Bingham, John

John Bingham (born 1948) is an American marathon runner and author, nicknamed “The Penguin”, who has achieved widespread recognition for promoting running to the general public.

Bingham is the author of several books and the No Need for Speed column in Runner's World. His writings are characterized by his espousal of the belief that the goals of running are to have fun and finish—and that for a vast majority of amateur athletes running fast should not be the only aim.
