Interest Level: Grades 5 & Up
Quinn is engaged in the ultimate challenge with himself – running the brutal Shin-Kicker, a race that covers 100 miles in 24 hours. He is determined not to DNF. Vomit, bears, hallucinations – why would anyone want to do this to themselves? Some people run to get into shape, others are running away from something, Quinn is doing both.
