Human Kinetics Author Rich Elliott Wins Prestigious Cordner Nelson Book Award
Date:6/29/2012

Eugene, OR (PRWEB) June 29, 2012

At their annual breakfast in Eugene, Oregon, the Track and Field Writers of America awarded Rich Elliott the Cordner Nelson Book Award for "Runners on Running: The Best Nonfiction of Distance Running" (Human Kinetics, 2011). The award, named after the legendary co-founder of Track and Field News, was started in 2010. It is dedicated to honoring a book related to the sport that was published in the previous year. Past winners include Christopher McDougall "Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen") and Laura Hillenbrand ("Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption"). "I feel deeply honored to accept this award, named for one of my heroes, one of the greats in running literature," said Elliott.

Elliott competed at Kansas University from 1968 to 1972, qualifying for the NCAA Division I national meets in both track and cross country. In 1971, he was the Big Eight Conference three-mile champion.

In 1976, Elliott was named Illinois Distance Coach of the Year while working at Willowbrook High School. He moved to Deerfield High School in 1977 and was an assistant coach with the state cross country championship team before becoming the program's head coach for both cross country and track. Elliott coached at the high-school level for 12 years, producing a pair of All-Americans and several all-state athletes. During this time he also wrote "The Competitive Edge: Mental Preparation for Distance Running" (Prentice-Hall), a book that Track and Field News called “the best work on the subject” and “a modern classic.”

Elliott then worked for many years in educational publishing as a textbook editor and technology producer. He returned to coaching from 2008 to 2010 to head the men’s and women’s
