Rickey Gates and Anna Frost travel to the Japan to explore the mountains

Japan’s connection with the natural world has shaped its people’s lives and culture for thousands of years. In ancient times they looked on their mountains as the dwelling places of the gods. This still continues through the Japanese practice of Shugendo which is centred around the examination of our relationship with the natural world. Rickey Gates and Anna Frost travel to the Japanese Alps to explore this shared bond with the mountains.

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.
