Roger Robinson on The Remarkable Ron Hill. …The British version of our Mark Covert. …Back when, barefoot racing in cross country was the norm. In 1961 and 1962, Don and most raced barefoot on the two mile cross country course at Mt. SAC, finishing on the track. …Ron Hill wrote The Long Hard Road. It was expensive and available only by corresponding with some source in England. I read Part I and it was terrible. Imagine being trapped on a hot bus next to some runner you didn’t know and he/she start boring you about every detail, every race… I didn’t buy Part II.
