We have been discussing on a facebook running wall Kathrine Switzer and the prejudice that she endured at the 1967 Boston Marathon, and how far the world has moved on since. The discussion then moved onto how many women only events there are such as the race for life. Now my questions are why and is this reverse sexism?
I don't think its due to skill levels, the majority of women I run with are far better runners than I am or will ever be. Can't see being due embarrassment, as the Parkruns are well attended, and events are not carried out under cover. I only ask as I would love to run the Race For Life for personal reasons, but as a man it seems I am not allowed, if it was the other way round it would be news in the Daily Mail Will be interesting to see your thoughts.
