The Boston Marathon is like a race that brings together the best runners of each country.

Every September, the world marathon community will hold their breath waiting for a letter confirming the eligibility to participate in the Boston Athletic Association (Boston Athletic Association) tournament. Then they had to wait seven more months, on the right Patriots’ Day of America to stride like a flight on the Boston Marathon – the oldest race on the planet.

The Boston Marathon took place for the first time on April 19, 1897 in Massachusetts, USA, inspired by the first marathon in the world in the 1896 Greek Olympics. Thanks to that, this is the most historic Marathon in the world. However, until 1924, the Boston Marathon’s run was still considered “unsatisfactory” when it only spanned about 40 km.

Kathrine Switzer (20 years old) was the first woman to attend the Boston Marathon with the Bib number attached to her shirt, 1967. However, she was discovered and chased by Jock Semple (of the BTC) and tried to tear the Bib number above. shirt. The photo that captures this moment has become one of the symbols of the feminist movement in the world. Fifty years later, Kathrine Switzer returned to the competition and finished with a 4:44:31 record.

In 2015, the percentage of women attending the Boston Marathon increased to 46% of the more than 30,000 runners each season.

This also proves that just with the quality and hard work, a movement athlete can also beat the runner legs.
