The Fastest Kid: Did you know?
On August 26th (that’s today!), 1973, running phenom Mary Etta Boitana beat 1,500 runners to win California’s historic Dipsea Race. She was ten years old. Being a youngster, she had a 25-minute head start, but the course is a rigorous series of obstacles. The 7.5‑mile race climbs 688 stairs up the side of Mt. Tamalpais then plunges through Muir Woods to the Pacific Ocean at Stinson Beach on numerous singletrack trails. The maze of alternate trails makes race strategy important, and that’s what contributed to Boitana’s win. At age five she won the women’s title, making her a savvy 5‑year veteran by the time she won it all at age ten.
