‘Turning Right’ book - Kay Bretz’s transformation


‘Turning Right’ book shares compelling account of marathon runner Kay Bretz’s transformation into one of the best ultra-runners in the world.


Ultra-runner Kay Bretz beat the race record of Australia’s Big Red Run by more than five hours and was awarded the Australian Ultra Performance of the Year Award at the 24-hour world championships in France – but it took a significant change in mindset to do it.


In the new book, Turning Right: Inspire the Magic (Major Street Publishing $32.95, April 2021), the elite athlete shares his fascinating personal journey to success, interweaving his amazing running journey with how he overcame physical, mental and professional challenges to achieve his goals and break records, all by ‘turning right’ when his perspective on what he was capable of started to shift. Bretz explains how he left behind self-imposed limitations that prevented him from reaching his dreams, often rejecting what was reasonable and logical, and found the magic instead.


Completely unputdownable, Turning Right will inspire you to transform who you think you are to reach your highest aspirations.
