A RUNNING legend in his 80s will return to finish a gruelling fell race he entered in his 20s.

Eighty-three-year-old running legend, and shepherd, Joss Naylor MBE is hoping to rewrite his racing history on Saturday 20 July by returning to the Lake District Mountain Trail.

Mr Naylor has entered every every Lake District Mountain Trail since 1960, except for one.

The 1962 event took place in exceptionally poor weather and Joss says it has always bothered him that he had to retire from the race due to severe cramp and the appalling weather conditions.

He will run it on July 20 in memory of George Brass the only runner who finished the 1962 Lake District Mountain Trail. See more at JustGiving page at: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/joss19625
