“For me, the worst bit of training is shaking in the car afterwards and not being able to warm up,” says one of the four women attempting the UK’s High Peak Marathon.

A forty-mile race, over uneven ground, at night, during the winter months – what’s not to like?

What I do like about this short video, which you can watch in full below for free, is that it’s very much not about the destination but the journey of the four friends to get there.

Cold toes certainly, but oh so much more.
