Run Your Way Around the World!

Lace-up your running shoes and race out to grab a copy of Lonely Planet’s new Epic Runs of the World. This beautifully illustrated hardcover book is the fourth instalment in Lonely Planet’s best-selling Epic series (following Epic Bike Rides of the World [2016], Epic Drives of the World [2017], and Epic Hikes of the World [2018]).

Epic Runs of the World showcases 50 incredible routes in 28 countries, from Kenya to Canada, plus a further 150 suggestions. Australia is represented by six runs highlighted in the chapters The Great Ocean Road Marathon, Melbourne’s Must-Do Park Run, The Ormiston Gorge Pound Loop, Sydney’s Spectacular Seafront, Ultra-Trail Australia and Tasmania’s Freycinet Peninsula.

Featuring everything from short city runs and cross-country trails to must-do marathons and long-distance ultras, each experience is defined by being truly epic – whatever your fitness level.

“Running now has a surprisingly symbiotic relationship with travel itself,” Lonely Planet says. “Experienced vagabonds insist it cures jetlag, while running seems to be the one exercise we actually do when travelling, whether for a short business trip or during an around-the-world adventure.”

Lonely Planet adds that “the 50 featured runs are first-hand accounts, written by people who are not only passionate about running – some even do it for a living – but also about the idea that to have run somewhere is to know it. These are stories that will convince you there are times when a run is the way to see a place.”
