Epic Runs of the World – by Lonely Planet

I just got this book as a Christmas present and it is amazing. With all the pandemic and canceled races, it has been a great source of motivation to look into future amazing runs.

Because it is not only about races, there are epic runs you can do on your own following the book as a guide. How about a climb into the foothills of Nepal, an ultra-trail in Australia, or an epic Park Run in Portland?

Get the Hardcover here, it’s a fantastic coffee table book.
