Published to coincide with sporting legend Haile Gebrselassie running in the 2002 London Marathon, Alastair Aitken's latest collection, Athletics Enigmas, brings together the extremes of the athletics world: those star professionals whose names are familiar to us all and the ordinary club runners who are largely unsung. The book examines the worlds of track and field athletics, cross-country running, veteran and ultra-distance running.

About the author:
Alastair Aitken has extensive personal experience as a marathon runner. He ran the first 19 London Marathons and has been an accredited journalist at many major athletics meetings. He currently writes for Athletics Weekly.
