Have you ever wanted to run with the Kenyans? Would you like to stride along the same Albuquerque trails that made Paula Radcliffe a world beater? Have you ever fancied racing at 2,400 m of altitude? Is spending three weeks running in the Alps your idea of a perfect holiday? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then this book is for you. It features 15 of the world’s most popular altitude training destinations, and provides useful travel information for athletes of all levels. This first-of-its-kind guide is packed with practical advice, spectacular photographs, interesting features, and light-hearted blog excerpts detailing the author’s own experiences and observations.
