What is The Art of Running?

The high octane world of track and field brought to life. The Art of Running details the life of America’s greatest athlete: Steve Prefontaine. His determined front running, his never-give-up attitude and the love for his fans made Pre a hero that the world looked up to, and continues to look up to nearly 40 years later. The Art of Running showcases the true beauty, pain and glory of the athletics track in a way that has never been seen before.

Why Should We Pick This Up?

In a day and age where we idolise so many for so little, why not inspire people across the world with the story of someone truly worthy of our admiration? From the writer famed for re-launching classic British comic athlete Alf Tupper: Tough of the Track comes the true story of an American legend: Steve Prefontaine.

No matter who you are, where you come from or what you do, Steve Prefontaine preached that you could do anything, as long as you believed in yourself.

So behind the bang of the starting gun, the fluttering of the finish tape and the roar of the crowd comes The Art of Running; the story of a true hero and the idea that anything is possible, as long as you believe.
