Product Description

Review

This may well be the ultimate guide to 50 of the world's best marathons. It's one of those books that looks, feels, just 'is' wonderful to have and to hold. The races are all there for you to dream of escaping to; the practical details, expert analysis and pictures had the Rf office salivating as Hugh Jones and Alexander James whisk you off to every marathon you could ever hope to run. The question we were asking, as we turned each page, is how are we going to fit in all of these amazing races?

This is a great guide to all who run, have run or wish to run, on which marathon to choose and why. We particularly liked the difficulty rating, special considerations and insider information that this book delivers, and felt both marathon apprentice or master would be left with no doubt about which race is right for them. You don't have to be a seasoned marathon runner to relate to this read. Novices can pick up this book and find motivation on every page.

Once you have gained such an insight to so many potential adventures, it may be a question of fitting in life around future marathon goals rather than vice versa. I've given a copy of this to my dad, himself a seasoned marathon runner and global traveller, as I know he will enjoy looking at and learning about all the marathons he didn't run. And for me, the marathon that most stood out of the pages has to be the Midnight Sun Marathon in Norway... this really looks like a race of a lifetime. Stunning photography and a book for life. --Running Fitness
