the marathon is a solidarity event (with athletes from around the world) to demonstrate the lack of free movement for Palestinians in Gaza under Israeli occupation. If HAMAS bans women from taking part, it won't happen because UNWRA cancelled it rather than agree. What this will show is that HAMAS does not allow free movement for women in Gaza!
