A classic and New York Times bestseller. Just speak to any runner during an ultra and no doubt they have read, or at least are aware of this book. Chris tells a story about a tribe deep in the valleys of Mexico, who’s endurance running is pure of heart, almost untouched by the western world. A band of elite ultra runners head to find their secret and take part against them in a local 50 mile race. As well as a compelling story, Chris explores one of the religious like subjects of ultra running, barefoot running.
