The Running Man (May 1982)

The Running Man is set in a dystopian United States during the year 2025, in which the nation's economy is in ruins and world violence is rising. The story follows protagonist Ben Richards as he participates in the game show The Running Man in which contestants, allowed to go anywhere in the world, are chased by "Hunters" employed to kill them.

The Running Man has connections to the following books:

...Minus 046 and COUNTING... : Derry, ME

At one point in his journey (around when he breaks the survival record), Richards makes his way to an airport in Derry.

“He’s right,” Richards said. “But I just had to get to…uh…” He snapped his fingers in a pantomime of it-just-slipped-my-mind. “You know, jetport.” “You must mean Voigt Field.” “That’s it.” “Jeez, that’s over a hundred miles from here, mister. In Derry.”
