Scott Jurek, the author of Eat and Run, will discuss and sign his thrilling new memoir North: Finding My Way While Running the Appalachian Trail ($28.00 Little Brown and Company), about his grueling, exhilarating, and immensely inspiring 46-day run to break the speed record for the Appalachian Trail.
Scott Jurek is one of the world's best known and most beloved ultrarunners.
But after two decades of racing, training, speaking, and touring, Jurek felt an urgent need to discover something new about himself. He embarked on a wholly unique challenge, one that would force him to grow as a person and as an athlete: breaking the speed record for the Appalachian Trail. North is the story of the 2,189-mile journey that nearly shattered him.
A stunning narrative of perseverance and personal transformation, North is a portrait of a man stripped bare on the most demanding and transcendent effort of his life. It will inspire runners and non-runners alike to keep striving for their personal best.
Jurek will be joined by his wife Jenny Jurek.

"The wall" is often defined as that period in time during a marathon when things transition from being pretty hard to being really hard. It is the point where your mental and physical strength are tested simultaneously. Usually occurring around mile 20, as most training programs only train up to a 20 mile long run, many refer to it as the exact point where all your pre-race plans go out the window.
So, how do you complete the last leg of your race comfortably?
That’s where we come in. This year’s Breaking Through The Wall marathon preparation seminar will take place on Sunday, September 24th at 11 a.m. at the Second City UP Theatre in the Piper's Alley Mall. The seminar will feature a panel of elite runners and marathon experts who have received every question regarding marathon training in the book. This year’s panel includes Olympic marathoners Ryan Hall, Amy Cragg, and ultramarathoner and all around ultra-human athlete Scott Jurek. Topics include nutrition education, proper hydration, race course tips, recovery preparation, mental strategy, and more.
