Rob Hadgraft Book and Novel

Rob Hadgraft - Author


Rob Hadgraft became interested in running after he and a group of fellow newspaper sub-editors ran a 26-mile private marathon across rural Suffolk, to raise funds for a local cause.

That was nearly 30 years ago. Hadgraft is now approaching 800 races on road, country and track. Born in 1955 and based in Essex, he rarely troubles the elite performers near the front of the pack these days.

This is Hadgraft’s fourth athletics history, following acclaimed biographies of Alf Shrubb, Walter George and ‘Deerfoot’. He has also had eight football titles published by Desert Island Books.
