In 1967, irate race official Jock Semple tried forcibly to remove Kathrine Switzer from the then all-male Boston Marathon simply because she was a woman.  Luckily for Switzer, her boyfriend bounced the official out of the race instead and she went on to finish.  Switzer was inspired by the incident to create running events for women all over the world and was a leader in getting the women’s marathon into the Olympic Games.
