RUNNER IN RED 5K - Racing to Cure Lung Cancer

Sunday, March 15, 2020 | 9:00 AM Start

Eisenhower Park, East Meadow, New York

ABOUT

The Runner in Red 5K draws its name from a real-life Boston Marathon legend. The story goes that the first woman to run a marathon in America snuck into the Boston Marathon in 1951. She “wore red,” according to the legend, in an era when women were not allowed to compete.

Tom Murphy’s novel offers a search for the mystery runner “in red,” while exploring the history of women’s running. Proceeds from the book support the cause.

We invite men and women runners to WEAR RED in our March 15th 5k race. All participants will get a Runner in Red t-shirt if you choose to wear that. Our goal is to help 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.
