Description

Everyday, in many cities around the world, women lace up their running shoes and head out the door, to run in the streets and parks of their community. However, in Saudi Arabia this is a relatively new concept for women. Up until 2013, girls in public schools weren’t allowed to do sport at school and you rarely saw women exercising in public. The reason was a restriction placed on women doing physical activity outside of their homes in open, public spaces. But things have changed. For the past year or two, it’s become a common sight to see women and girls running, walking and cycling in public. I met up with a women’s running group called Bliss Run in Jeddah and they shared stories about what it has meant to them to be able to exercise in public.
