GetOutside Champion: James Forrest
James is on a crazy mission to make his life more adventurous, to explore the great outdoors, and to climb as many mountains as possible.
Fell running - racing across tracks and footpaths is a great way to GetOutside and to get fit. This infographic by Craig Manor Hotel in the Lake District helps you get started.
The Lake District is the ideal place for Fell running, with a multitude of routes and an active fell running community. There are more gentle routes for those just starting out and more challenging runs, including the Fairfield Horseshoe, which draws some of the best fell runners in the UK for an annual run in May.
The guide below is aimed at those new to fell running giving you all the information you need to get started, including advice on gear, trails and tips on tackling your first route. Lace up your boots and get ready to run!
