My Top Nine Videos on YouTube

fell running videos

This was the year my YouTube channel finally got some momentum thanks to my filming of fell running! It is such a shame the rules of making money changed just as it was taking off as I would have a steady little income from it... I need to boost my subscribers to match the views and then I can earn some pennies *blatant beg*

Meanwhile here are my top nine videos by views from the last 12 months:

1) 3 Peaks Fell Race on Pen Y Ghent

My son and I hiked part way up to film the brave souls setting out on this year's 3 Peaks Fell Race the marathon with mountains:

2) Grasmere Sports Senior Guides Race

I was working as a steward at this year's Grasmere Sports so missed my son's fell race. I did get out in time to film the Seniors with commentary by the legendary Pete Bland:

3) Anniversary Waltz and Teenager with Altitude descent from Cat Bells

My son again helped me to film the final descent of these races from side of Cat Bells. A stunning day to cheer on the runners as they headed for home:

4) 3 Peaks Fell Race - the finish

The race was so long my son and I had time to get to back to the finish to film all the runners who made it to the end of this gruelling race:

5) Kendal Mountain Festival 10km Trail Race

I was lucky enough to be able to capture this race both near the start on Beast Banks and then as the runners returned to the town. A great advert for the Mountain Festival:

6) Kendal Winter League Giggleswick Seniors

Kendal Winter League is hosted by Helm Hill Runners as a challenging series of races in our local area. Giggleswick is hosted by the school and nearly always seems to include snow! It also has a stream which needs to be crossed twice...

7) Kendal Winter League Barbondale Seniors

This is one of the most dramatic of the series to shoot. I again enlisted my son's help to film this one:

8) Kendal Winter League Giggleswick Juniors

This is a tough race for the little ones many of whom get very wet attempting the water crossing:

What has been your favourite one of my videos this year? It has been such a great pleasure meeting people out on the hillside and being told how much people look forward to seeing my film! I look forward to making more (and hopefully even better!) videos in 2019.
