A FILM documenting the sweat and tears that go into completing one of the Lake District’s most gruelling physical challenges is due to have its premiere.

‘Ten’ tells the story of Joe Morrell, one of the runners in 2019’s Brathay 10in10, in which runners complete 10 consecutive marathons around Windermere on 10 consecutive days.

The final marathon coincides with the ASICS Windermere Marathon, which is held every year in May, and which attracts thousands of runners from across the country.

Since it first began in 2007 the event has raised over £1m for the Brathay Trust, in Ambleside.

Brathay works with 7000 youngsters every year, many of whom are struggling at school, at risk of sexual exploitation or are in, or leaving, care.

Film maker Giles Brown, from Kendal, followed Joe’s progress over six months throughout his training and participation in the event.
