The Most Distant Way (Paperback)

Ewan Gault


Two young British distance runners, Kirsten and Mike, are training in Kenya's Rift Valley, an area with the greatest density of elite endurance runners on earth. With only a week remaining of their three month stay, they each have to face up to their fears about going home whilst trying to make sense of their lives. Meanwhile, the country around them is beginning to tear itself apart, as an election, which will plunge Kenya into weeks of bloodshed, approaches. During their final days in The Rift Valley, Kirsten becomes involved in the plight of a street child who she believes has been killed at a political rally, while Mike's dedication to running becomes an obsession with unlocking the secret behind Kenyan running excellence. Ewan Gault explores the distances between aspiration and reality, purpose and meaning and, above all, the distance between people.
