Runners (and walkers) can look forward to an active Women’s Day on Thursday, 09 August 2018 by enjoying a 10km (or 5km) journey through the streets of Cape Town at the 2018 Totalsports Women’s Race in support of PinkDrive.
“The 5km route will feature a few small hills while the 10km route is sure to pose a challenge to runners that wish to race against the clock,” says Agne du Plessis, Stillwater Sports: General Manager Road Running and Athletics. “Both events will start and finish in front of the Cape Town’s City Hall. Other iconic landmarks to look out for will include the Company Gardens, South African National Gallery, South African Jewish Museum and District Six to mention just a few. The calming setting of the Company Gardens, beautiful harbour and stunning Table Bay views at the top of District Six will add a special ambiance to this much anticipated Women’s Day celebration. Runners and walkers can look forward to a fantastic day out with family and friends.”
