Grand Trail

Grand Trail by brothers Alexis and Frédéric is a worship-inspiring coffee table-worthy tome of

  • 16 [famous] ultrarunner portraits (Killian Jornet, Anton Krupicka, Scott Jurek, Anna Frost to name a few)
  • 13 [also noteworthy] trail races portraits (from the more widely known like Western States and Hardrock 100 to ones new to me like Ultra-Trail Mt. Fuji and Lavaredo Ultra)
  • 16 meta chapters including ultrarunner profiling, trail racing history, ultra physiology and race conditions
  • and a list of 150 ultras by country (along with elevation gains)

Every mile relayed through wonderful essays and 100s of gorgeous photographs with storytelling captions.

Sarah Lavendar Smith recommended this book in her 2016 Gift Guide for Trail Runners. Another winner just like Nowhere Near First.  Thank you Sarah!
