Runners will be inspired and fascinated reading about Mark Covert who has run every day for 45 straight years, how Pam Reed won the Badwater Ultramarathon, and Dean Karnazes ran 50 marathons in fifty states over 50 days, how Larry Macon set four world records for the most marathons in a calendar year, and Amy Winters-Palmiero ran and finished Badwater with a prosthetic leg. Each one of these athletes has pushed the limits of human endurance to become an inspiration for people around the world. Their achievements are profiled in individual chapters, each introduced by prominent ultrarunners and friends.

Scott Ludwig lives, runs and writes in the beautiful countryside of Senoia, Georgia with his wife Cindy and their menagerie of cats. Scott enlisted the aid of several of his friends and fellow runners to compile the stories in Running to Extremes, arguably the best collection of stories about endurance athletes ever published. The 15 people portrayed in this book are sure to leave readers with their eyes and mouths wide open, completely fascinated with what the subjects have been able to accomplish in the sport of endurance running.
