Event description

Description

The Fleet Feet Running Club is proud to present a night with Kathrine Switzer.

At last year's Boston Marathon, legendary runner Kathrine Switzer became the first woman to run a marathon 50 years after she ran her first. Her first Boston run was in 1967 when she became the first woman to officially enter and run the race.

Kathrine continues breaking barriers. At 71, she’s proving that age is just a number. Since running Boston last year, she ran the New York City Marathon and the London Marathon. She’s running the Humana Rock ‘n’ Roll Chicago Half Marathon as she trains for Berlin later this year.

Join us for a night of running and conversation with her.

  • 6:30pm: 3 Mile Fun Run from Fleet Feet South Loop
  • 7:30pm: Q&A with Kathrine
  • 8pm: Meet & Greet with Kathrine

Food and drink will be provided post-run thanks to Rock n' Roll Chicago and Michelob Ultra.

If you are unable to make it, the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series will be streaming the Q & A live on their page. Check it out here: https://www.facebook.com/RunRocknRoll/
