How Hard Are You ?

Im reading a book about fell-running in England at the moment, a sport that goes back a few centuries and puts us hobby-runners to shame...... the most famous race in the Bob Graham, a circuit of 42 fells in the English Lake District, including the 3,000-foot (910 m) peaks of Skiddaw, Helvellyn, Scafell and Scafell Pike........yes you read that more whingeing about a 200m ascent on a road run....the aim of the race is not to win, but just to make it....

I recommend this book highly, the author's a fell runner himself and goes to great lengths to document the incredible athletic ability of these heroic runners who have quietly and humbly dedicated themselves to this incredibly challenging sport.......

Here's uphill

Here what the crazy downhill looks like
