Fictional Ultra Marathon Books

Fiction uses human themes to tell stories that convey deep meaning. Suffering, companionship, achievement, victory, sensation, adventure: they’re all represented in fictional stories. And they’re literally represented in ultrarunning; dive into these fictional stories to immerse yourself in the human condition and evolve through your relation to the characters. Use your imagination to pull yourself into another place, time, or world. Don’t forget to bring something back with you.

Inspiring Athlete Stories

Ultra marathon runners truly are modern day gladiators. They enter dark and painful arenas to do battle with some frightful enemy: forests and mountains and unending loops of pavement or gravel carry the sounds of their battles. Men and women, influential for their candid testimonies about the power of entering the pain cave, who set the example of living a life fulfilled, of pursuing dreams, and of settling for nothing but YOUR best. These are their stories.

Ultra Marathon Books about Training

Running an ultra marathon is a massive undertaking. Simplicity is essential, especially for first-timers, but learning from those who have accomplished that which you seek (and more) can have a monumental impact on your approach and mindset. Level up your endurance training with these books.

Non Fiction Ultra Marathon Books

Non-fiction stories of adventure, suffering, and perseverance are the original ultra marathons. Men and women facing danger, insurmountable odds, or grand adventure paved the way for common people to strive for greatness. The question “What am I capable of?” is born of these stories and adventures. Here’s some we recommend.
