Considering a few mitigating circumstances in 2020, Damian Hall has had a superb year. He set the tone in January when he broke the Fastest Known Time (FKT) for a winter Paddy Buckley, completing the round solo and unsupported. After lockdown, he broke John Kelly's week old Pennine Way record and more recently set a FKT on the South Wales Traverse.

In the run-up to Kendal Mountain Festival, we're interviewing some stars of the show and Damian is part of the film Totally FKT - a Summit Fever Media documentary that covers Damian and John Kelly's attempts to break the 31-year-old Pennine Way record.

Totally FKT premieres on Sunday 22nd November at 4:30pm.
