Katherine Switzer running the 1967 Boston marathon, five years before women were officially allowed to, after applying under the name K. V. Switzer. She finished in 4 hours 20 minutes, about an hour behind the fastest female, Bobbi Gibb, the first woman ever to have run the entire Boston marathon, who ran unregistered.
Race official Jock Semple is seen here trying to forcibly remove her from the race, while her boyfriend, #390, shoves him aside.
