By Vivienne Crow with Joss Naylor.
A perfect read for fell runners, walkers and armchair adventurers alike, this is a book guaranteed to inspire.
This book celebrates the route Joss describes as one of the best he ever ran - the Lakes, Meres and Waters
(LMW) route. Weaving its way from Loweswater to Over Water via 27 of the Lake District's largest bodies of water it covers 105 ethereal miles taking in vistas of unparalleled beauty.
Joss, who first ran the route in the summer of 1983, did so in a jawdropping, record-breaking 19 hours 14 minutes. Retracing the route in the company of award-winning author, Viv Crow some 37 years later, he reflects on that magical day, sharing stories and anecdotes from not just his run but the 1980s fell running scene, his working life and growing up in the Wasdale Valley.
His tales, together with outstanding photography, are accompanied by basic guide notes for the LMW route, sticking as closely to his 1983 run as possible. These notes break the route up into ten stages (ranging from 9 to 14 miles), allowing runners and walkers to follow in the footsteps of the King of the Fells, albeit on a more relaxed schedule.
