The Borrowdale Fell Race was subject to numerous great images this weekend – some of the roughest and toughest Lake District fells shown off at their dramatic best with the contrasting weather conditions…

Some of the best as ever at SportSunday, Andy ‘Wharfeego’ Holden never disappoints with some brilliantly clear efforts, Ian Charters blogs and clicks here and Keswick Lake District’s photos are here.

Fell Running Pictures were out and about as usual this weekend, and Al Tye and Pete MacMillen’s emotive shots form classic short-distance Welsh race Y Garn are now online here – great work as ever!

Every weekend in the UK thousands of people get out there on the hills and mountains for non-racing, training, fun and recce purposes. Luckily for us they often take a digi camera these days too, and one such runner is Sarah Ridgway.

Not only does Sarah (along with hubby Iain) compete at the highest level, but she also runs the rather successful Run Snowdonia, and whilst out on her mountain endeavours keeps us up to date via her blog.
