‘Running with Karnazes is like setting up one’s easel next to Monet or Picasso.’ The New York Times

In his follow-up to the bestselling Ultramarathon Man, Dean Karnazes is back with more mind-blowing tales of how he pushes his mind and body to limits which are inconceivable to most of us.

In Run! Dean shares the pleasure – and considerable pain – of some of his most memorable adventures, including:

– a gentle 350-mile canter through the surprisingly hilly Australian Outback;
– his annual attempts at the Badwater Ultramarathon in Death Valley, California (typical temperature: 45 degrees); and
– the notorious 4 Deserts races, a masochist’s delight encompassing four separate 155-mile runs across the Atacama Crossing, the Gobi, the Sahara and Antarctica…with rationed water.

Dean’s entertaining and endearing stories are sure to inspire both dedicated and vicarious runners alike.
