'A Year on the Run.' 365 stories from the world of running

'A Year on the Run' takes every day of the year and tells a single running story from it. With original and beautiful illustrations inspired by the stories told the world of running is brought to life.

Entries recount historic wins, infamous incidents and incredible feats of endurance. From Paula Radcliffe's record-breaking London Marathon win to the birth of the gruelling Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc and even bizarre moments from the sport, such as Kilian Jornet's tequila stop on his way to winning the Hardrock 100 and the Bangkok half-marathon U-turn that set runners on a much longer journey than expected.

Running writer Damian Hall brings together the most important, memorable and intriguing moments of this wide and varied sport. Stacked with original illustrations by artist Daniel Seex, each inspired by the stories told, A Year on the Run is a sporting treasure trove of human virtue, vice and running trivia.
