This book traces and celebrates the growth of the Auckland jogging phenomenon, from its modest beginnings to its amazing success around the world. It also celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Auckland Joggers Club, the first jogging club in the world. Every day, all over the world, hundreds of thousands of people go for a jog. Perhaps only for their health's sake; or they're getting fit for a fun run - or a marathon - or to toughen up and stay trim for another sporting activity. How many know that it all began with one man, a nut-brown nugget of fitness called Arthur Lydiard, and a motley group of some 30 unfit men who had been enticed to go for a run with him because he convinced them it would do them nothing but good.
