In the summer of 2014 I ran around the Tour de Mont Blanc, the classic mountain tour in the heart of the Alps. Travelling over and through high passes, wide valleys and Alpine towns, this book describes the journey - its challenges, experiences and incredible mountain scenery.
Illustrated by paintings of some of the scenes I saw while running along, High Inspiration also explores the drive behind mountain running and racing, and of how simply being in the mountains has inspired climbers, writers, artists and innovators such as Nan Shepherd, Walter Bonatti, Andy Parkin and Katherine Mansfield.
High Inspiration will be published on the 27th June and I am taking pre-orders now. All pre-orders will be signed and will include a few extras - some postcards and bookmarks - as a thank-you. You can also order a signed print of my map of the Mont Blanc Massif, one of the illustrations in High Inspiration, alongside your book order for the special price of £25.
Pre-orders will be posted out as soon as we receive them, which should be early to mid-June.
More details about the book launch and other stuff will follow soon. I am very excited about this new book! :o)
