About this item

Running The Smoke tells the story of what it’s like to take part in this race in the most enlightening and enriching way possible: from the perspectives of twenty-six different people who have participated in it since its inception in 1981. Inspirational stories from Sir Steve Redgrave and Michael Lynagh sit alongside the story of a man of 70+ who has run every London marathon, a woman has beaten cervical cancer twice, a military figure badly injured in the course of his work, a homeless man who survived the Rwandan Genocide, a car crash victim who battled back to health within a year to be at the start line, and many other heartwarming stories. Candid and inspiring if you are preparing for your first marathon or your 100th, Running The Smoke will give you the encouragement, insight and belief you need to cross that line.
