The 27th Mile

Going the extra mile to support the victims
of the Boston Marathon bombing

An Anthology by Runners
for Runners

A stellar group of writers who run, people like Jeff Galloway, Lawrence Block, Kathrine Switzer, and Ben Tanzer, have come together to bring you an entertaining collection of stories and articles inspired by our common passion.

The 27th Mile is dedicated to everyone who loves running or runners—first and foremost to those who were killed or injured at the marathon, but also to the people who, even as they eat dinner with their family, put in another eight hours at work, or sit and read this book, have already planned when they’ll go out for their next run.

One of the contributors, 1968 Boston Marathon champion and Runner's World editor Amby Burfoot, says The 27th Mile, “is not just another running book. It's varied enough to be interesting, with articles, fiction, and poetry, but it's focused enough to have a moral, emotional core that will resonate with runners and those who love them.”

Within this book, you’ll find stories that extol the spirit that first got us out on the roads to run, that brought us to Boston on a sunny spring day, and that will bring us back to Hopkinton next year and in the years that follow. It's the spirit we celebrate every time we go for a run, whatever the distance.
