The outdoors are gatekept. This isn’t new news – outdoor sports primarily consist of white, cisgender people. Recently, gravel has made quite the splash as a sport working towards diversity. This week, Kathryn and Kristi talk to Elizabeth Allen about her experience as a black outdoor athlete.
As an athlete that enjoys sports from outdoor climbing to mountain biking, Elizabeth shares what it is like to be a POC in these spaces. Sharing stories of the exclusivity of certain sports, Elizabeth offers tools for how we can all work to eliminate the barriers POC may face in the outdoor sports realm.
