5800 East Bridge Street East Syracuse,
The evening is a celebration of Roger Robinson's new book, When Running Made History, called "a must-read" by American record holder Deena Kastor. Kathrine Switzer will also be signing copies of her highly successful book, Marathon Woman, which "shares how she forced the running world to view women in an entirely new light." (Billy Jean King) Switzer and Robinson will both speak and take questions prior to signing books. The event kicks of at 6 p.m.
Kathrine Switzer has long been one of running’s most iconic figures. Not just for breaking barriers as the first woman to officially run the Boston Marathon in 1967, but also for creating positive global social change. Because of her millions of women are now empowered by the simple act of running.
