About the Author

Inspired by mountains and wilderness, Lizzy Hawker 'fell' into the world of ultra-distance and endurance running more by chance than by design. Endurance has always been a way of life for Lizzy, rather than a sport. But having the courage to take some unexpected opportunities opened doors, and her achievements snowballed both on the road and the trail. She is the world record holder for 24hrs and was the 2006 world champion in 100km on the road. She is also 4 time winner of The North Face Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc, and in 2011 set a new record running from Everest Base Camp to Kathmandu. Lizzy lives in Switzerland. Awards include: 2011 Female Athlete of the Year, The North Face, Fell Runners Association (UK) Long Distance Award 2008 and Road Runners Club (UK) John Jewell Award 2006 for outstanding performance by British Distance Runner.

"About what it means to be a runner, facing the highs and the lows, being full of doubt, but also determined. This book will inspire and enthuse you to move outside of your comfort zone and live life." * Get Ultrarunning *
"The astonishing Lizzy Hawker's story provides a much-needed female slant on the sport. Where this could have been an insufferable list of extremes endured, Hawker's generosity of spirit and faith in what running can do for one's soul makes it a rather moving tribute to what all of us might be capable of." * Independent on Sunday *
"She's held the world record for distance covered in 24 hours and is a five-time winner of the Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc. Runner follows her through that 100 mile race, breaking off to explore what driver her, and the physical, mental and emotional challenge of pushing the limits." * SPORT Magazine *
"Runneris beautifully written and as packed with pure inspiration (and possibility) as any book ever written on the subject, destined to become a classic of the genre." * RunningMonkey *
