Run with Steve on Friday

A few people have asked whether they can run the last leg with Steve on Friday evening. I've checked with Steve and he is very happy for runners to join him for the last leg... The more the merrier!

If you are keen to run with Steve this will be a once in a generation oppertunity to see a major fell running record broken (fingers crossed everything still goes to plan). Regardless, it would be fantastic for Steve to have a big crowd of runners to accompany him on the last leg and/or meet him in Keswick.

If he is on schedule it'll mean leaving Newland Hause at roughly 1800 on Friday evening and running/walking (slowly) to Keswick. It is 17km with 1000m of ascent. Steve should arrive in Keswick about about 2300. Anyone joining Steve will need to check his tracker to make sure they arrive at Newlands Hause in time to join him as obviously his timings may change. I'll keep the blog as up to date as I can with the ETA.

Here is the location of Newland Hause:

Don't miss out on this opportunity to run into the records books with a fell running legend!


  1. Total respect to Steve, what an inspiration. A lesson to me about going through the pain barrier with blisters and sore feet:) AWESOME. Will be watching the tracker Friday evening and willing him on, just wish I could be there. I wish the donation could be more.

  2. A fantastic achievment to be part of, although in a very small way.
    I will be there. Mike Langrish.

  3. Trying to work out how I can be there. Amazing job, Steve.

  4. See you on Friday Steve... keep going & well done for your amazing effort so far!

  5. Looking at the route/progress, he'll likely be past newlands hause by Midday tomorrow. UNless he's taking a good break. Any further predictions as to times?
