About the Author

Damian Hall is a parent, accidental activist and record-breaking ultrarunner who has represented Great Britain and competed in some of the world’s toughest races. His attempt to break into the top ten at the 105-mile Ultra-Trail du Mont Blanc was made into an award-winning film, Underdog; and the documentary Totally FKT followed him and John Kelly as they raced to break the Pennine Way record in 2020. Damian has also set records on the Paddy Buckley Round, the South West Coast Path, the Cape Wrath Trail, and Wainwright’s Coast to Coast. He is a UK Athletics running coach and a widely published journalist who has made regular contributions to Runner’s World, Women’s Running and Trail Running. His previous books include In It for the Long Run, A Year on the Run and the official National Trail guide to the Pennine Way. He is a founding member of The Green Runners (thegreenrunners.com), a community of runners working towards a fitter planet. He is a big fan of midlife-crisis haircuts and tea.

Reviews

‘Gut-wrenchingly serious but also cleverly light-hearted. It’s impossible to read this book and not make changes to your life.’ – Beth Pascall

‘Damian has done diligent research and used his own life as a test case to show practical ways we can contribute to a better future, while still enjoying (most of) the things we love. Any runner should take the time to learn the information shared in this book.’ – John Kelly

'People like Damian are showing all of us, with actions and wisdom, how we can better understand the complexity of climate change and other environmental problems, and how to go one step further by thinking about what we can do, as runners, to help.' – Kilian Jornet
