Running Journey Accounts

The Winning Experience by Richard Brown, Institute of Human Development, 1996

In May 1995 Richard Brown regained the record for running from Land’s End to John O’Groats, in a time of 10 days 2 hours and 25 minutes, breaking the record by over 13 hours.  At the same time his wife Sandra was reducing the ladies record by nearly 8 hours.  This book is intended as a motivational “how to win in life” text, using the run as an example.  Fortunately it is quite easy to separate his readable account of the organisation and experience of the trip from the rest.  Recommended.

So Many Miles for Mary by Philip David, Merton Priory Press, 2003

An account of a 2300-mile run around Britain to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Nurses.
