Fellsman fails to fell 'em!

We often concentrate on the sharp-end of fell, trail and ultra running here at MST. But events such as this weekend’s Fellsman only go to prove just how much goes into these events for the ‘mid packers’ point of view too…

The exciting race was won by Adam Perry, less than a minute up on Ian Phillips. The Grough has a brief race report here. However, for me some of the most inspirational writing and stories have come via reading some of the numerous blogs out there, which detail the effort and adversities overcome.

Stolly at the Fellsman

Stolly, Guy Mawson and Simon Franklin are just three such blogs which offer some great insight into this 61-mile beast, and indeed may well inspire others to take on the challenge of this iconic event…

    Thanks MST, if my blog inspires one person to get off the sofa and come and do Fellsman it’ll all be worth it!
    Glad you enjoyed the blog…!
