Welcome to Doug Richards' Running Website

June 2023 sees the publication of the third (and final) book of my worldwide running adventures, Once Around The Planet.

Who would have thought that when I set out on my first one mile run back in 1981, that I would end up with enough material to fill three books – certainly not me. Having been assiduous from the very beginning with my record-keeping, I now know that I have completed a complete circumnavigation of our world in my running shoes!

Yes, the years are creeping up on me, but I’m not done yet. Hopefully, by sharing my adventures through these books, I will ignite the thrill-seeking gene within many of my readers, and inspire you to take on some of the awesome running challenges that our wonderful planet has to offer.
