Running Wild, the first book by the editors of Like the Wind magazine, presents 16 of the finest trail-running locations around the world, with trails for both novice and experienced runners. From the heights of the Alps to the snowy expanses of the Arctic, to the jungles of Latin America and the outback Down Under, each journey is brought to life by a different trail runner, showcasing through words and stunning photography what makes each destination so spectacular, as well as providing practical information to keep you moving on the ground.
With this book, we wanted to demonstrate, in the traditional Like the Wind storytelling ethos of ‘Why we Run’, that the opportunities for adventure are endless. We have picked a wide variety of routes that stretch over mountains, forests and deserts, in hot climates and frigid ones, through some of the most untamed and beautiful places on Earth. You’ll discover those places through the lens of our 16 local guides, who each run you through their favourite routes.
“Whether you’ve run great distances on a trail, modest distances, or are just starting out, Running Wild is sure to captivate your spirit the way it did mine. Enjoy this magnificent work of artistry; let it awaken your emotions. Then, please, find a trail and get lost …” – Dean Karnazes
