Runner's World (UK) - - Human Race -

I re­fer to a let­ter you pub­lished (RW, Nov 2016) from a run­ner who com­pleted a six-mile race with his two-year-old daugh­ter in a pushchair. How won­der­ful he must have felt when his daugh­ter was awarded first fe­male. I won­der if the first run­ning fe­male to finish

was sim­i­larly elated? And did the father – let alone the race di­rec­tor – ever think of the safety im­pli­ca­tions of a two-year-old in the mid­dle of a race? So per­haps your read­ers could an­swer the ques­tion – was this a great thing to do, or just plain stupid? Roland Gib­bard, by email
