During the Depression the ebullient American entrepreneur Charles Flanagan assembles 2,000 runners from all corners of the earth, to run from Los Angeles to New York for prize-money of $150,000. Flanagan's Trans-America runners face 3,000 miles, across the Mojave desert and the frozen Rockies, running a daily average of 50 miles for three months. The American sports establishment, however, is desperate to crush what it sees as a professional challenge to the 1932 Los Angeles Olympics. Every day is therefore a struggle for survival, for Flanagan himself as well as the runners. Flanagan's Run is an epic tale, and a testimony to the strength of the human spirit.

    " Audiobook. Kept me entertained during many a morning workout but much longer than it should have been and some things were just too implausible for me (i.e, the Capone run-in and outcome, and the evil Olympic chairman), but likeable characters and in general it is sort of a shout out to runners. "

    " I read this in my teens and recently found it at the library and read it again. Love this book, I want to own it! "

    " Enjoyable story of the first American cross country foot race in the 1930's and the obstacles that had to be overcome by its feisty organizer. "

    " I first read this as a teen when it came out as a Reader's Digest condensed book. I loved it so much that when I was older I found a paperback copy and held on to it for years. When I found out it was available for Kindle I bought it. I would have paid triple the price! "

    " haunting story. All the characters have a reason to run and soon you want all of them to win. "

    " My favorite running book of all time, so I give it 5 starts for top of the genre. "

    " Great read. The running theme was a good one to keep me interested. Not normally a big period piece buy but loved the running, loved the characters. Great story. I listened to it on Audible and the narrator was absolutely amazing - killer accents. "

    " I loved it. A big story, told through characters you actually care about. I didn't want it to end. Wish he'd written more. "

    " I'm surprised I enjoyed this book. Never dragged on and I couldn't put it down. Nothing earth shattering but it did make me think about my own running career (or lack thereof) and make a more determined effort to get back into competitive running. "

    " very entertaining historical novel based in the 1930s about a race across America. "
