An attempt to break the record for the most Lake District peaks reached in 24 hours has fallen short, after the runner attempting it was forced to give up.
Steve Birkinshaw put on his running gear
and set out to establish a new record number of 78, making use of the longest daylight of any weekend this year over June 19th and 20th.
However, he was forced to pull out after feeling dizzy, suffering stomach problems and falling behind schedule.
Blaming errors in food and drink consumption, he posted on the Fellrunner's Association forum: "Eventually after 12 hours it all came up, around three pints of liquid and food. I felt lighter but by then the damage was done."
He did not say if another attempt is planned soon.
Today (June 21st) is the longest day of the year and with the sunset occurring close to 22:00 BST in northern England and later still in Scotland, those donning jogging clothing
may wish to undertake long runs well into the evening to make the most of the light.
At Inverness in the Scottish Highlands, the sunset will not take place until 22:19 BST.
