Founded in 1973, the Greater Boston Track Club had humble beginnings but was quick to establish itself as a force of competitive runners. Initially an all-inclusive club of sprinters, hurdlers and middle-distance runners, the club evolved under the brilliant leadership of Coach Bill Squires. The club boasts nearly eighty regional, national and international titles. It has bred world-class runners such as Olympian Bill Rodgers (four-time winner of the Boston and New York marathons) and Olympian Alberto Salazar (three-time winner of the New York marathon and winner of the Boston and the Comrades Ultra marathons). Author Paul C. Clerici honors the Greater Boston Track Club through historical records and the experiences of those involved in its legacy.
