Eden Escape is an unusual event which combines camping, music and good food with lots of fitness activities and adventures for all ages. There will be running and swimming sessions, yoga and Zumba dancing, massage therapies, and lots of children’s activities.

And along with a series of films from the Kendal Mountain Festival, top names from the outdoors world will be on the Inspiration stage. Ross headlines with Tom Williams, the global chief operating office from parkrun UK.

Also in May, Ross’s first book Running Adventures Scotland will be published, which features 25 inspiring running routes through some of Scotland’s awe-inspiring landscapes. From thrilling ridge lines and high summits to wandering trails through beautiful glens, the book is designed to be the adventure runner’s companion to exploring the best Scotland has to offer. Running Adventures Scotland will be released by Vertebrate Publishing in time for the festival.

One of the organisers, Wiz Lees, said: “We are thrilled that Ross has accepted our invitation to come and speak at the festival. We are very keen to show that adventures can be enjoyed without having to trek half way across the world, and while our own festival adventures will be at a local level, it will be wonderful to hear all about Ross’s exploits north of the border.”

Eden Escape festival will be staged at Mains Farm from May 27-29. Full details, and booking forms, can be found here:
