Have you ever considered how reading can complement your training? There are the books that help you relax and unwind, perfect for getting lost in a day of recovery. Or there are the ones that help you build mental fortitude, teach you about grit and overcoming obstacles, and sit in the back of your mind when you’re in the hard miles of the race. And then there are the books that connect you to inspirational people and provide insight into how they have accomplished so much.

Well, we want to read all those books. With you. 

Which is why we started the Women’s Running Book Club, open to Active Pass and Women’s Running Pass Members. By signing up for the club you’ll get access to:

  • A live webinar where the author will answer questions from the audience.
  • A recording of the author webinar to watch later if you miss the live one.
  • Access to our private Facebook group to connect with other bookworms. 
  • An opportunity to win some free books. 

Spring 2021 Book Club: Out and Back

Our next book club pick is ultrarunner Hillary Allen’s new book Out and Back: A Runner’s Story of Survival Against All Odds. In her new memoir, The North Face athlete shares her heroic journey back to running after falling 150 feet off a ridge-line during a skyrace in 2017. You might be familiar with her accident, but now Allen is sharing all of the mental toughness and perseverance it took to return to elite level racing. 

Join us on May 6, 7 pm ET, for a conversation and Q&A with Allen. The first ten new sign-ups will win a free book. Otherwise, order the book here.

Please note: We will be emailing a link to the webinar closer to the event date.
