"Run for the Diamonds: 100 Years of Footracing in Berwick, Pennsylvania (by Mark Will-Weber), is an in-depth (370-plus pages, dozens of photographs) year-by-year history of the fourth oldest road race in America. From the war-whoop sounding Carlisle Indian School runners and the Flying Finns (Olympic champions Hannes Kolehmainen and Ville Ritola) of the “early days” to the 1000-plus fields of today, read-along (run-along) as Berwick pushes toward a rarely-achieved finish line--a full century of competitive racing over the rugged, rollercoaster route that includes the quad-hammering, lung-searing ascent to Summer Hill.”
