For far too many people nowadays, ‘ultra-running’ constitutes no more than a dash for the bus, but as Adharanand Finn discovers in The Rise of the Ultra Runners, you’re likely to happen upon the sport’s single-minded cohort practicing somewhere in the Arabian desert or atop a snow-capped mountain range rather than on the high street. Finn sets himself an ultra-running target: to complete the Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc (UTMB), a 105-mile race around Mont Blanc, the route of which ascends 34,000ft (10,300m) and passes through three different countries.
