In 2005, during a four-month cycling trip through Africa, Martin Parnell was struck by the transformative and positive power of sport to change lives. Five years later the 55 year-old dedicated a year of his lifeto run 250 marathons with the aim of raising $250,000 for the charity Right To Play, an international humanitarian organization that reaches out to disadvantaged children around the world.

Along with information on technique, gear, nutrition and the challenges facing new and seasoned athletes as they prepare for either regularor ultramarathons, Martin gives honest and often humorous insight into why an ordinary person would attempt to do something extraordinary in pursuit of their goal to make the world a better place.
