Women were not allowed to run
Women were not allowed to run the Boston Marathon in 1967. Kathrine Switzer dodged that rule, and became the first woman to finish despite organizers trying to stop her. I can only assume she signed up as a man in order to get an official bib number.

Not allowing a woman to run in a marathon is a disgrace. It irks me to see those two men accosting her as she finishes the race. "You've come a long way baby" !!!
