“For me, the worst bit of training is shaking in the car afterwards and not being able to warm up,” says one of four women attempting the UK’s annual 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 the four friends go on as they push themselves to the limit.

Cold toes certainly, but oh so much more.
