“Extreme Running is beautiful. From the top of the world to the bottom, it captures the “extremes” in foot races- from the hottest to the coldest, the wettest to the driest, the highest to the lowest. In addition, authors Kym McConnell and Dave Horsley capture the human spirit through the athletes’ experiences.”

“If you are a runner, adventure racer, ultrarunner, or interested in extreme events, this book is for you. I love this book. The book does a great job of showing you popular events and enough information. I have been to several of them and can attest to the descriptions as accurate.”
John Vonhof
Author of Fixing Your Feet: Prevention and Treatments for Athletes
“The authors, experienced ultra-runners themselves, have selected 24 extreme events on all seven continents, and the comprehensive route information, maps and contact details, plus sumptuous photography, make for an impressive package.”

“I congratulate Kym McConnell and Dave Horsley on completing their own 7 Extreme Marathons on 7 Continents challenge and for producing this excellent reference book.
The book superbly captures the essence of running in extremes and I am sure it will inspire many others to tackle similar goals.”
