In 1972 (1972!) women weren't allowed to run Boston. Actually it wasn't until 1977 that they were allowed to run, largely as a result of what Kathrine Switzer did in 1972. What's amazing is that based on the story, and based on the footage, the participants in the race seemed completely supportive. Oddly, it was the race director who had the problem.
