Mark Your Calendar 1st Annual Women's Right to Run 19K Media Sponored by Women TIES and the Women's Athletic Network

Kathrine Switzer Featuring:
Kathrine Switzer
Long distance running legend, activist and author

Saturday, May 7, 2016
8 a.m.
Seneca Falls, New York

Reservations due:  May 6


Mark your calendars now for the 1st Annual Women's Right To Run 19K. Women TIES and the Women's Athletic Network is proud to be a media sponsor of this exciting athletic event.

Proceeds from the run will benefit the National Women's Hall of Fame's capital campaign which raises funds to rehabilitate the former Seneca Falls Knitting Mill into its future home, The Center for Great Women.

Long distance running legend, activist and author Kathrine Switzer is the national spokesperson for the run. In 1967 Switzer became the first women to officially run and finish the then all-male Boston Marathon, and won the New York City Marathon in 1974.

"As an inductee of the National Women's Hall of Fame, it is truly an honor to be a part of this race," said Switzer. "The race is a fitting tribute to the 19th amendment which gave women the right to vote, and 19km – 11.8 challenging miles- reflects with a unique distance the challenges our foremothers had in going the distance to get that vote."

Further information about the run's cost and details will be on the Right to Run 19k website in April 2016.
