L'uomo che corre

The Running Man

by Andrea Zambelli

An unusual athlete for an unusual challenge: the longest footrace ever run in Europe, a 1000 mile race around the abandoned track of an airport. Sixteen days of running, ten hours a day, short breaks to eat and sleep. All in the search for answers to questions that go beyond the olympic passion: how long can a man run without stopping? Is there a limit to the kind of challenge that one can take just to see if it is actually possible? What happens to the human body and mind when the physical effort becomes so extreme?
