18. I dont think there are a lot if teenage runners (Edited)

I dont think there are a lot if teenage runners or athletes in general that have transitioned that dont take either a blocker or hormone treatments. I dont have any statistics to back that up though, just my exposure in the community over the years.

It's an interesting question, and I tend to always fall to the rights of the individual first.

Edited to add, to compete in the Olympics you must undergo hormone therapy for at least two years:

In 2003, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) ruled that it was fair for transgender athletes to compete in the Olympics, providing that they underwent hormone replacement therapy for at least two years prior to competition, had genital reconstruction surgery to reflect the gender with which they identified and changed their gender identity on all legal documents. http://www.excellesports.com/news/trans-athletes-unfair-advantage-sports/
