Greg Wilson

Tales from an Ancient Marathoner
Featured Release

From a deprived childhood within a family history of mental illness, suicide and addictions, Greg Wilson has attained unexpected heights as an ultramarathoner.
Joining the Australian Army at seventeen was the catalyst for an athletics career. Within a few months, he was among the most accomplished distance runners in the Australian Defence Force.
This enthralling account documents Greg's inclusion in the winning team at the Olympic Marathon trials, competing in the ADF Orienteering team beyond the Arctic Circle, and completing the ?big lap' in three months as a member of the XXXX Australian Army Around Australia Relay Team.
He has raced in the company of the likes of the world's greatest ultra runner, Yiannis Kouros, and smashed the records set by septuagenarian legend Cliff Young.
His most recent event was to represent Australia in a
World Age Group Marathon Championship in Chicago, in a field of 49,000.
This is an inspiring account of overcoming adversity and being true to your talent.
