・・・
Running legend @kathrineswitzer is gearing up to rock bib number 261 on October 7! 💪 Pairing an iconic women’s event with a lifelong advocate for women’s empowerment, Switzer is ready to hit the pavement and join thousands of women in this historic race. 🙌
Switzer’s trailblazing career began at the 1967 Boston Marathon, when she became the first woman to wear a bib number and complete the historic race. Donning bib number 261, images of Switzer’s encounter with a disgruntled race director during the event were spread globally and helped launch a revolution for women’s participation in sports. It was out of this revolution that races like the Boston 10K for Women began.
In 2016, Switzer launched @261fearless, a global non-profit committed to empowering women through running. At 76, Switzer is still a force, relentlessly working to create opportunities for women. We can’t wait to see her October 7! 💙🏃‍♀️
