On the Run - Short Film | NZ On Screen

On the Run takes you to the heart of New Zealand running with Arthur Lydiard, Jack Foster, Heather Thompson Matthews, John Walker and others. Watching Jack Foster run down the scree mountain side is worth the show. Probably the closest you see to a man flying. Notice that he holds his arms up much like a child when they are learning to walk and run. Check out Ruthie in "Why Runners Heel Strike"  http://bit.ly/13x2aci

 

"This film showcases legendary running coach Arthur Lydiard's training methods through the example of his acolytes, including then reigning Olympic 1,500m champ John Walker."

'Arthur's boys' (Snell, Halberg, Magee) scored attention by winning unheralded medals (two golds and a bronze) at the 1960 Rome Olympics. Lydiard later led the 'flying Finns' to similar success. His method revolves around building stamina to complement speed, and was influential in popularising jogging globally. Beautifully filmed, a doco highlight is Jack Foster's exhilarating scree slope descent.
