Boston Marathon: Transgender runners OK

However, runners have been asked in the past to compete in the marathon with the same gender identify which they qualified.

"We register people as they specify themselves to be".

All told, it took Gapin three years running as an openly transgender woman before she qualified for Boston, a goal she set seven years ago. Olympic officials issued new rules in 2016 saying trans women can compete if their testosterone levels stay beneath a certain limit, and many professional races now follow similar rules.

In 1967, a Boston Marathon official almost dragged a woman off the course after she managed to enter the men's-only race, but now, five decades later, race officials are publicly stating transgender runners can compete using the gender they identify with.

The association said it doesn't have an explicit policy on transgender athletes. But that has not stopped controversy from creeping in, both in states with pro-transgender policies - as in CT, when track star Andraya Yearwood was criticized after she won two Class M state titles - and those without them - as in Texas, where transgender wrestler Mack Beggs was booed for winning a state title, despite it being the fault of the state legislature and the University Interscholastic League that Beggs was forced to wrestle against girls. One common argument is that transgender women have a physical advantage.

"To be able to experience it as me was really, really important", she told CBS News about registering as a woman.

Right now, Holtzclaw said she is just excited to take a week off from running but she was quick to point out that she is open to running more marathons in the future.

Bob Girandola, associate professor in the Department of Human Biology at the University of Southern California, observed that if transgender runners produce higher levels of testosterone than their female competitors, that's an issue.

"The study of individuals that have had artificial manipulation of their hormone levels - and how that influences, long term, their performance in athletics and other areas - really is largely unknown, and that includes the imprinting that occurs at the genetic level in every cell and every tissue in the body", Dr. Hruz said.

"That's a misconception and a myth", said Dr Alex Keuroghlian, director of education and training programs at the Fenway Institute, a health and advocacy center for Boston's LGBT community. They simply take what's written at face value. "There's no physiologic advantage to being assigned male at birth".

"It's kind of murky how people handle it", she said, according to the Herald.
