Once the reserve of only the most hardcore enthusiasts, ultra running is now a thriving global industry, with hundreds of thousands of competitors each year. But is the rise of this most brutal and challenging sport – with races that extend into hundreds of miles – an antidote to modern life, or a symptom of a modern illness? Award-winning author Adharanand Finn travels to the heart of the sport to investigate the reasons behind its rise, and to discover what it takes to be an ultra runner.
