The Runner in Red 5K draws its name from the “Runner in Red,” a novel by Tom Murphy based on a real-life Boston Marathon legend. In 1951, a group of Canadian runners insisted they saw a woman slip into the Boston Marathon before women were allowed to run. She “wore red,” according to the Canadians, but their contention was never proven and thus the controversy moved into legend.
Tom Murphy’s novel, also a love story and Irish family drama, offers a search for the mysterious runner “in red.” The book combines with “Barb’s Beer,” named for Barb Murphy, the author’s wife and runner who passed away from non-smoker’s lung cancer in 2013. The book and the beer raise funds to cure lung cancer which takes the lives of more women than any other cancer.
