What running book has inspired you the most?
It's a question I would have difficulty answering. My answers would be somewhere on this list.
I ber if you asked people then this book will appear at the top of many lists, and for good reason.
I read this a few years ago and fell in love with the Lake District and returned there many times. I actually met Richard at an Endurance Life talk about his experiences of the Bob Graham Round. Oddly enough just after he finished talking a couple of friends of mine were just finishing their own Bob Graham Round, inspired by the book he was just talking about.
I have read this book and loved it and am definitely going to retrace his steps one day and attempt the BGR. Many others have done so.
Anyhoo, I write this post to draw your attention to the fact that this book is being re-released after 10 years. Not very old and not many books can claim to have got so many people into ultra running. I have been sent three copies by the publishers to give away in a competition.
To be in with a chance just answer the following questions in this survey. I will write a summary of the results later.
Entries in by May 12th and you must be UK based. I will pick the completed answers at random. You have more chance of winning this book that you do of finishing this race.
Good Luck :)
