Joss Naylor

Tomorrow (Saturday 25th June), 80 year old sheep farmer and legendary fell runner Joss Naylor MBE will be running from Caldbeck to Wasdale in the Lake District – a route of over 30 miles. He’s running in memory of his father, Joe Naylor, also a sheep farmer who was born in Caldbeck and moved to Wasdale in 1927. The run sees Joss mark his own 80th birthday as well as being a fundraiser for a charity he has supported for many years. The Cumbrian based Youth Charity, Brathay Trust, work with some of the most disadvantaged children & young people in the UK.
