The Guardian spotlights fell running

Posted in Through the Lens by Matt Ward on Tue 11 Jun '13


Inov8 are having a very good day PR wise! This excellent intro to fell running via the Guardian website showcases the sport in a very kind way, extolling the nature of fell running and why people do it, in an excellent four and half minute video…

Of course if you also have inov8 runner and 2011 British Fell Champ Morgan Donnelly chatting about it too then you really are onto a winner and Morgz does a great service in explaining the sport in layman’s terms to The Guardian’s Kate Carter. Top stuff!

    “. . . you can run up and down a hill for half an hour and get a free pint of beer and make some new friends.”

    Yup, I liked that bit!

    Sounds ideal! Much more fun than £30 for a road race, huh? Lots of cheeky inov8 product placement there for sure.

    Thank you! Glad you liked it :)

    Of course, the producers did a very kind job in cutting out the bits where I plaintively cried out “Wait for me! Wait for me!”

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.
