    Running's vast history is a fascinating mix of gripping endurance feats, inspired solo pursuits and a whole host of heroes, hellions, and legend-makers.Running historian Damian Hall brings together some of the most incredible, iconic, and at times highly unusual moments from the world of running. Through tales of Emil Zatopek's record-breaking wins and the birth of the greatest marathons and ultra-trails, as well as the extraordinary feats of the Galloping Granny and Marathon Monks, running's illustrious past is brought to life.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.
