Photographer David Clifford has captured the world's most dogged runners doing what they love in the most remote and unforgiving environments.
The birthplace of one of the world's more brutal sports has a few naysayers but we selected it largely on the basis of the eloquence of one of them.
"Even the Romans had the foresight to build their Watling Street straight past the place," says Kev-in-Corfu.
"Years later navvies built a canal so you could float past it. Then they built not one, but two, mainline railways so you could hurtle around it. Eventually, when every family could afford a car, the first and much commended strategy of the Department of Transport was to ensure the M1, M6 and M45 could take the population of Britain past the place rather than to it."
One-sided? You bet. So, Rugby fans (game or market town), speak up!

This is so wrong. Canada is not only beautiful and cultural, we have many amusements for children as well as adults. Toronto Vancouver Montreal and Ottawa. Ottawa has Winterlude and the longest skating rink in the world. At Winterlude you will also see ice sculptures, Jacques Cartier Park in Gatineau just across the river offers fun for the whole family. We have Niagara Falls with so much history there and lots of amusements for the kids including hotels with water parks inside. Rocky Mountains wow; take the train through the Rockies and you will see sheer beauty. Quebec City is full of culture and history and is fun for kids. Look for an outdoor oven that bakes homemade bread and maple butter artists row etc. etc. The Maritimes are exciting and very family oriented so you would find things to do.
Our country is wondeerful and I am so happy I grew up in this country with all the culture and history from coast to coast
