What if running in beautiful places was paradoxically contributing to the destruction of those precious environments and causing irreversible global harm to people and animals, too?
In We Can’t Run Away from This, ultrarunner Damian Hall examines the impact of running in our climate and ecological emergency. Packed with insights from experts, it is an enlightening book that will prompt us all to really think about our kit, food, and travel and to identify simple changes we can make to our running and wider lives. But Damian also asks if concentrating on our individual footprints (pun unintended) is really the answer.
We can’t run away from this any more, and this book will give every runner ideas about how to live and exercise more sustainably.

Important topic but perhaps missing perspective
The climate crisis is real and we all need to do our part. Damian’s book shines a cleansing ray of sunlight on running’s part in the unfolding disaster, and the book makes you feel it is significant. But a sense of proportion is possibly lacking or at least, not fully explored. It is nevertheless a good and thoroughly researched book. A PDF of references and links would be a welcome addition though.
Great book that links lots of sensible thinking
Damian has put together a text that has been thoroughly researched & is the better for it. Without getting too technical he goes after the answers to easy questions about what is bad for the planet in the world of runners. The conclusion is great & whilst the content will always change (as things get less bad) he has NAILED it as a text. When you are dealing with so much information it is too easy to believe the 'facts' as offered, as opposed to being able to cross-check some of the claims that stakeholders make. To add to this is a narration that should have been better: merino/ Chouinard/ ISPO have different pronunciations in my world...

If you only listen to one book….
…make it this one. It’s an honest attempt to explain running’s environmental impact, and what we as individuals can do to tackle the issue—and more importantly, that the greatest change needs to come from government and large corporations. It isn’t happy cheerful listening, that’s for sure, even allowing for the terrible Dad jokes. But if you want to make a difference and have no idea where to start, start by listening to this book.
