The Bedlamites

Synopsis

The Bedlamites are a group of fell runners who organise races up some of the most well-known and beautiful peaks in and around Yorkshire, UK. But these runners don't meet on a clear sunny day at the weekend or on a summer's evening. These races are run in winter, sometimes through thick fog and rain, on grassy, uneven and slippery terrain and during the night.

Under the cover of darkness they meet to race up and down the Fells using only torches to guide them over the harsh terrain in severe weather conditions.

Through this film we hope to transport the audience into this black and white world of nighttime, off-road running where moonlight and a chilly wind reveal the landscape in a very different way; where the snaking of lights up hillsides provide a luminous spectacle and where the narrow spread of the torchlight gives each runner a focus to drive them on up the hill.
