Close to 13 000 runners and walkers gathered in the streets of Johannesburg and Cape Town on Tuesday 9 August to celebrate National Women’s Day and show their support of PinkDrive at the much anticipated Totalsports Women’s Race.

Starting at Grand Parade, the 10km Totalsports Women’s Race in Cape Town was dominated by Zintle Xiniwe.

“Today’s race was tough,” said Xiniwe. “I was hoping to run a 34-minute race, but the route wasn’t easy because of the hills. It was nice running with the ladies. In other races the men end up pushing you, but today I could cruise. A lot of the supporters en route knew who I was. It meant a lot to have their support. I feel good and will definitely be back next year.”

Xiniwe completed the 10km Totalsports Women’s Race in a lightning fast time of 36 minutes and 8 seconds. Tanith Maxwell came in second, while Tanya Scott finished third.

The Totalsports Women’s Race supports PinkDrive, a non-profit company (NPC) that is committed to improving breast cancer awareness, education and providing and offering free services to the medically uninsured across South Africa.

PinkDrive was present at the Totalsports Women’s Race both in Johannesburg and Cape Town offering free clinical breast examinations and educating on the importance of self-breast examinations.
