This Lake District Running Print is an ideal gift for a runner. It features Steve’s poem which describes the joy of running perfectly:


“Sometimes you need to run

To grab your trainers, yours shorts and vest

To leave behind the emails and text

What’s been before, what’s happening next

Sometimes you need the hills, the lakes

the wind, the pain the footpaths and rain

To not wait for that shy and fickle sun.

Sometimes you just need to run

Not for a purpose or a goal

Just for the sound of your steps

Re-charging your soul.”


Steve Corbett (also known as the husband) is not only a talented writer but also an avid runner and lover of the Lake District. He’s well placed to create the poem for this Lake District running print and we’re delighted that it inspires so many of you.

We’re inspired by many outdoors pursuits – please have a look at our other gifts in our outdoors range.

Lake District Poem Print
Lake District Print
This wonderful Lake District Print has been created as a collaboration with Steven on words and Helena illustrating. It perfectly captures what it is about the Lake District that people love and return year in year out for. It makes the perfect Christmas gift for a friend, husband or wife and will spark many a happy memories of time spent walking and drinking in the fresh air. The poem reads as follows:  

We got lost in those hills and lakes, so lost.


 Forgot who we were for those few days

Lost ourselves to the pubs and the people

To the wind rippled water, the wide open sky

Lost in the light and landscape

To the whispers and the rustle of the season

Marked time by the width of a meadow,

By early morning climbs and slow descents

 Gave ourselves up to its simplicity

Walked, talked, eat, and slept.

Had time to remember, little to forget

Found that silly side of ourselves again

Dreamers, schemers, post children in-betweeners

 Imagined we might get lost forever

 In this little part of heaven,

 And its changeable weather.

You and I, lost and forever
