Female road race finishers dominate finish lines across the USA

In 1990, only 25 percent of road race finishers in the US were women? Today, females make up more than half of road race finishers in the United States.

In 2017, more women than men finished road races in the U.S., and the most popular race distance was the 5K, according to Running USA, an organization that tabulates road racing statistics. On average, 59 percent of participants in a road race are women, and 41 percent are men.

“The women’s running boom of more than 15 years ago remains healthy and strong,” commented Running USA CEO Rich Harshbarger. “This is an asset for our sport and a trend that we expect to continue.”
