Kathrine Switzer Will Be With Us Again!
In 1967, she was the first women to officially enter and run the Boston Marathon. They tried to physically remove her from the race! Largely because of her efforts and leadership, by 1984 the Women's Marathon was included in the Olympic Games. What an amazing journey she is living.
And now, some 58% of the runners and walkers in Half Marathons are women. It's unbelievable!
In 2011, when she was inducted into the U.S.A. National Women's Hall of Fame, it was not just for breaking barriers but also for creating positive global social change. Because of her, millions of women are now empowered by participating in sports. Or, as Kathrine says, "it's not about running and walking. It's about changing peoples lives." Kathrine loves our event, with the course going past The Falls TWICE! And then along the mighty Niagara River. "It's one of the world's beautiful courses, and also a great course for PB's."
The whole weekend is a true celebration of fitness and healthy lifestyles. So many unique touches make this Women's Half Marathon a lifelong memory.
