Katherine Switzer NY mini 10k 40th Anniversary from Samuel Adams on Vimeo.
The NYRR's NY mini 10K started in 1972 and some of the ladies that ran it then for the team crazy legs where there to do it again. Katherine Switzer, Nina Kuscsik and Jaqueline Dixon ran 40 years ago because they wanted to not because they were trying to overpower men or stand for something. After many years that simple choice of running in their twenties when not many women were allowed to race, has become the reason that women are running so freely today. Kathrine Switzer was inducted into the Women's Hall of Fame and has continued to push liberation and empowerment to women around the world ever since.
