Introduction A brief history of The Dead Runners Society. I first became aware of the Internet in 1991 and decided to start a running list of my own. I put together a small mailing list on March 15, 1991 with the addresses of some of my co-workers and Internet running friends and named it after a movie called the Dead Poets Society. We later moved to a Listserv list at Dartmouth College where we are today. The list grew and deads started forming regional groups and meeting each other. At this point we were no longer just an Internet list but a community of runners all over the world. We celebrated our 21st birthday in February of 2012 with a world conference here in Austin, Texas.
