The International Association of Women Runners is honoured to partner with Kathrine Switzer, a true pioneer in women’s running and the most influential woman runner to date. Not only was she the first women to enter and run the Boston Marathon, she has dedicated her multi-faceted career to creating opportunities and equal sport status for women.
That career has included creating programs in 27 countries for over 1 million women that led to the inclusion of the women’s marathon as an official event in the Olympic Games, changing forever the face of sports, health and opportunities for women around the world.
Kathrine has graciously given the IAWR permission to include a CD of a recorded interview with her as a Bonus Membership Benefit. We had the pleasure of interviewing Kathrine in October 2009.
