The Great Bunion Derby
In the Depression-hit America of the 1920s, a get-rich-quick promoter offered fabulous prizes for a 3,000-mile Trans-
Continental Footrace. Hundreds of runners attempted the route from Los Angeles to New York, which took them across the sun-scorched Mojave Desert and the snow-bound Rockies.
Tom McNab recounts the story of the first Trans-Continental Footrace.
