Join women’s running pioneer, Kathrine Switzer, at the Humana Rock ‘n’ Roll Chicago 5K!
Fifty years ago, Switzer made history by pinning on an official race bib and running in the 1967 Boston Marathon, five years before the race accepted women. She was famously chased down by race director Jock Semple, who was cursing at her and trying to tear off her 261 race number.
Run the 5K with her, on Saturday, and stop by the Health & Fitness Expo to hear her speak. She’ll be at the Humana booth at the Expo on Friday, July 14, at 2pm and Saturday, July 15, at 2pm.
