    Description

    Marathons are no longer impressive.

    Pain is to be relished, not avoided. 

    Hallucinations are perfectly normal. 

    Ultra running defies conventional logic. Yet this most brutal and challenging sport is now one of the fastest growing in the world. But is it an antidote to modern life or a symptom of a modern illness? 

    Adharanand Finn travelled to the heart of the sport to find out - and to see if could become an ultra runner himself. His journey took him from the deserts of Oman to the snow-capped peaks of the Rockies, and from a 24-hour track race in Tooting to his ultimate goal, the 105-mile Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc. 

    The Rise of the Ultra Runners is the electrifying, inspirational account of what he learned along the way. Through encounters with the sport's many colourful characters and his experiences of its soaring highs and crushing lows, Finn offers an unforgettable insight into what can be found at the boundaries of human endeavour.

    Ultra runner account

    As a person whom ran these races, I find it very very very very boring

    Well-written story but didn't love narration

    Reasonably well-written, for a professional journalist, but I couldn't past the author's meek, monotone voice. Added to the mispronunciation of Dan Ariely's name (not 'airily') and a couple of others I wasn't too sure of, all seemed to diminish the credibility of the storytelling. But one can't help but admire his effort in each race. Kudos 👍🏻

    Insightful and inspiring

    I really loved this book. It read like a story but was hugely insightful. Some of the content around injury and injury prevention I had encountered in other books but this brought presented it in a different, more tangible way. So much so that I have enrolled in the Gary Ward online course!
    The big take away from this and quite a few books/interviews/YouTube videos that I get is unless you are actually injured the battle is in the mind. Beside 'live in the moment' I have yet discovered how to build this mental fitness. My current limitations are far more modest at the half-marathon and a very slow plodding marathon but everybody has to find their own limit and we all need to start somewhere. That is the second thing I took from this highly enjoyable book.

    Well worth the read.

    Thanks for making me smile.

    A book that will inspire you

    I have listened to this book twice and I am sure I will listen to it again. On my long ultra trail races, I think of Finn and he motivates me to carry on. A great book, by a great writer.

    There are deeper books, but that's a very good summary of "all the feels" of an ultra runner

    Sometimes it feels a bit like listening to the summary of the actual book, as what from a perspective of an ultra lasts for an eternity, here is described over 30mins. Yet all the key elements are there to show why ultra running is not just running over mountains. If you've ever run a ultra, you'll find all the moments here where you'll laugh out loud, cringe at recollection of your own memories, or shed a tiny tear remembering that one finish.

    Well worth it to remind you why you've done all that ultra thing in the first place!

    FFF - First From Finn

    Absolutely compelling until the last chapter. Adharanand as he refers to himself lives the story and it feels like you get the opportunity to meet the author himself as he takes you through the struggles, defeats and triumphs in an epic listen for any person not only Ultramarathon fans.

    Mandatory Reading

    This is a must read for anyone who has ever laced up a pair of running shoes. But it should come with a warning that you will begin to look up what distance running events are going on in you area. l loved every moment of this book.

    some interesting stories

    I liked hearing about the different perspectives of many ultra-runners but I found the book overly focused on the author's own experience suffering through races. What I find so enjoyable and inspirational when hearing stories about ultra running is how much the runners love running - there is pain and exhaustion at times but that does not usually seem to be the focus. In this book the pain was a very important theme and it was depressing at times.
    Overall an ok audiobook, I don't regret buying it.
