Sugar And Spice And Too Nice For The Trails?

Yearly statistics on ultrarunning show that less than 30% of the participants are women. Yes, women are well represented in trail 5k’s and half marathons, but even at the marathon distance on trails, women’s participation drops off rapidly and is very close to that same 30% as noted in ultras, despite women making up close to 50% of road-running fields. Many have speculated about the number of commitments women have, particularly those women with kids, and that lack of time may be issues. Obstacle racing, where the majority of the races are relatively short in both length and actual duration, shows a strikingly similar trend to ultrarunning, with Tough Mudder reporting that approximately 30% of its 1.5 million participants last year were women. It seems that as races get ‘burlier,’ women’s participation falls, regardless of the distance of the race.
