Kathrine Switzer Speaker Profile
Kathrine Switzer Biography
The German-born runner grew up in a military family and went to college at Syracuse University where she got both her bachelors and masters degrees by 1972. However, 1967 was the first Boston Marathon that she signed up for under an ambiguous name and after completing the race she was not recognized as doing so because women were not allowed to sign up for it. Switzer put up a fight that made national news, and despite women getting barred from all AAU races she continued to strive for the change. By 1972 the rules were finally changed and she was able to enter the Boston Marathon for the first time legitimately, alongside other women. She made a remarkable difference in the running world and to this day continues to share her story to inspire other women to live a life without limits.
