A Guide for Walkers & Hill Runners The book, aimed at walkers and fell runners, includes detailed information on the challenging Lakeland Three Thousands; the Old County Tops; the Roman Road between Windermere and Penrith; the Eight Great Horseshoes; and Penrith to the Sea routes. Roy Clayton guides walkers through the routes, while experienced fell runner, Ronald Turnbull, gives the necessary advice for runners, and for walkers who wish to step up the pace in the tradition of the greats like Joss Naylor, Eric Beard and Colin Donnelly. Since the Lakeland Mountain Challenges book was discontinued at the end of 2006, the publisher Grey Stone books has been inundated with phone calls from both booksellers and customers, who wanted to know when it was going to be available again.
This edition has a new cover and brings up-to-date information. If you want some challenging Lakeland walks, backpacks or runs, or you want to know how to train to do a fast time, this book is the ONLY choice. Ronald Turnbull is an all-weather walker and writer, with a special interest in multi-day walks, challenge walks and scrambling. He has completed nineteen different coast-to-coast crossings of Britain, and slept in a bivvy-bag on over fifty summits. In 1994 he won the Fell Running Association's Long-distance Trophy for a ten-day run over all the hills of Southern Scotland.
