Marathons: Spectacular Courses Around the World (Paperback)
We will contact you when this item is next available to order.
Run and see Of course there are more than 50 marathons each year around the world. But there are outstanding ones and more outstanding ones. The 50 most interesting, beautiful and unique ones are combined here in this title. All you need to know is there: When do they start, how to register, how to be fit for the events, what is to be seen while running. There is for example the Kilimanjaro Marathon, should you have enough air for this height, or the Great Wall Marathon, where you only run across the big walls around Beijing. You like it more exotic? Then join the Flying Tortoise on the Galapagos Islands. The hottest or coldest place to run your 42 km and some more meters, the most difficult and the most spectacular from the point of view of a runner and sightseer here they are. And all the 50 marathons will be rated by their level of difficulty. Impressive photographs catch the atmosphere and the one-of-a-kind sceneries of each running "event". With helpful hints what to do once you're there, what to see and how to react and make the best of it should you fail to finish "your" marathon. AUTHOR: Urs Weber has been working as an editor at Runner's World, the biggest specialist running magazine, for over ten years, combining his hobby and his work as he has been an enthusiastic runner since childhood. He has taken part in marathons for over twenty-five years, at least once a year but usually several times a year. Besides the big cities, he also tries to choose marathons in places he has never visited, such as the Himalayas, the South Pacific or the Arctic Circle. There he takes part either as a runner taking photographs or as a photographer who is running. As a result he has taken part in numerous marathons throughout the world, both as a journalist and runner. SELLING POINTS: . All important marathons from Sydney and Beijing to New York presented by marathon specialist Ulrich Pramann . Info about registering and characteristics of each marathon . With sightseeing tips once you're "there" Colour photographs
