BONUS! Starting Line 1928: Bjorg Austrheim-Smith

We're excited to bring you a something a little different and let you know about another women-hosted podcast that features women runners. Please enjoy this episode from the podcast Starting Line 1928, which features in-depth interviews with women running pioneers. The episode we chose features ultra legend Bjorg Austrheim-Smith, who is best known for winning the historic Western States 100-mile Endurance Race three times: 1981, 1982, 1983. She began running when she was 35 and a mother of two (she would eventually have three children). Following an interest to be healthy and just get outside and move, she found a talent and passion that culminated in her becoming a champion and a trailblazer.

Starting Line 1928 is an oral history project documenting the lived experiences of women distance running pioneers. A team of freelance historians interviews women who are trailblazers in the sport—with a special emphasis on women of color and others whose voices haven’t been heard as often. The project spans the 20th century, chronicling the individuals who paved the way for a post-Title IX world. Guests have included Olympians, steeplechase pioneers, ultrarunning champions, coaches, and those who fought hard for women to have new opportunities in the sport. The show is a proud recipient of a 2022 Tracksmith Fellowship.
