A GUIDE to 40 of the best trail, fell and skyrunning routes in the Lake District has just been published by Cicerone Press.
Highlights include Helvellyn skyline and Scafell Pike direct, the Langdale Horseshoe and Borrowdale. The guide also has information on the history of fell running, races and adapting for the fells.
Kingsley Jones the author of Trail and Fell Running in the Lake District, studied geography and glaciology at university. He has climbed the north faces of the Eiger, Matterhorn and Grandes Jorasses in the Alps, and led expeditions to mountains all over the world. Through mountaineering he developed a passion for a minimalist approach in the mountains, and soon discovered trail running as an ultimate form of fast and light travel. He runs a mountain running and guiding company (www.icicle.co.uk), and so divides his time between the Alps and the Lake Distict.
