With over 200 years of history behind it, fell running is one of the Yorkshire Dales’ original sports, no doubt inspired by its awesome fells. A ‘race up and down a nearby hillside’ has been a pursuit passed down through the centuries. This exhibition lifts the lid on fell running heritage and the contemporary running scene. Its stars, pioneers and iconic races feature through brand new imagery by award winning photographer, Stephen Garnett.
The exhibition is a part of the official launch of the www.runthedales.org.uk, to raise awareness of one of the most accessible and traditional sports of all – Fell Running – the original sport of the Yorkshire Dales.
The Run the Dales website and exhibition has been created and curated by the writer Victoria Benn, author of new book Peak Performance which chronicles the great sporting legacy of Ingleborough and the Yorkshire Dales’ Three Peaks.
