Fell running is one of the last bastions of sporting purity, and it continues to maintain its traditions in a corporate world where market forces dominate all aspects of life.

Further Information:

This book celebrates the distinctive Welsh version of that sport where spectacular races pit runner against mountain, not for profit or social media boasting, but for the pleasure derived from intense physical effort in wonderful landscapes.

From the low but wild Preseli mountains in the south west, legendary source of Stonehenges bluestones, to the green Clwydian hills of the north east, and from the rolling grandeur of the Brecon Beacons to the jagged peaks of Snowdonia every corner of the Welsh nation has its own distinctive version of the mountain landscape.

Mixing anecdote and history, the book takes a seasonal approach to the long-established races that represent the essence of this unique sport, woven around the narrative of the racing year and the geography of the Welsh landscape.
