"Born to Run" author Christopher McDougall to visit Berks

Christopher McDougall, New York Times Best-Selling Author of "Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen", will visit Penn State Berks on Monday, November 30, at 8:00 p.m. in the Perkins Student Center Multipurpose Room. This free event is open to the public.

McDougall is a former war correspondent for the Associated Press and is now a contributing editor for Men's Health. A three-time National Magazine Award finalist, he has written for Esquire, The New York Times Magazine, Outside, Men's Journal, and New York.

In his most recent book, "Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen", McDougall sets off to find a tribe of the world's greatest distance runners and learn their secrets, and in the process shows us that everything we thought we knew about running is wrong. Born to Run not only engages the mind but inspires the body when you realize that the secret to happiness is right at your feet, and that you, indeed all of us, were born to run.

This event is sponsored by the Department of Athletics in cooperation with the Pagoda Pacers Athletic Club. For more information contact Lisa K. Deibler, Director of Athletics, at 610-396-6162 or lkd13@psu.edu.
