New Zealand has a proud athletic history dating back to the 1800s. Never before has there been a book that includes so many New Zealand runners, and in such rich detail. The Kiwi Runners' Family Tree tells the stories of over 100 running related athletes and coaches, focusing on ...the interconnections between the generations as well as the important relationships within those generations. This family tree has wellgrounded roots, a strong trunk and a vast amount of experience, knowledge and inspiration coursing through its branches. The book expertly tells the many interconnected stories of New Zealand's runners, from sprinters through to ultramarathoners, as well as hurdlers, steeplechasers, race walkers and Para athletes. Each chapter incapsulates athletes' achievements, inspirations, coaches and compatriots. The athletes' stories, some never been told before, are complemented by many fascinating photos. The Kiwi Runners' Family Tree features more than 20 personal interviews with athletes, administrators and coaches, to ensure historical and statistical accuracy.
