10 hopefuls, 26 miles, 1 target: The Moon.Jon Dunn is a nobody, going nowhere in life. But that all changes when he answers a random email that puts him on a journey that'll take him so far out of his comfort zone, he'll need a telescope just to look back at it.Escaping from his increasingly demented boss is the easy bit. Running naked from the law at a top tourist attraction and surviving training from a sadistic instructor will be more difficult. Billionaire Doug Peabody wants to send mankind's first rocket to the Moon in decades. He's even created a competition to win a seat on it...providing his ex-friend Dmitri doesn't sabotage his already-threadbare plans and beat him to it.Can Jon stop the evil, win-at-all-costs Nicki? And can he really trust Summer, the girl with the yo-yo halo?From the London skyline to the punishing bridges of the New York City Marathon, Jon and nine other going-nowheres are branded like cattle and put through the challenge and pain of a competition for the most exciting prize the world has ever seen.The Great Space Race is on!
