Women And Trail Running: The Long And Short Of It

This is a topic that is near and dear to my heart, so I would love to hear your thoughts. I want to know why female participation is lower in ultras compared to shorter distances. Are women more fearful to run a long way? Is ultrarunning marketed to a more male audience, or branded as a male sport? Do women feel like they are physically unable to run extended distances? Do they think they don’t have enough time because of work or children? Or, maybe, just maybe, females are quite happy with running shorter distances, that the participation numbers above represent what women want to do, rather than what they choose to do. Also, since Ellie’s article and comments conversation, has the climate of trail and ultrarunning for women changed? What do you see that’s different today? And what hasn’t changed? Tell me what you think!
