Boston Marathon remains an inspiration for all who run
20 April 2017, 02:52 | Justin Tyler
The first woman to run the Boston Marathon in the United States participated the race again on Monday, 50 years after she was almost forced off the course.
In the first marathon of her career, Hasay finished in third place among female runners with a time of 2:23:00. Kathrine tells John about the day she was shoved, and how participating in the marathon went from being an act of passion, to a political statement that day.
Anoher woman, Bobbi Gibb, had unofficially completed the 26.2-mile course a year earlier, popping out of the bushes after she was denied an official bib.
Spitzer said her return to the race in 2017 was a way to, "celebrate the fact, first of all, that I can run - that I'm capable of doing it, amazingly enough, and I'm very, very grateful for that".
This time, she was hailed for paving the way for women's distance running around the world.
The elite come to Boston because it's prestigious, and so does everyone else who finishes hours later, including Deborah Touchy, who was escorted down the last mile by a woman she didn't even know.
Switzer went on to finish the race at a time of 4h20m, a full hour behind Bobbi Gibb, the female victor on the day, but who ran without registering.
