Though we’ve been legging it around this planet since the first man spotted a wild animal that was significantly bigger than him, it feels like running as a sport has never been more popular than it is right now.
Despite marathons and trail running comps having been cancelled over the past 12 months, it appears that being able to pop on a pair of trainers and go off for a run has been one of the saving graces of life on lockdown. Combining first-hand experiences of some of the world’s most exhilarating, challenging, and uplifting runs and races with – quite literally – breathtaking imagery, Gestalten’s new book ‘On the Run’ serves as further inspiration to people of all levels of fitness to embrace the joy of a good jog.
Showcasing how runners from all types of different backgrounds, of different ages, and with different abilities are championing the sport, this revelatory release is the perfect book to pick up if you’re struggling to get off the couch and into the park. It’s written by British long-distance runner and adventurer Nick Butter, who was the first person to ever run a marathon in every country in the world (in just 23 months) this is a beautifully put together piece of work and one that hopefully your eyes and legs will thank you for.
