Last year’s Car Pull, in which a team of women hauled a car all the way from the centre of Ambleside to the summit of Kirkstone Pass, was one of the spectator highlights of Festival of the Fells.

The orange-clad women broke their record by completing the pull up the fearsome slopes of The Struggle in 1 hour 2 minutes.

This year, there is a men’s team are attempting to beat the WORLD RECORD of 52.20mins.
