Some of Dean’s bestselling books. The book that started it all – Ultra Marathon Man. In The Road To Sparta Dean honours the achievement of Pheidippides who in 490 BCE ran from Athens to Sparta. Extra special because of Dean’s Greek heritage, he also runs the Spartathlon, fuelled only by the figs, olives and meats available to Pheidippides.
