Bannister and Beyond: The Mystique of the Four-Minute Mile Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hundreds of milers have now gone sub-4—but the achievement is still extraordinary, and the four-minute mile stands as a measure of greatness. This book contains commentary from the great milers: from Bannister’s great rival, John Landy, and Derek Ibbotson, to the stars of each succeeding decade (Snell, Elliott, Bowden, Ryun, Walker, Coghlan, Scott, Coe, Cram, Ngeny, and more), all of them discussing the mile—its magic, rhythms, tactics, training, and above all, what it means to run sub-4.

This is an important piece of track history, and a book to inspire all runners.

Now available in paperback.

Synopsis:

Interviews with the great runners who pioneered the sub-4 mile.
