A fell runner once more

Documentary about Steve Pearson's return to running after a double hip replacement

When arthritis left Steve Pearson barely able to walk his youthful hobby of spending up to 24 hours straight running up the hills and mountains of the north of England seemed a distant memory. That was until a double hip replacement gave him back the use of his legs. Despite his doctor’s warnings, what began as a walk, and turned into a jog, has eventually lead to Steve - now in his 60’s - rekindling his love for fell running.
