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. Each run is accompanied by stunning photos and a map and toolkit of practical details - where to start and finish, how to get there, where to stay and more - to help you plan the perfect trip. Suggestions for similar runs around the world are also included. Organised by continent, Lonely Planet`s Epic Runs of the World takes runners past giraffes, zebras and rhinos in Africa, along courses the length of Vancouver`s Stanley Park Seawall in the Americas, offers spectacular views of Hong Kong from Victoria Peak in Asia and jogs along Rome`s Tiber River in Europe, while inviting athletes to push themselves to the limit in Oceania`s Blue Mountains Ultra.
