In this episode, we are visiting with Molly Peters to talk about her work advocating for equal treatment for women athletes in the sport of cross country. At present, in 2023, men run distances between 8 to 10K and women run distances between 5-6 K. Why is this? Molly Peters is founder of Equal Distance and head coach at Saint Michael’s College in Vermont and is here to help us answer that question.
