Panel discussion on mental health as a BIPOC runner in 2020 hosted by Carolyn Su and Marcus Brown. The aim for this discussion was to give a platform for BIPOC runners to share about our personal experiences in running, and to not only just provide representation for other BIPOC runners, but to also help broaden the worldview of those already in the majority.
