It was really great to connect with Aidan and to find out about a great community of runners. If you’ve not visited the site before, it’s well worth a visit.

    Has there actually been anyone, in the history of recorded humankind, who has actually said “Every Ironman has to be a Guy”?

    Forgive my naivetΓ¨, I’ve just never heard that string of words put together. Well, maybe in some extremist religions that would be said, but…

      I guess Aidan was just trying to think of a catchy headline πŸ™‚

      RunSociety is based in Singapore and is mainly aimed at an Asian audience, so it could be down to language issues and a play on words. Many Singaporeans speak Malay, Tamil or Mandarin at home, and then have a bilingual education in one of these languages and English.

      According to the World Economic Forum Gender Gap Report published towards the end of 2015, Singapore ranked 54/145 countries with countries such as Rwanda, the Philippines and Laos ranked more highly in terms of gender equality, so women taking part in sports (outside fo professional athletes) is a relative new phenomenon in Singapore.

    That’s a great headline! One to raise at least a smile.
    I read the article – brilliant advocacy for the sport!
