Returning to the Mother City on Wednesday, 09 August 2017 (National Women’s Day) the Totalsports Women’s Race will proudly showcase the true beauty of Cape Town while transporting runners and walkers on a 5km and 10km journey where they will #RunForLife in support of PinkDrive.

According to Michael Meyer, Managing Director of Stillwater Sports, 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.  “Entrants will be guided past a number of Cape Town’s iconic landmarks before finishing in front of Cape Town’s City Hall where Nelson Mandela gave his first speech as a free man.  The intense City Ambiance, the beautiful route and lively on route entertainment are sure to make the Totalsports Women’s Race a fun filled Women’s Day celebration like no other.  Runners and walkers can look forward to a fantastic day out with family and friends.”
