An illustrated log of running the Lakeland summits as listed in the Wainwright Pictorial Guides. By Barry Holmes.

Recently-retired Barry Holmes thought he was over the hill at 60. So he bought a pair of running shoes and challenged himself to bag the Lakeland fells.

His mission – sometimes painful, often wet, occasionally meandering, but always entertaining – takes him to all 214 Wainwright summits as he battles bracken, blizzards and blisters; injuries, white-outs, and weary limbs to discover the best and worst of Lakeland.

Part graphical love-letter to the Lake District and part journal of a runner finding his stride, Over the Hill at 60 Something? – a gorgeous 144-page hardback - will absorb and inspire anyone who’s set their eyes on the high places of Cumbria – then set off to conquer them.
