fellephant’s Book Shelf

Here is a list of the books and brochures I’ve collected since I started fell running in 2006. Any advice on books which you think I should add to my collection would be much appreciated.

Yes I know I don’t have Bill Smith’s book. I do know someone, however, who has three signed copies all to himself. Lucky him.

2013 marked the year I tried to compete for The King of the Mountains trophy. Programs are here from both Ben Nevis and Snowdon in that year. Murray Strain took the title in 2013, with me finishing second……………from last overall.

Murray’s combined time for Snowdon, Ben Nevis and Scafell Pike (the races combined for the title) almost equaled my time just for the Ben Nevis race alone. I still live in hope.

P.S. I really like the map, in the Red Guides Lake District book, of the diagram of the panoramic view from the summit of Helvellyn.
