Total Sports Women’s Race

August 9

Entries are open for the 2017 Totalsports Women’s Race, South Africa’s largest Women’s Day celebration that encourages entrants to ‘Run For Life’ in support of PinkDrive.

Taking place in Durban (Sunday, 16 July 2017), Johannesburg (Wednesday, 09 August 2017) and Cape Town (Wednesday, 09 August 2017) mothers, daughters, sisters, family members and friends are invited to run for themselves, for others, for fighters or for victors.  Support PinkDrive by taking part in the 2017 Totalsports Women’s Race in your city, the city that you love.

“We believe our theme this year; ‘Run For Life’ has a strong message with a single minded ‘call to action’ that aims to unite women across South Africa to celebrate life,” says Charmaine Claasens, Head Of Marketing Totalsports.  “We believe sport has the power to change lives.  The Totalsports Women’s Race provides us with the opportunity to celebrate, educate and inspire mothers, sisters and daughters to take action and raise awareness around breast cancer.  We are excited to welcome Nike as a new brand partner in 2017.  Together with Nike and Stillwater Sports we look forward to creating a memorable event experience.”

The organisers of the Totalsports Women’s Race have introduced an additional R20 000 incentive for the female runner that runs a sub 33min 10km in Johannesburg or Cape Town on Wednesday, 09 August 2017 (National Women’s Day).

“The incentive is in addition to the existing overall prize purse of R41 200 per event of which the winner will take home R10 000,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director of Stillwater Sports.  “The incentive applies to the female athlete with the fastest time.  This means that should the winner of the 2017 Totalsports Women’s Race (10km) in Johannesburg or Cape Town run a sub 33min race, her prize tally will be a whopping overall total of R30 000.  This is the first time since the event’s inception in 2002 that we are offering such an incentive.  We look forward to some exciting racing and fast times on Wednesday, 09 August.”

A popular women’s day celebration, the Totalsports Women’s Race encourages entrants to #RunForLife in support of PinkDrive.

Christine Kalmer will be one of the runners to look out for in the Johannesburg race.  “I love that the race is for women only,” says Kalmer.  “I’m looking forward to running through Johannesburg with thousands of women.  You can feel the passion on event day.  It’s heartwarming to see how the women encourage and support each other throughout the race.   I’m looking forward to running over the Nelson Mandela Bridge, a Joburg landmark.  My goal is to run a competitive race and a solid time.  The R20 000 incentive is great and will definitely be motivation to run extra fast.  I’m not sure whether I’ll be able to run a sub 33min on race day though, as my personal best is 33:53.”

In Cape Town Nolene Conrad will be at the front of the field. Conrad also enjoys the fact that this is a women’s only race.  “The Totalsports Women’s Races are well organized and the prize purse on offer is really good,” says Conrad.  “I love the vibrant, energetic atmosphere of this race.  My goal is to run a fast time.  I am coming from Europe where I have been competing in a few track races.  My fitness level looks good right now so I feel confident that I can go under my PB.  It just depends on the variables that I cannot control, like the weather.  The R20 000 incentive is absolutely awesome and I commend the race organisers for that.  Instead of just winning races, we need to encourage runners to run fast.”
