Equalise cross-country races for men and women in England

Reason for signing

  • I couldn't believe it when I realised that race distances are still split on gender lines. I consider this insidious discrimination which contributes to young women underestimating their abilities. What an awful disadvantage to be told from a young age by society that you are unable to perform based purely on your gender.
