Trail Running (UK) - - Kit Bag -

RUN­NER, LIZZY HAWKER, £9.99

To read that Lizzy is ner­vous be­fore tack­ling the UTMB or Ever­est is strangely com­fort­ing given her rep­u­ta­tion as an ul­trarun­ning le­gend. She’s very much a real per­son, with the same self-doubt and fears that ac­com­pany any big chal­lenge. Lizzie takes us on a real tour of dis­cov­ery up and over high peaks and, more im­por­tantly, leaves us with the thought that maybe, just maybe, any­thing is pos­si­ble if you put your mind to it.

OVER THE HILL AT 60 SOME­THING, BARRY HOLMES, £14.90

Now this is an in­ter­est­ing book, with what we can only de­scribe as some amaz­ing il­lus­tra­tions. Barry has done this as a re­tire­ment project and clearly has pro­duced a su­perb cof­fee ta­ble book. If you want a feel for the Lakes and need a bit of route in­spi­ra­tion, then this is a nice ad­di­tion to your li­brary. Who knows, it might even get you think­ing about sim­i­lar projects you could do your­self.
