The Clock Keeps Ticking is an autobigraphy written by UK ultradistance runner Sharon Gayter.


Sharon Gayter is one of the world’s top ultra distance runners. On 15th September 2006, Sharon Gayter’s long standing dream to break the Guinness World Record by running from Land’s End to John O’Groats came true; 837 miles in a blistering 12 days, 16 hours and 22 minutes and 3 seconds. In 2009, Sharon ran 140 miles (226km) to win the Commonwealth Championships gold medal. Only three women in the world ran better that year.

When a friend gave her a first pair of running shoes, she could barely stagger half a mile without collapsing exhausted. But Sharon Gayter was driven to run, running gave her freedom, to discover who she was and to make her own life on her own terms with spectacular success. She describes living life to the full, by setting and achieving goals, from a bus driver to a university lecturer, from barely running a mile without collapsing exhausted to running the length of the country, from remoteness in Libya to the heat across Death Valley, from the mountains of the Alps to the flatness of the track.
