The Race to Equality

Boston, April 19th 1967: Kathrine Switzer makes history by becoming the first woman to run a marathon.

During her run, the race director assaulted Kathrine, trying to grab her bib number and thereby remove her from the official competition.

However, not only did Kathrine persevere to finish the race but also achieved a significant milestone for equality in sports serving as an inspiration for millions to this day.

To honor Kathrine’s legacy we dove into this moment that millions of people know only through one picture. And we created the RunFund, which will pay for first time women runners for years.
