"The Ghost Runner," John Tarrant, the extraordinary man whom nobody could stop. As a hapless teenage boxer in the 1950's, he'd been paid £17 in expenses. When he turned to distance running, he found himself banned for life. His amateur status had been compromised forever. Now he was fighting back, gate-crashing races all over Britain. No number on his shirt. No friends in high places. Soon he would be a record-breaker, one of the greatest long distance runners the world had ever seen.
