30th anniversary of the Avon Women’s Run ‘Frauenlauf’
May 4, 2013 at 12:00 am
In 1983, Kathrine and original race director Horst Milde founded this race with 243 women. Now it is the biggest women’s running event in Germany—18,500 women(!) and Horst’s son Mark is now the race director. Kathrine will run it in celebration and also promote the German edition of her book Marathon Woman. Buy this edition at www.spomedis-shop.de
Spiridon, one of the leading running magazines in Germany, featured this article: Die Läuferin: “Frauen überholen Männer” / Women Overtake Men. The article cites the huge growth in women’s running, and quoting me for my current views as one of the founders in 1983 of the Avon Frauenauf Berlin, the first ever women’s only race in Germany and now the largest with over 18,500 women.
I plan to run it again this year, for the 30th anniversary, on May 4!
