Joss Naylor backs Something Wild

Joss Naylor backs Something Wild

It’s always good to have the support of a fell running legend. So we didn’t miss the chance to approach Joss Naylor, holder of innumerable fell running records, at last year’s Keswick Festival in the Lake District. Joss was happy to be photographed holding a make shift sign for the Something Wild Festival.

Joss Naylor’s records are extraordinary. But just for example he did the Welsh 3000s, the 14 peaks of Snowdonia in 4 hours 46 minutes in 1973 and the Pennine Way the year after in 3 days and 4 hours. And in 2006, aged 70 he ran 70 Lakeland fell tops, covering more than 50 miles and ascending more than 25,000 feet, in under 21 hours!

Joss was also part of the Wild Running Lakes Camp last April.
