Reviews:
"Joe Ryan's enthusiasm for the Tely 10 shines through in this history of one of Newfoundland's premier sporting events. Classic Tely champions like Pat Kelly, George Hillier, Paul McCloy and Nicola Will all take a bow in a book bursting with running personalities and race anecdotes."

"...an outstanding contribution to the road-running community in Newfoundland."
