JOSS NAYLOR - IRON MAN
35 MILES, 20 LAKELAND PEAKS, 18,000 FEET OF ASCENT IN UNDER 15 HOURS AND ALL AT THE AGE OF 73
A film of a unique physical challenge. Legendary athlete JOSS NAYLOR retired shepherd from Wasdale, wanted to celebrate his fifty years of fell running. So on the longest day of the year he set off from Mungrisdale in the northern fells of the LAKE DISTRICT to run home to Greendale in the Wasdale valley
Three films crews, each of them giving him about 30 years, struggled to keep up with him. Friends and family, fell runners he's competed with over the years and commentators like Richard Askwith, author of Feet in the Clouds, ran with him for part of the way, helped him through the pain barrier. The result is an uplifting and challenging celebration of the achievements of a truly world class athlete.
