Kathrine Switzer: 50 Years On

Fifty years after the attempt to bundle her out of the BAA Boston Marathon as an unauthorised entrant — a woman — running pioneer Kathrine Switzer will take part in the 121st BAA Boston Marathon on 17 April.

This time, she will be joined by 114 women and seven men from 20 counties who are representing and raising funds for 261 Fearless, Inc., Switzer’s global non-profit organisation that empowers women around the world through a social running community.
