ABOUT

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. Purchase the novel to support the cause.
