Runner in Red, by Tom Murphy, is based on a real-life Boston Marathon legend that a woman “wearing red” snuck into the Boston Marathon in 1951, fifteen years before history knew of the first woman runner. The novel is a mystery, love story and family drama that explores the history of women’s running. Tom is contributing all profits from the novel to the Barb’s Beer cure lung cancer campaign.
