It's a Hill, Get Over It tells the story of fell running from its 19th-century origins to the present day. Exponents of the sport through the ages have maintained not only an amateur ethos, but also a wariness of change and public attention. As a result, many of their greatest achievements have not always been given the credit they deserve.

To complete this detailed history, author Steve Chilton has included in-depth conversations with many of the greats, including Tommy Sedgwick, Jeff Norman, Pauline and Kenny Stuart, Helene Whitaker and Rob Jebb.

Steve Chilton is the author of five fell running books: It's a Hill, Get Over ItRunning HardThe RoundAll or Nothing at All and Voices from the Hills. He is a committed runner and qualified athletics coach. He has considerable experience of fell running, competing in the World Vets Championships when it was held in Keswick in 2005. He is a long-time member of the Fell Runners Association (FRA).
