Winter, trails, darkness, and all the weather.
One last hurrah before the end of the year. Runners, get ready for a fun and festive holiday treat along the trails of Squaxin Park.
Transvulcania La Palma on the Spanish Canary Island off the coast of Morocco, Africa happened last week, May 4-6, 2023. Let’s take a look at the gender splits of their various race offerings. And yes, I am late again and only have finisher numbers.
I don’t have the numbers for their youth or kids races, but of the 4 races above there were a total of 1604 finishers and 412 were women, that’s 25.7%.
I don’t have anything smart to say anymore, but I wonder if there any sports were these percentages are reversed? And to the people who say “These numbers are improving and not that bad.” I would ask when they were the last time in a group setting were they were the minority and how they felt about it.
