Richard Askwith is a Northamptonshire-based journalist and author whose passions include running, outdoor adventure and the traditions and ordinary people of the English countryside.
His life was changed by a mid-life encounter with the unforgiving northern sport of fell-running. A decade-and-a-half of running, stumbling, shivering and getting lost in Britain’s wildest mountains provided the raw material for his best-selling book, 'Feet in the Clouds'.
He is also the author of such titles as ‘Unbreakable: the Countess, the Nazis and the World’s Most Dangerous Horse-race’, ‘Running Free: A Runner’s Journey Back to Nature’ and ‘The Lost Village: In Search of a Forgotten Rural England’.
