A History of the Litchfield Hills Road Race: In Smallness, There is Beauty
$20.00
by Lou Pellegrino
Forty years after two friends brought the joy and excitement of the 1970’s running boom to their hometown of Litchfield, Connecticut, the Litchfield Hills Road Race continues to challenge and delight world-class runners, first-timers, and everyone in between. In celebration of the race’s 40th anniversary, the Litchfield Historical Society released the first comprehensive history of the event Runner’s World Magazine dubbed “The best little race you’ve never heard of.” A History of the Litchfield Hills Road Race: In Smallness, There is Beauty captures the spirit of a beloved community event and the quintessential New England town which embraced it, and serves as a tribute to the race’s creator Joe Concannon, a sportswriter for The Boston Globe who wanted nothing more than to share
his hometown and his love of running with the world.
