of Boston’s Mr. Marathon

By Tom Murphy, John. J. Kelley and Jock Semple

Proceeds Help Bring Barb’s Beer to Boston!

Originally published in 1982, the book is being released again for a new generation of runners and readers to introduce them to the life of one of Boston (and running’s) most colorful characters. A great runner in the 30s and 40s (Jock finished in the top at Boston nine times,) Jock Semple was a trainer of champions and co-director of the Boston Marathon for 30 years.

See NY Times coverage when book was originally published – new edition has new material and new photos.

Proceeds from the book support our effort to bring the Barb’s Beer campaign to cure lung cancer to Boston.

Donations accepted as well!

Funds from the sale of Barb’s Beer support GRACE (cancerGRACE.org) a charity created by Dr. Howard West, Barb’s oncologist and one of the country’s leading experts racing “fast” to find a cure.

MEET OUR PARTNERS who serve Barb’s Beer and make the campaign possible!

We need YOU to join our “racing team!” Why? Because “numbers” on our roster give us the ability to sign up even more restaurants as partners – that allows us to increase funding for cancerGRACE.org.
