In 1979, the RRCA started the Women’s Distance Festival in response to the lack of distance running events in the Olympics Games for women. Today, the Women’s Distance Festival celebrates the history of women’s rights to participate in running events at any distance and at any age. The Women’s Distance Festival continues to serve as a celebration of the determination and dedication of women runners across the country.
