RENT FOR 48 HOURS: Having achieved her goal of becoming the first woman and youngest person at the time to complete the Four Desert Grandslam, four 250km desert ultramarathons in a single year, Samantha Gash didn’t want to stop running – but she did want to run with more of a purpose. So she teamed up with World Vision to run across India and shine a light on the plight of Indian girls and their quest for equality and education. For 77 days she ran in the heat, the crowds and the dust. She dodged cars, busses, bikes, cows and the odd camel. Run India takes us along for the ride and it is a brutally honest raw account of her ups and downs along the way.
