    Inhaltsangabe

    Marathons are no longer impressive.

    Pain is to be relished, not avoided. 

    Hallucinations are perfectly normal. 

    Ultra running defies conventional logic. Yet this most brutal and challenging sport is now one of the fastest growing in the world. But is it an antidote to modern life or a symptom of a modern illness? 

    Adharanand Finn travelled to the heart of the sport to find out - and to see if could become an ultra runner himself. His journey took him from the deserts of Oman to the snow-capped peaks of the Rockies, and from a 24-hour track race in Tooting to his ultimate goal, the 105-mile Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc. 

    The Rise of the Ultra Runners is the electrifying, inspirational account of what he learned along the way. Through encounters with the sport's many colourful characters and his experiences of its soaring highs and crushing lows, Finn offers an unforgettable insight into what can be found at the boundaries of human endeavour.

    Mandatory Reading

    This is a must read for anyone who has ever laced up a pair of running shoes. But it should come with a warning that you will begin to look up what distance running events are going on in you area. l loved every moment of this book.

    some interesting stories

    I liked hearing about the different perspectives of many ultra-runners but I found the book overly focused on the author's own experience suffering through races. What I find so enjoyable and inspirational when hearing stories about ultra running is how much the runners love running - there is pain and exhaustion at times but that does not usually seem to be the focus. In this book the pain was a very important theme and it was depressing at times.
    Overall an ok audiobook, I don't regret buying it.
