Have Boston Police Made Any Progress On Race Gap?

First woman to officially run Boston Marathon to run again

A 20-year-old Syracuse University journalism student made history in 1967 by becoming the first woman to officially enter the Boston Marathon. Now, 50 years later, Kathrine Switzer will return to the Boston Marathon starting line wearing the same number an official tried to rip off her clothing in the 1967 race. The incident was captured in an iconic photo that turned Switzer into a role model and launched her career as an advocate for women's equality in sports.
