March 19, 2022
9AM Start - Rain or Shine
Eisenhower Park Field #2


SPECIAL: A FREE Barb’s Beer for all runners (Ages 21+) see barbsbeer.org

FREE copy of the novel that inspired the race: a donor is making 50 copies of the Boston Marathon mystery, RUNNER IN RED, by Tom Murphy, available free.
 Visit RUNNER IN RED tent on Race Day for details!

The race and the novel raise funds to support a cure for lung cancer. 


The Runner in Red 5K draws its name from a real-life Boston Marathon legend. In 1951, a group of Canadian runners insisted they saw a woman sneak into the Boston Marathon, which would make her the first woman to run a marathon in America. She “wore red,” but their contention was never proven and thus the “Runner in Red” became part of Boston Marathon legend.

Tom Murphy’s novel offers a search for the mystery runner “in red,” with a love story, family drama and a history of women’s running. Proceeds from the book support our cure lung cancer campaign see full details on the novel and the cause - click here.   

Our goal is to create awareness for our Runner in Red charity campaign to find a cure for lung cancer which takes the lives of more women than any other cancer.

Can’t run, but want to contribute to our 501c3 charity CAUSE - Click Here!
