Julie Carter, doctor and psychologist, is a veteran British and English fell running champion, and has recently released her book ‘Running The Red Line’.
It is an informative and engaging book about running and competing, about the beauty of the fells, and above all about human emotion. Her stories are at times hilarious, at times tragic but always bravely honest.
Powerful tales of meeting life’s challenge with determination – told with a unique style and insight. The narrative puts the ideas of modern psychology to the test, distilling what is of value to everyday life. We all have our limits, our own red lines, but we spend a lot of time with huge margins between what we do and what we can do.

About the Author – Julie Carter.
Julie Carter grew up in Sunderland and taught Outdoor Education in Cumbria before going to Medical school, then working for many years in Emergency Medicine and General Practice. On moving back to Cumbria in 2004 she was inspired to want to start fell running. After a terrible accident in which a close friend died she found solace and healing in her new-found sport. At times Julie found it hard to sustain her running due to the demands of work and her own physical problems with a congenital disability affecting her back. Despite this she flourished on the fells and twice became national champion in her age group.
Julie’s interest in helping others to succeed motivated her to write ‘Running The Red Line’. Not only to wanting to share things of beauty and to share her feelings but also valuable and useful insights into the challenges we all face in life, whether we run or not.
Julie trained as Human Givens therapist to assist her in helping the people she saw in General Practice, acknowledging that the medical model often lacks the answers about emotional and physical health that so many are seeking . She found the approach so helpful and effective that this has become her full-time work. For more information on the Human Givens approach see www.hgi.org.
