Running with Hillary Allen and Dean Karnazes!

Old Firehouse Books is excited to welcome runners and authors Hillary Allen and Dean Karnazes to our virtual event space to celebrate their new books, Out and Back and A Runner's High! They will be talking all things running, books, and books on running on Friday, May 7th at 6pm MT. The event will be streaming to the Old Firehouse Books Facebook page, and is free.

In 2017, world-class ultrarunner Hillary Allen was at the top of her sport--and it felt like she was running on top of the world as she competed in Norway's Tromsø Skyrace. Allen was nearly halfway through the 50-kilometer race when she fell 150 feet off an exposed ridge, fracturing her back and breaking multiple ribs, both feet, and both of her lower arms. Beginning with the dramatic story of her accident and rescue, Out and Back: A Runner's Story of Survival Against All Odds recounts Allen's fight to return to the life she loves.

New York Times bestselling author and ultramarathoning legend Dean Karnazes has pushed his body and mind to inconceivable limits, from running in the shoe melting heat of Death Valley to the lung freezing cold of the South Pole. He’s raced and competed across the globe and once ran 50 marathons, in 50 states, in 50 consecutive days. In A Runner’s High, Karnazes chronicles his extraordinary adventures leading up to his return to the Western States 100-Mile Endurance Run in his mid-fifties after first completing the race decades ago.

Books can be shipped anywhere within the United States (unfortunately, we cannot ship internationally).

Please email if you have any questions.

We look forward to seeing you at the event!
