Don’t take our word, see our testimonials

Possibly the best self-development and performance book I have ever read. A must-read not just for the Marathon Des Sables, but for any endurance event.

‘Not even finished Running Light by Craig Williams yet, but I am already recommending I, not just to my running friends, but everyone that is caught in a rut and in need of motivation, determination and a whole new outlook on life, not just ultrarunning.’

About Craig Williams

The horrible moment when you realise you are woefully underprepared for the toughest challenge of your life!!!

A word from your author.

I remember it clearly… I was getting picked up by my wife after I bonked during the last-ditch training run 3 weeks before the Marathon Des Sables started. For once in my life, I knew my physical ability was not going to get me through…

Running Light exposes all the mindset and last-minute hacks I employed to not only get through the race but also finish in the top 20% of all runners.

I will help you make difficult decisions about food, kit, weight and training super easy, help you create the optimum race strategy for you AND have a few laughs (usually at my expense…) along the way.

Thank you for taking the time to read buy and read my book and I look forward to hearing your feedback.
