    Considering that it is almost exclusively black people that win these races, is it fair to pit them against white people?

    Indeed and that's not my problem. Canada should do more to promote equality amongst their First Nations.

    You could say the same thing about swimming and horse racing, so does that mean its fair to pit them against black people?

    Anyway, there's nothing unfair about it. Everyone participating aren't in no way whatsoever discriminated, hence, the results will be all due to your own physical abilities.

    how do propose segregating based on race? What about someone who is half black, a quarter black etc? It's totally impractical

    plus any differences due to race will be tiny compared to say, the difference between men and women, the two genders are built totally differently

    Is it wrong to hate a certain race? I enjoy running 5k's but my friend is trying to get me to do another marathon and I really don't like them.

    If someone is more athletically fit and they win then they deserve it, that's the point of these races. So what if their race is different.

    It's not skin colour that determines any biological advantage, it's the presence of particular alleles that are found in higher frequencies in particular geographic locations. Take distance running. Top runners tend to come from arid, high altitude countries (Horn of Africa, Atlas Mountains, Western China etc.) rather than those with black populations.
