A Day at the Races

Fell Running Briefs trialled a new photographer on Sunday at the Ian Hodgson Mountain Relay. We think you'll agree he's got great potential and enthusiasm for the sport of fellrunning and a talent for capturing the atmosphere. We'll forgive him for occasionally forgetting to stand still as he took the pictures!

Here are 11 year old Elliot's Collection;
