Photographer David Clifford has captured the world's most dogged runners doing what they love in the most remote and unforgiving environments.
Manafaru beach, Maldives
This is the cliched simple life we all dream of – brilliant blue skies, soft white sand and warm lagoons to laze in. Even with our extensive (more like obsessive) beach-hopping, we still can't deny the feeling we get when landing on the main island, Malé, and being whisked away, via private seaplane, to this sandy speck, barely rising above the immense Indian Ocean. Not many places do horizontal holidaying quite like Manafaru; with only one resort on the island it's laid-back luxe at its best.
