The incredible finish was contested the world over when Pietri, who initially ran the wrong way upon entering the stadium at Shepherd's Bush, finished first but was disqualified for receiving aid from officials after collapsing just shy of the finish line, thus giving the title to runner-up Hayes. In the midst of anti-American sentiment, Queen Alexandria awarded a special cup to Pietri, who became an international celebrity and inspired one of Irving Berlin's first songs. David Davis recalls a time when runners braved injurious roads with slips of leather for shoes and when marathon mania became a worldwide obsession. Standing next to Cait Murphy's Crazy '08 as an invaluable look at a bygone sporting era, this dramatic narrative is aimed at the recordsetting number of marathon participants in the United States (more than 500,000 in 2010!) and nicely for the return of the Olympics to London in 2012"--2783ocn047948034book20020.19Batten, JackThe man who ran faster than everyone : the story of Tom LongboatBiographyTom Longboat was a hero. A member of the Onondaga Nation, he was born on the Six Nations reserve in Oshwegen, near Brantford, Ontario. Despite poverty, poor training, and prejudice, Longboat went on to become one of the world's best runners. In 1907, at the height of his fame, he won the Boston Marathon and ran in the 1908 Olympic Marathon. Longboat was one of the best-known people of his day, and certainly the most prominent member of the Six Nations. Throughout his career he had to race against opponents, as well as rumors of illegal running activities. Nevertheless, he maintained his dignity, and his achievements still inspire people who understand the great pleasure of running, and running fast+-+12501223351244ocn010272520book19800.07Kidd, BruceTom LongboatJuvenile worksBiographyBiography of Canadian native runner.

Then on April 19, 1907, against rain, slush, tough hills and 104 other entrants, Longboat won the Boston Marathon in record time. He competed in the marathon event at the 1908 Olympics, but collapsed just before mile 20 amid rumours of doping. In 1909, he defeated Englishman Alfie Shrubb and became the world's best distance runner. As a dispatch runner in WWI, he carried messages and orders between units, but was never awarded his pension. Voted the #1 Canadian sports figure of the 20th century by Maclean's Magazine, he was one of the most celebrated athletes in the country's history and is a member of the Canadian Sports Hall of Fame.

A Canadian-born Onondaga Indian, he battled racism, rumours of alcohol abuse, and poor training habits to rise to the top of his sport, winning scores of races in North America and Europe from 1905 to 1930, including the Boston Marathon. Tom's heritage meant that he came from a culture where running was a highly prized skill, and although it also meant that he had to fight stereotypes and prejudice, he never lost his dignity.
