What year did the Boston Marathon start?
Marathon pioneer Liane Winter has passed away
The former marathon world record holder had suffered from multiple sclerosis since the mid-1990s and was temporarily dependent on a wheelchair. Liane Winter wrote marathon history: On April 21, 1975, she became the first German woman (and the first non-American woman at all!) To not only win the famous Boston Marathon, but also ran a world best time of 2:42:24 hours (world records in the marathon were only officially introduced later).
Liane Winter was also the first German woman to finish a marathon under three hours. Until then, Anne Pede-Erdkamp held the German record with 3:07:26 hours, but just two weeks later, Liane Winter's world record in Dülmen was further beaten by Christa Vahlensieck (2:40:15 hours). Liane Winter started for VfL Wolfsburg at that time and worked there as a commercial clerk at Volkswagen AG. She was looked after and trained by "running doctor" Ernst van Aaken (Waldniel). In her career, Liane Winter competed in a total of 50 marathons up to the age of 50, was a German marathon champion in 1973 and set several German records (including in the 10 km road run with 37:16 minutes in 1977). She began her sporting career in cross-country skiing in the 1960s as a ranger for her hometown club Eintracht Wetzlar.
