Christopher McDougall is one of America’s most popular adventure-sport writers, with more than 2 million books in print. He began his career as a foreign correspondent for The Associated Press, covering wars in Rwanda, Angola, and Congo. His first book, Born to Run, remains the No. 1 running title of all time, spending four years on the New York Times bestseller list and earning selection as one of Amazon’s 100 Books to Read in a Lifetime. McDougall’s work revolutionized footwear and sports nutrition, sparking the “Barefoot Revolution” of minimalist shoes and popularizing chia seeds and pinole, two superfoods of Mexico’s legendary Rarámuri ultrarunners.
Eric Orton has spent a lifetime exploring human potential and the limitless possibilities of the body and mind. As a performance guru and world-renowned running coach, Eric performs online coaching and consulting for both age group and elite runners. His study of ancestral cultures, like Mexico’s legendary Rarámuri ultrarunners, has made him one of America’s foremost authorities on natural movement and evolutionary biomechanics. Eric was the architect of the training plans which cured Christopher McDougall’s chronic injuries and prepared him for the epic adventures described in McDougall’s books. Together, McDougall and Orton created the “Free Seven,” the unique approach to running at the heart of Born to Run 2: the Ultimate Training Guide.
