A little history about the Lakes Sky Ultra, its conception, its design, its heart and its soul. Charlie talks about it all in this short clip produced by Steve Ashworth, AKA Movie It.
The Lakes Sky Ultra was certainly epic this year with cloud to 300m at times and as thick as old school lumpy custard. The runners, marshals and organising team were certainly tested to the limit by we all had a ball, so sit back, get a cup of tea and enjoy this little edit put together by the guys at MovieIt
Mark Lamb (Team Mountain Fuel) sets a course record for the Keswick Mountain Festival Salomon Running 5km distance this weekend after winning the Latrigg Fell Race 2 evenings before! The new course allowed the runners to concentrate on just running, as we removed the road crossings from the previous years race and designed a new course. Everyone seemed extremely happy and Mark ran a great time to claim his second victory of the festival's foot races. Of course we can't wait for next year now.... bring it on! Thanks to Mountain Fuel for the film work.
