Upcoming Team Competition Race(s) :
Rick Pascarella said of Kings of the Road. "A must read for all"
Author Cameron Stracher former competitive miler and distance runner with the Warren Street Athletic Club in NYC
"In Kings of the Road, Cameron Stracher recaptures the wonder, energy, and excitement of American road racing from 1972 to 1982. With amazing detail and action, he follows Frank Shorter, Bill Rodgers, and Alberto Salazar to their greatest victories in an era when they became national sports icons."
–Amby Burfoot, 1968 Boston Marathon winner and Runner’s World Editor-at-Large
Frank Shorter was a Yale graduate and medical school student. For years he ran in his spare time while pursuing a traditional career path. But eventually he gave up med school so he could train more. His work paid off; in 1972 at the Munich Olympics, he was the first American to win the marathon in 64 years.
Bill Rodgers was a chain-smoking motorcycle-loving 20-something who spent his free time hanging out in Boston bars with his brother and childhood friends. Then someone stole his motorcycle. Then he was fired from his entry-level job for trying to unionize employees. Feeling adrift, he threw himself into running.
The son of Cuban exiles, Alberto Salazar started breaking records at age 16. His father in particular was unhappy with life in America. To please him, Alberto ran and ran. At age 22 he predicted that he would finish his debut marathon in under 2 hours and 10 minutes – and succeeded.
