In the summer of 2014 I ran around the Tour de Mont Blanc, the classic mountain tour in the heart of the Alps. Travelling over and through high passes, wide valleys and Alpine towns, this book describes the journey - its challenges, experiences and incredible mountain scenery.
Illustrated by paintings of some of the scenes I saw while running along, High Inspiration also explores the drive behind mountain running and racing, and of how simply being in the mountains has inspired climbers, writers, artists and innovators such as Nan Shepherd, Walter Bonatti, Andy Parkin and Katherine Mansfield.
High Inspiration is now published - you can now order a copy below or on the Little Peak Press website.
All the paintings from High Inspiration are currently on show at The Artworks in Otley, where you can also buy prints and copies of the book.
