Product Description

About the Author

Martin Parnell emigrated to Canada from England in 1977. At the age of 47, he started running and has since completed numerous marathons, triathlons and ultra-marathons. Since wrapping up “Marathon Quest 250” in 2010, Martin completed “Netball Quest 61,” setting a Guinness World Record for the longest marathon playing netball (61 hours), raising $22,600 for Right to Play and helping 452 children. For 2012, he will be attempting “Lacrosse Quest 24” (a Guinness World Record attempt at 24 hours of marathon lacrosse playing); “Cook Island Quest 100” (a 100 km ultra-marathon around Rarotonga Island) and “Soccer Quest 42” (a Guinness World Record attempt at 42 hours of continuous soccer playing). In total, Martin’s “Quest for Kids” (2010–2014) is expected to include 10 “Quests,” raising $1,000,000 for Right to Play and helping 20,000 children. Martin lives in Cochrane, Alberta, with his wife, Sue. They have three children and two grandchildren.

Format: Paperback
This is an inspiring book for those who are already runners or thinking about running. Parnell explains what inspired him to start running and how his practice turned into an international quest to help children around the world through sports. Lots of information in the book on getting started, the highs and lows of training and what it takes to push forward. A good read for adults and an inspiring one for teenagers, too.
