The Runners Code: The Unwritten Rules of Everyday Running by Chas Newkey-Burden

The Runner's Code

The Runner’s Code explores the unwritten rules of everyday running and is essential reading for anyone who marvels at marathons, tears round the track or simply plods round the park.

Filled with smart advice and brilliantly knowing humour, this unique celebration of running takes the newbie and veteran alike through the secret, nuanced and blindingly obvious rules of running to answer all the important questions, such as:

– What’s the correct etiquette for acknowledging other runners?
– What should you do if you get ‘caught short’ on a run?
– And exactly how many times can you ask colleagues for marathon sponsorship?

Features contributions from: Anna McNuff, Paul Tonkinson, Tazneem Anwar, Louise Minchin, Nicky Campbell, Martin and Liz Yelling, Helen Croydon and many others.

Narrated by Elliot Chapman.
