Meet The First Woman To Officially Run The Boston Marathon
In 1967, a young woman runner looked to make the Boston Marathon her first marathon. She signed up using her first two initials and her surname. That year, Kathrine Switzer became the first registered female runner of the Boston Marathon, an event that changed the course of her life.
Kathrine Switzer speaks at the Live Fearlessly Luncheon hosted by Girls On The Run Serving Greater Kansas City. The event takes place at noon on Wednesday, May 4, at The Westin at Crown Center. Click here for tickets and information.
