Ira Rainey

Ira Rainey is a self-confessed delusional optimist who grew up believing he was bionic, who went on to publish “Fat Man to Green Man: From Unfit to Ultramarathon” and is currently in the final stages of editing his next book, “Still Not Bionic”.

“Fat Man to Green Man” won the silver award for books at The 2014 Running Awards, and Ira was also a shortlisted finalist for New Writer of the Year at The British Sports Book Awards. He likes beer and running, and lives on the edge of Bristol with two demanding cats and a very understanding family. He is absolutely not bionic.
