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…!

    However, whatever ready made bait you favour, it is a fact
    that you can create even more potent baits using a totally new level of knowledge
    and the reasons for you being able to defeat any ready made
    bait are endless. Given a choice, our primates will eat nothing but bananas.
    So, you will be guided accordingly and will learn better and faster.

    The car of the future will have a reader for in town traffic
    following coded and buried cables in the traffic lanes.
    For women with considerable height the tall yoga pants can provide comfort and durability.

    Add to the fact that elements of rebellious youth
    culture, be it punk, skater, hip hop or metal, often embrace
    the hoodie as the outfit of choice, notoriously linking it
    to gangs or unseemly behavior.

About MST

Mud, Sweat and Tears was dreamt up some time ago. I had returned to the sport of running (competitively) after around a 15 year layoff due to injury.
