NEW THIS YEAR: CLYSDALE AND ATHENA RACE DIVISIONS
According to DadHTP, the Athena and Clydesdale categories are really designed to even the playing field as much as possible for men and women with larger builds. It’s not that smaller builds are inherently more athletic or fit; they’re just different. Athena and Clydesdale groupings are just one more way to divide competitors into categories so people are competing against other athletes with similar physical qualities to them (just as they do with gender, age, experience, etc).
