Dean Karnazes to run 2 Parks Run plus book signing

On Wednesday 19th April, we are excited to be hosting Dean Karnazes who will be joining our club for the 2 Parks run and providing a short talk about his new book entitled ‘The Road to Sparta’.

In the book, Dean honours Pheidippides by recreating his ancient journey from Athens to Sparta.

For those who may not be familiar with Dean, he was named by TIME magazine as one of the "Top 100 Most Influential People in the World" and Men's Fitness hailed him as one of the fittest men on the planet. He is an internationally recognised endurance athlete and NY Times bestselling author.

Copies of his new book ‘The Road to Sparta’ in addition to his best-seller ‘Ultramarathon Man’ will be available on the evening. It will be a cash only event, so please bring along your change!

It would be fantastic if a large group of us could run with Dean on the 2 Parks route. What better way to taper if you are running the London Marathon!

If you are interested in joining us for the 2 Parks run and the talk in Studio 1 at the Seymour Centre afterwards, please register your interest on the Race and Event planner so that we have a good idea of numbers. Due to restricted space at the Seymour Centre, priority will be given to people who have signed up on the planner.

If you have any questions, please contact Catharine at
