Askwith gives us history of the legendary runs, names that become people with the biographical chapters, and, the icing on the cake--he takes us with him on several runs. I suffered his DNF just as I have suffered my own, his introspection echoed the many others I have heard. It sounds trite, but he transposes the reader from the comfort of the warm chair to the cold challenge of a waiting hillside.
Well done, very well done.
The trigger for me to buy the book came from completing the 3peaks cyclocross race in Yorkshire Dales - couldn't help noticing that many of the strongest guys there came from a fell-running background. Next trip to England I may skip the bike and just bring my running shoes;)

Pleasurable and easy read. A rare and unique perspective of fell running in all its glory. Truly brings home how under appreciated they are as incredible athletesPublished on November 7, 2012 by Jon Daulton
