              This book chronicles the emergence of organised middle and long distance running in New Zealand from the time of early European settlement through to the 1950 Empire Games which were held in Auckland in 1950. It tells how professional runners dominated through to World War One an...d reveals the stories of runners now forgotten - John O'Connor who travelled between New Zealand and Australia competing in the 1880s, Lachie McLachlan who had he been an amateur could have been an Olympic champion in the early 1900s, and Billy Trembath, of Gore, a world professional champion just before World War One. After the war amateur athletics grew helped by the rise of the Olympic Games and the start of the British Empire Games. A Wairarapa farmworker Randolph Rose became a star of the 1920s but the greatest period of running started in 1930 with Billy Savidan winning the British Empire Games 6 miles in 1930. Then came Jack Lovelock, a medical student who became a world famous celebrity setting world records and winning the Olympic Games 1500m at Berlin. The decade ended with Cecil Matthews and Pat Boot winning British Empire titles to make middle and long distance running arguably the most successful sport internationally speaking for New Zealand during the decade. The book carries through to Harold Nelson who won the British Empire Games 6 miles in 1950. Containing more than 70 rare photos the book also explains the evolution of training methods as well as the formation of the NZAAA (now Athletics NZ) and world governing bodies while telling the stories of all the great athletes who started New Zealand's middle and long distance running tradition.

              Cary lives in Concord, a town that shouldn't exist, built to house evacuees from Corstorphine after the meltdown of a nuclear reactor when she was a little girl. She can't remember anything about the meltdown or her life in Corstorphine. No one talks about it, including her paren...ts. Up until now Cary only cared about two things, finding out the truth about her past and getting out of Concord. This year things are different. For the first time in her life, Cary has more than one friend. She's even falling for someone. Will her obsession with the past derail everything? When videos taken behind the cordon surface on social media, they trigger memories from Cary's past and she is compelled to break into The Zone in the search for answers. The secrets she uncovers are not confined to the past, or the boundaries of The Zone. Can Cary separate the truth from the lies, including the ones told to her by her own family? Torn between love and exposing The Zone's secrets, Cary must pick a side
