GRAND TRAIL is the first “fine book” of photographs and texts devoted to trail-running. This is a sensitive book, directed by brothers who started a trip in 2015 to meet the most beautiful ultras in the world (including 12 races of the Ultra-Trail World Tour). It is also a book of powerful stories, portraying great champions of this sport (François d’Haene, Scott Jurek, Anna Frost, Anton Krupicka, Ryan Sandes, Kilian Jornet, Iker Karrera, Dawa Sherpa, Gediminas Grinius…).

In Grand Trail, Alexis and Frédéric Berg have done a wonderful job at portraying a variety of races from around the world, offering an intimate look into the emotion underlying each event. They also profile an eclectic cast of runners who have made an indelible mark on the sport and continue to progress the discipline to this day. Through stunning imagery and well crafted narratives, they have masterfully depicted the essence of trail running defined by people and places.
