In 1988 Colin Donnelly set an astonishing record time for the enchainment of the fifteen 3000 foot peaks of Wales. In the quarter of a century since this feat, no runner has come close to equalling his time of 4 hours and 19 minutes. Alun Hughes captured footage of the run and this short film is just one chapter of his classic outdoor film '80s Birth of the Extreme' available for download on Steepedge: steepedge.com/categories/adventure-racing/the-80s-birth-of-extreme-vol-1.html
