IN SEARCH OF AL HOWIE
The story of Al Howie is a remarkable and at times unbelievable adventure into the heart of the longest races in the world with one of modern history’s most eccentric ultra-marathon runners.
"An energetic work that chases the legend and captures the life story of premier Canadian extreme-distance runner Al Howie...
the pages fly by, like the miles beneath Howie’s feet."
