Go trail and fell running with Kingsley

Kingsley is the author of two trail running guidebooks for Cicerone - Trail and Fell Running in the Lake District and also Trail Running in Chamonix and the Mont Blanc region.

Kingsley's love of the mountains started as a 5 year old. It wasn't a big surprise that he studied geography and glaciology at university. He's climbed the north faces of the Eiger, Matterhorn and Grandes Jorasses in the Alps, and led expeditions to mountains all over the world. Through mountaineering he developed a passion for a minimalist approach in the mountains, and soon discovered trail running as an ultimate form of fast and light travel.

He runs a mountain running and guiding company (, and so divides his time between the Alps and the Lake District each year. This peripatetic lifestyle enables him to guide running groups in the mountains throughout the year, and his qualifications range from UIMLA International Mountain Leader to Personal Trainer.
