One of the most exhilarating aspects of trail running is letting go and charging down a trail

One of the most exhilarating aspects of trail running is letting go and charging down a trail. It may sound crazy but running down is often harder and more challenging than running up. As with most things in life, practice makes perfect. British Fell Runners, Ricky Lightfoot and Tom Owens head to Iceland in search of the perfect downhill.

Of Fells and Hills

The history, culture and legends of the ancient practise of Fell Running.

The term “fell” is an often used Northern England expression for hill or mountain. It is presumed that Shepherds were probably the first ever fell runners with the earliest documented accounts of running in the fells dating back to the 11th Century. By the 19th century organised fell runs began taking place in Cumbria in the United Kingdom. Locals raced each other up and down hills and a sport was born. In “Of Fells and Hills” we travel with American Writer, Photographer and Trail Runner, Rickey Gates, to the UK to explore and discover the history, culture and legends of the ancient practise of Fell Running.
