6. Intersectionality and Running

This week we chat with Olivia Levy and Kahle Richardson, two BIPOC runners in the Toronto running community, about the social intersectionality of gender, race, and class in running. Olivia and Kahle may both be runners of color, but they have their own social identities which create a unique running experience. We discuss how the generalization of BIPOC runners in conversations might be leaving out other aspects of their identity.

Within the BIPOC community, we all have different social identities even though we all may be people of color, so that means we all have different experiences within it.

We’ll also discuss how to make running and races more accessible to BIPOC runners and how run crews, race directors, run brands, and others can help.
