Description - Epic Runs of the World by Lonely Planet

Put on your running shoes - it's time to hit the road, the trails and the great outdoors.

In this comprehensive runner's companion, you'll find 50 of the world's greatest running routes - from short city runs and must-do marathons to cross-country trails and challenging ultras - plus a further 150 courses around the globe to satisfy runners of all abilities.
