The Totalsports Women’s Race taking place on National Women’s Day (Friday 9 August) across three major cities will boast a combined prize purse of R123 600.

The annual Women’s Day Race taking place in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban is a celebration that encourages athletes to run united in support of PinkDrive because they are #StrongerTogether.

“We can’t wait to welcome runners and walkers to the Totalsports Women’s Race start line,” says Agne du Plessis, Stillwater Sports’ general manager for road running.

For the first time since the event’s inception in 2001, South Africa’s largest Women’s Day celebration will be hosted on one day across three major cities.

“Although a mass participation road run, the race also attracts South Africa’s leading ladies and up-and-coming stars. As motivation to continue pushing the boundaries, we are excited to offer a combined prize purse of R123 600, that’s a total of R 41 200 per city,” she adds.

Prize money will be allocated to the top eight finishers in the open category with the winner taking home R10 000.

“We are proud to announce that the top eight runners in the junior category will also be awarded for their efforts. The top three finishers in the age categories 40-49, 50-59, 60-69 and 70+ will also not go home empty-handed.

“There is never a shortage of excitement at the race. We invite runners and walkers to celebrate National Women’s Day among thousands of like-minded individuals,” continues Du Plessis.

She encourages entrants to visit the PinkDrive #Shop4Cancer to #PimpYourselfPink and help spread the message that early detection can save lives.

Each entrant will receive a fitted event T-shirt, a Totalsports head-scarf and a finisher’s bracelet while being treated to an entertaining route experience with refreshment points.
