguide.co.uk/]. He offers guided runs, nav training, and race reccies.
