Product description

Review

"A wonderfully subtle and ambitious book" (P.D. Smith Guardian)

"Insightful and intoxicating. Vybarr Cregan-Reid's book makes you take your shoes off and run through a world of ideas about nature." (Lynne Truss)

"Delightful" (The Times Literary Supplement)

"Footnotes is a blazing achievement." (Kate Norbury Caught by the River)

"Few have done it so artfully and completely." (Oliver Balch Literary Review)

"Here is a book in which the striding energy of the prose matches its subject." (Iain Sinclair)

"Wonderfully authoritative vindication of what ought to be a self-evident truth: that running should be about being alive, not being a consumer." (Richard Askwith - author of Running Free: A Runner’s Journey Back to Nature)

"It’s hard to imagine a more compelling or poetic running companion than Vybarr Cregan-Reid. He inspires us not just to run, but to be truly alive while we are doing it." (Scarlett Thomas)

"A brilliant, broad-ranging and beautiful book. Like a great run into a wild landscape, it opens the heart and the mind, taking you off into the unknown, delighting at every turn and returning you changed for the better." (Rob Cowen - author of Common Ground)
