Book launches: ‘Running Hard’
I will be holding two book launches for ‘Running Hard: the story of a rivalry’, after it is published on Thursday 16 February.
Firstly, I will be at the Greta Suite, Skiddaw Hotel, Keswick (NOT the Moot Hall now, if you saw earlier notifications) at 3-30pm on Saturday 18 February, with both of the main characters from the book in attendance, plus other fell legends. I will be sharing some stories about these two outstanding athletes. Copies of the book will be available (signed if required), as will both my earlier books, ‘It’s a hill, get over it’ and the updated paperback of ‘The Round: in Bob Graham’s footsteps’. This is a ticketed event, and tickets can be obtained from Bookends bookshop in Keswick, or by email from me (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Second, will be an event in the Boardroom at Middlesex University at 6pm on Monday 20 February. There will be more stories about Kenny Stuart and John Wild (who will be there), and copies of all my books available. There will be drinks at the launch, and an after-party in The Greyhound, round the corner. Drop me a line if you would like to be there – or just rock up.
Having read the manuscript, Steve Jones (former holder of World Best time for marathon) wrote:
Read of their courage, mental toughness and strategies in a modern, but almost Boys Own, battle and decide for yourself who is Wilson of the Wizard and who the Tough of the Track.
