Born to Run

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


The astonishing national bestseller and hugely entertaining story that completely changed the way we run.

An epic adventure that began with one simple question: Why does my foot hurt?
Isolated by Mexico's deadly Copper Canyons, the blissful Tarahumara Indians have honed the ability to run hundreds of miles without rest or injury. In a riveting narrative, award-winning journalist and often-injured runner Christopher McDougall sets out to discover their secrets. In the process, he takes his readers from science labs at Harvard to the sun-baked valleys and freezing peaks across North America, where ever-growing numbers of ultra-runners are pushing their bodies to the limit, and, finally, to a climactic race in the Copper Canyons that pits America’s best ultra-runners against the tribe. McDougall’s incredible story will not only engage your mind but inspire your body when you realize that you, indeed all of us, were born to run.

Customer Reviews


This is more then a feel good book about running. It educates and informs. I'm a better athlete for reading this.

Whether you run or not, buy this book.

I just finished this book, and found it to be extremely motivational and inspirational. I have been taking a more serious stance on nutrition and excersize lately, and this just really sealed the deal on how amazing running is, and why I return home with a smile on my face when returning from a run that really beat the hell out of me. Losing weight and getting in shape can be so enjoyable if you let it, this book really drives home how amazing running is.

Must read - fellow runner and Pennsylvanian

I've just finished reading and I do believe it's the best book I've read .
If you are any type of runner, jogger, philosopher, nutritionist, naturalist, anthropologist, historian, etc this is a must read. Just fantastically informative and thrilling!
