Product Description

Product Description

Every sport has rules. Running is no exception. If you're curious, just visit the Web site of USA Track & Field, the sport's governing body, where you'll find detailed dictates on everything from disqualification to bib-number placement to the caliber of the starter's pistol.

But what about the everyday rules of running? The unspoken ones that pertain to the lingo, behavior, and etiquette that every seasoned runner seems to know and every newbie needs to learn? Veteran runner Mark Remy and the editors of Runner's World magazine provide answers to these very questions and many more in The Runner's Rule Book.

With 100+ rules that cover the basics of running, racing, track etiquette, and apparel and gear, including hilarious running commentary on running culture, The Runner's Rule Book will be the reference guide you'll turn to again and again for answers to your burning running questions.

About the Author

Mark Remy lives, runs, and writes in eastern Pennsylvania, where he is the executive editor of RunnersWorld.com. He has run 15 marathons, including 5 Bostons, with a personal best time of 2:46. (Note: He ran that 2:46 in 1999; see Rule 1.51, page 54.)

5.0 out of 5 stars It does exactly what it says on the cover... 22 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a great book for experienced runners and beginners alike. It is both informative and entertaining in equal measure and covers off many things that a runner wants to know and might be afraid to ask. I shall continue to refer to it for my own running.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very amusing. 26 July 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is an amusing look at the do's and dont's of running; it did make me both nod sagely in agreement and laugh out loud. It shows that, as with all sports, we know what we are like, and we can laugh at ourselves and our foibles.
