Book Review // Wild Running

Spent the summer running over the fells near home and need a bit of inspiration to get out over the winter? Then this book is for you.

Jam packed with over 200 great routes from around the country, it’s a great place to start if you’re heading somewhere new and need inspiration for your runs.

The book is organised into regions making navigation easy. Each route has only short one paragraph descriptions and the maps at the back are only really useful for identifying where the runs are. So on the face of it, its only good for inspiration but still requires a lot of though and planning.

Not so. Each route description has a unique code for a website for online downloads which includes gpx files for devices to enable you to keep you from getting lost when on the trail.

Compiling the book in this format allows there to be great photos and general information on the areas without the book having to have detailed maps which would make it too big.

Wild Running is a fantastic way to get inspiration to get off the road and into the hills and fields and a quick way to find route to run when you visit an area for the first time.
