Local Ultra Athlete launches his own Book


“Unstoppable! Mike Inkster's Story”

I am not sure if many of you realise, but we have a major celebrity from the ultra marathon arena on our doorstep.  His name is Mike Inkster and through his business Challenge Hub, has staged major ultra marathons/expeditions across the globe as well as in East Kent.  Those held in our region include the Moonlight Challenge, 24 hour and 50 mile challenges that many Thanet roadrunners have taken part in.  If you are looking to try any of these ultra marathons, you should go to the Challenge Hub website: 


Well a local writer called Peter Ewance has put his life to verse and has published a book on Amazon. The book is called “Unstoppable! Mike Inkster's Story" .  It tells the story of Mike’s colourful life and accounts for his successes and failures.  Read about his first ultra run - 180 miles around Kent in just 36 hours - thirty years ago!  Or how, as a teenager, he got caught up in the Colonels' Coup in Greece . . . launched three separate city marathons in one year . . . what happened to him when his army bomb disposal training was put to the test.


Unstoppable! Mike Inkster's Story [Kindle Edition] is available on Amazon at £4.59 and should be a really good read!   If you are reading this article electronically, please click on the following link:  If you don't have a "Kindle", you can download the software for FREE on Amazon so you can read "Unstoppable!" on your PC, Mac, ipad or Smartphone.

Thanks to Ian Lockyer for penning this, and we'll no doubt have some of our number at Mike's events once again before too long!
