This book is aimed at parkrunners and club runners who run mainly on the roads but who would also like to run in the hills; roadrunners who want to head onto the fells but who are wary about taking the first step, maybe even a little intimidated by fell-running mountain goats who might seem almost like another species.
The great thing about the Lakeland fells, is their accessibility. Most are easy to get to and to get up and down and many are clearly visible from the roadside. There are few long walk-ins and the 70 runs chosen in this guide avoid exposed terrain and scrambles.
Everyone can be a fell runner. This book is for mortals who want to feel the freedom and wildness of the Lakeland fells.

Since his retirement from teaching and school administration John has devoted his time to researching running routes in the Cumbrian Mountains. He is passionate about the benefits of running on physical and mental health, especially running in wide-open spaces over beautiful and varied terrain. He runs every day, a streak reaching back to 1994, often over the fells close to his door, and hopes to open up the magic of running over mountains to a wider section of the running community. John often runs with a camera, taking photos to sustain his enthusiasm for the natural world.
