A new edition of this fabulous hardbacked book.
When recently-retired graphic designer from Scunthorpe Barry Holmes celebrated his 60th birthday, he thought he was over the hill.
But the father of three set out to prove to the rest of the world - and perhaps to himself - that he was wrong by setting himself a challenge.
He bought a pair of running shoes and challenged himself to bag all of the Lakeland fells.
His mission sometimes painful, often wet, occasionally meandering, but always entertaining takes him to all 214 Wainwright summits as he battles bracken, blizzards and blisters; injuries, white-outs, and weary limbs to discover the best and worst of the Lake District.
Part graphical love-letter to the Lake District and part journal of a runner finding his stride, Over the Hill at 60 Something? is a gorgeous, 144-page hardback that will absorb and inspire anyone who has set their eyes on the high places of Cumbria and then set off to conquer them.
330 x 235 mm
An illustrated log of running the Lakeland summits as listed in the Wainwright Pictorial Guides. By Barry Holmes.
