Overview

A jaunt through running’s greatest moments, gripping endurance feats, inspired solo pursuits and a whole host of heroes, helions and legend-makers.

From Paula Radcliffe's record-breaking marathon win to the birth of the gruelling Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc, Kilian Jornet's tequila stop on his way to winning the Hardrock 100 to the Bangkok half-marathon U-turn that set runners on a much longer journey than expected, the Galloping Granny to Marathon Monks, running historian Damian Hall brings together some of the most incredible, iconic, and at times highly unusual moments from the world of running.

With over 80 striking and unique illustrations by artist Daniel Seex, each inspired by the stories told, A Race Through the Greatest Running Stories is a sporting treasure trove of human virtue, vice and running trivia.
