NORTH: Finding My Way While Running the Appalachian Trail is the thrilling and inspiring memoir of Scott and his wife Jenny’s experience taking on – and conquering – the Appalachian Trail.  In NORTH, The Jureks recount their 2015 journey to discover something new about themselves and their marriage through a wholly unique challenge: breaking the speed record for the 2,189-mile Appalachian Trail. Underprepared from the outset, Scott ran, hiked and stumbled his way north for 50 miles/day for 46 days, assisted by his wife, Jenny. And though he was nearly outmatched by the elements, he miraculously managed to succeed.  Filled with unique insights into running, as well as fascinating facts about the people, places, and history of the Appalachian Trail,NORTH will delight runners and non-runners alike, inspiring all readers to keep striving for their personal best.


Scott Jurek is one of the greatest runners of all time.  He has claimed victories in nearly all of ultrarunning’s elite trail and road events including the historic 153-mile Spartathlon, the Hardrock 100, the Badwater 135-Mile Ultramarathon, and the Western States 100-Mile Endurance Run.  Jurek was featured prominently in Born to Run and The 4-Hour Body, and is the New York Times bestselling author of Eat and Run.
