We love books of all kinds and feel incredibly lucky to count writing them as our job. Over the past few years we've explored the length and breadth of the country researching and photographing incredible places and amazing adventures in the great British outdoors. Our first book, Wild Running, was published in 2014 by Wild Things Publishing. Amazing Family Adventures (National Trust) and Day Walks in Devon (Vertebrate) came out in 2017 and our latest book, The Adventurer's Guide to Britain, was published by Bloomsbury in 2018. We have a busy 2019 lined up with the fully-updated second edition of Wild Running due out in February and our second book in the Day Walks series, this time covering beautiful Cornwall, out in April.
This brand new edition of Wild Running selects Britain’s top 200 trail runs. Chosen for their incredible terrain, sensational beauty and ease of navigation, this is the perfect running guide for beginners and experts alike. From gentle runs to hard-as-nails ascents, discover epic trails through spectacular mountain, forest and coastal scenery. Stunning photography and engaging writing chart the history of each run, route and landscape, making this a must-have guide for runners and explorers. Updated with 150 new runs, including directions, terrain data and safety advice, with Ordnance Survey 1:250,000 route maps and links to 1:25,000 maps and GPX downloads.
We’re super excited to announce that our new book, The Adventurer’s Guide to Britain, is out now from Bloomsbury. It’s a collection of some of our very favourite adventures from right across the country, from surfing off John O’Groats and sea snorkelling on Harris to bikepacking the South Downs Way and a swimrun adventure around the Isles of Scilly. We have included 150 incredible experiences that showcase the best way to explore each area and you’ll find running, scrambling, swimming, kayaking, cycling and wild camping adventures to try. You’ll also find recommendations for places to eat, sleep and explore nearby. We reckon you’ll enjoy reading it as much as we enjoyed writing it
