'The  greater the challenge, the sweeter the reward, but also the greater the  risk of failure. And fear of failure is the greatest barrier to  success.'

Sabrina Verjee is an ultrarunning  phenomenon. In June 2021, on her fourth attempt, she became the first  person to climb the Lake District’s 214 Wainwright hills in under six  days, running 325 miles with a colossal 36,000 metres of ascent.

Where There’s a Hill tells the story of an outsider who was never picked for a school sports  team yet went on to become an accomplished modern pentathlete and  adventure racer. After switching her focus to ultrarunning in her  thirties, Sabrina moved to the Lake District, where she could hone her  mountain-running skills on the local fells. High-profile success in  endurance events followed, as she completed the Dragon’s Back Race three  times and was the outright winner of the 2019 Summer Spine Race,  beating her nearest competitor by more than eight hours.

However,  it was the Wainwrights Round which really captured Sabrina’s  imagination. Having learnt about the challenge from fell-running legend  Steve Birkinshaw, Sabrina began to plan an attempt of her own. Despite  multiple obstacles – including lockdown regulations, bad weather, injury  and controversy – Sabrina’s grit and determination shone through. Where There’s a Hill is a frank and inspirational account of how one woman ran her way into the record books.
