The World’s Toughest Races
by Ali Clarke
What do canal jumping, swimming among sharks and running 251 kiometres in the Sahara Desert have in common? They’re some of the wackiest, toughest and most extreme manpower races and challenges ever dreamt up.
This fact-packed miscellany is bursting with all the details, statistics and anecdotes of the world’s most unusual competitions (bog snorkelling, anyone?) and intense endurance contests (fancy a Death Race?).
Whether you’re an armchair thrillseeker or determined to push your limit, this book will entertain and inspire.
This is the story of one young woman’s heroic journey to survive, escape and soar above her shocking childhood experiences, and her powerful struggle for freedom and a beautiful life in Australia.
