Hundreds of runners took part in Tehran's first-ever marathon on Friday April 07,2017
Hundreds of runners took part in Tehran's first-ever marathon on Friday April 07,2017, but many women were outraged to find they could only run a short distance in a closed-off stadium.
While men ran through Iran's capital in the morning, women were allowed to run just 10 kilometres (six miles) in Azadi stadium in the afternoon -- with no male spectators or officials permitted.
Many were baffled by the move, since there are no rules against men and women running together in Iran -- and joggers of both sexes are often seen in parks and public areas.
