Photo Shoot with ‘The Outdoor City’…

The end of 2016 saw the formation of #TeamAccelerateInov8, all part of the existing Team Accelerate. The five of us are young athletes who share a love of fell running and a desire to perform well at a high level. Coached by Stuart Hale we are working on technique, strength and stability and race fitness as well as having a lot of laughs in the process! We are lucky enough to be supported not only by Stuart and Team Accelerate but also by top fell running brand Inov8 who provide us with some fantastic kit. As part of this support, Jack Crownshaw and I were involved in a photo shoot with the Outdoor City (a scheme designed to get Sheffield out and active in the Peaks). Not only that we had the opportunity to explore one of their yet to be announced longer City to Peak routes. We had a fantastic day running around in the peaks, jumping in puddles and generally messing about, with photographer Gemma Thorpe on hand to catch us when we looked a tiny bit photogenic. It was a great chance to test out some of the kit provided by Inov-8 and to see some stunning views of the Peaks along the routs of the New Outdoor City Trail Routes.

Jack, Gemma and Me feeling excited to get started!

Both of us wearing our Inov-8 X-Talon 225s – great for gripping on slippy ground!

Running along the edge of the world!!

Making a splash!

An incredible shot of us messing around, jumping off rocks.

So look out for the announcement for The Outdoor City Longer trail routes, there’s definitely a clue here, plus Accelerate will be heading out for an Adventure Run on March 18th.  You can find out more about this here >>

Here’s to a fun 2017, made much easier by Inov-8, Accelerate and the Team from APC. Thanks for the support!
