Shortlisted for the William Hill Sports Book of the Year, the Boardman-Tasker Prize and awarded the prize for Best New Writer at the British Sports Publishing Awards, Richard Askwith's book on Fell Running was acclaimed as one of the best sports books of the year in 2005.Feet in the Clouds is a superb portrait of the wildest and grandest parts of Britain's landscape -- the Lake District, Scottish Highlands and Yorkshire Dales. It is peopled by some of the most idiosyncratic, tough and engaging individuals -- the legends of the fell-running world -- you could hope to read about. This is a very funny and truly compelling tale of how the author himself attempted one of fell-running's most arduous challenges: to run 42 Lakeland peaks non-stop within 24 hours.Richard Askwith is Associate Editor of the Independent. His pieces have appeared in the Observer Sport Monthly, the Independent on Sunday and Runner's World.
