Summary

An inspiring insight into one of the oldest extreme sports, this is the definitive story of fell-running. This is a complete portrait of one of the few sports to have remained utterly true to its roots. Richard Askwith’s journey takes him into a world of forbidding rockscapes, horizontal rain, fear, exhaustion and stunning natural beauty, as well as his own attempt at one of the toughest challenges imaginable: the Bob Graham Round, the sport’s traditional test of 42 Lake District peaks in 24 hours. 

Gripping, funny and moving, this is a story that any aspiring runner, endurance athlete or mountain-lover will understand well: of extremity, heroism and the experience of a lifetime.

Fantastic

An excellent reading of the classic Feet in the Clouds. If you have any interest in fell running books then you should definitely check this out. Funny at times, filled with interesting stories of the history of fell running in the lakes and of a few of the major characters, this is outstanding. Finishes with a chapter with the author talking about the impact of the book that first was published in 2004. Richard, please release more on Audible!!!
