In the Long Run - George Stratford FREE ON AMAZON (September 12-14, 2012)
IT'S NOT JUST THE RACE THAT CAN KILL YOU
Against the backdrop of one of the world’s most demanding races, four men must fight their personal battles for survival.
THE RACE: South Africa’s awesome Comrades Marathon – fifty-five miles of physical torture run over a series of massive hills in stamina destroying heat and humidity.
THE MEN: an idealistic British marathon runner duped into assisting with a murderous plan; a world famous American entertainer who unknowingly puts far more than just his career on the line; a Zulu youth with outstanding natural athletic ability but an unknown enemy; and the dissolute son of a wealthy Johannesburg stockbroker competing in a desperate attempt to preserve his inheritance. Some of these will learn harsh lessons. Some will pay a far heavier price.
None will ever forget.
“A gripping tale from start to finish.”
Steve Cram: Six times a gold medallist at Commonwealth, European and World Championships, also Olympic silver medallist and world record holder for the mile 1985 - 1993.
