The Birthplace of British Mountain Running (Video)

Get access to everything we publish when you sign up for Outside+.

Great Britain has one of the world’s strongest—and oldest—traditions of mountain running, or fell running, as the sport is called in that country. In this video from Salomon TV, Rickey Gates, a contributing editor with Trail Runner, heads to the epicenter of English fell running, the Lake District. There, he runs with some of Great Britain’s top runners and talks to legends of the fells like Joss Naylor, Billy Bland and Kenny Stuart.

To read more about Gates’s U.K. trip and his fell-running adventures, look for his feature “Twelve Minutes to Spare” in our special issue DIRT: The Trail-Running Life, available now on newsstands or with your subscription.
