Description

A Year on the Run takes every day of the year and tells a single running story from it. With striking and beautiful illustrations inspired by the stories told, the world of running is brought to life like never before.

Entries recount historic wins, infamous incidents and incredible feats of endurance. From Paula Radcliffe's record-breaking marathon win to the birth of the gruelling Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc and even bizarre moments from the sport, such as Kilian Jornet's tequila stop on his way to winning the Hardrock 100 and the Bangkok half-marathon U-turn that set runners on a much longer journey than expected.

Running writer Damian Hall brings together the most important, memorable and intriguing moments of this wide and varied sport. With stunning illustrations by artist Daniel Seex, each inspired by the stories told, A Year on the Run is a sporting treasure trove of human virtue, vice and running trivia.

The author

Damian Hall is an outdoor journalist and ultramarathon-runner who has completed many of the world’s famous and not-so-famous long-distance walks, including the Everest Base Camp trek for his honeymoon. His most memorable trek, however, was when a possum stole his walking boot on the Six Foot Track in Australia’s Blue Mountains.  

DANIEL SEEX is a professional illustrator and has worked for a number of high profile clients including Google, Channel 4, Johnnie Walker and Chivas Regal and for cycling publications the Ride Journal and Boneshaker. Daniel works primarily in pen and ink adding colour and texture digitally and often building a picture from multiple drawings. He lives in Edinburgh with his partner Julia. www.thejoyofseex.co.uk
