Empire State Building run up.
These are just a few of the sports included in Lonely Planet's book, A Year of Sport Travel. Organized by month and week, the book covers internationally renowned competitions alongside intriguing local passions to provide readers with an outline to get their sports fix while traveling the globe.
The book is full of interesting color photos of each event along with statistics and relevant information. There were many sports in this book that I had never heard of so I found the book interesting simply for the introduction to the various sports. I, unfortunately, don't do much traveling but I could see that a book like this would have a lot of appeal to someone who likes to see the world.
A Year of Sport Travel is available for $16.99 on the Lonely Planet web site. You can also buy it and other Lonely Planet books at retailers like Amazon and your local book store.
