Tomax ambassador stars in thrilling adventure film

Top ultra runner Damian Hall, who is an ambassador for Tomax Technology, is one of the stars in a new film.

“Totally FKT”, which premiered at this weekend’s Kendal Mountain Festival 2020, reveals the audacious attempt by Hall and John Kelly to break an historic record on one of the UK’s toughest long-distance paths.

Totally FKT uncovers the on-the-trail story of elite athletes Hall and Kelly as they battle to set the fastest time on the 260-mile Pennine Way.

The goal is a seemingly unachievable time of 65 hours 20 minutes set 31 years ago by legendary English fell runner Mike Hartley.

Although Hall and Kelly made their remarkable attempts a week apart, the film cleverly weaves together their two stories of pain, exhaustion, illness and, finally, relief and joy, in up-close detail.

For those that do not know the eventual outcome, it offers nail-biting viewing, while for those that do, it is a chance to witness the grit and determination required to run non-stop on the notoriously intimidating route.

Totally FKT is the latest creation by award-winning film-makers Ellie and Matt Green, of Summit Fever Media.

The 52-minute film includes impressive drone footage and on-the-ground camera work, as well as fascinating interviews with the two runners, as well as Hartley, mountain running pioneer Martin Stone, support crew lead Nicky Lygo and pacers, among others.

Clive Allen, director of Kendal Mountain Festival 2020, said:  “It’s an amazing film that gives us insight into the inner world of the mountain ultra runner and the motivation needed to keep going when your body says, ‘Stop!.”

Damian Hall said of Totally FKT: ”It’s both horrible and hilarious watching yourself on screen and the film becomes something of a gurning contest between John and I.

“Matt and Ellie worked incredibly hard on this and always seemed to pop up when I was at my worst.  I especially love the interviews with the likes of Mike Hartley, Martin Stone and Nicky Lygo. Their hard work and talent has paid off yet again.”

Matt and Ellie said: “We were given a fantastic opportunity this summer to provide insight into two dedicated athletes giving their all, against the odds, to break a legendary trail running record.

“Now, we are really excited to release Totally FKT. There has been plenty of blood, sweat and late nights working on it, so we hope everyone enjoys the result.”

Totally FKT is on general release. To view: See Vimeo, price £5.98. https://vimeo.com/ondemand/penninewayfkt

For this project, Summit Fever Media partnered with Trees not Tees, which offers race directors an alternative to event t-shirts – planting a tree instead.

Tomax Technology ambassador Damian Hall is record-breaking ultramarathon runner, who represented Great Britain at the age of 40. He is also a freelance journalist and author, a running coach, public speaker, husband and parent.

ADVICE FROM DAMIAN

ARE WE BORN TO RUN?

We all are. In fact running is what made us humans in the first place.

AIM FOR CONSISTENCY

Consistency is a boring word, but when it comes to getting fitter and healthier it’s the key one. It’s better to walk, run (or cycle) a small amount often, than a big amount occasionally. So 3-5 miles every other day, for example, is better than no exercise all week, then 10 miles at the weekend (even though 10 miles at the weekend is definitely still better than nothing at all). Doing things ‘little but often’ makes you more likely to fit them into your lifestyle, too.

HIT THE PILLOW

Other than regular light exercise, the best thing you can do for your overall health is to sleep well. Poor sleep is linked to numerous serious ailments, whereas getting eight hours sleep on average per night gives all sorts of resetting health benefits. Hit the pillow hard! Your body and mind will thank you for it.

GO GREEN

Scientists talk of the biophilia effect: an innate desire to be in green places and the ability for nature to lift us psychologically. Numerous studies link wellbeing to regularly experiencing natural environments. Put simply, we’re happier and healthier when we visit green places more often. Exercising amongst trees rather than traffic, on trails rather than tarmac, has a double-whammy, all-round health boost.

EAT THE RAINBOW

There’s so much dietary advice around at the moment, often from unqualified sources, and that’s confusing. Put simply, above all else, eat plenty of fruit and vegetables. They’re packed with numerous health boosting nutrients, tasty, varied, readily available and fun. Aim for as many colours on your plate as possible.
