The streets of Johannesburg were buzzing with excitement on Friday, 09 August 2013 when a record field of 7734 runners gathered to celebrate National Women’s Day at the much loved Totalsports Ladies Race.

Nedbank runner, Cornelia Joubert set the course on fire in the 10km Totalsports Ladies Race crossing the finish line in an astounding 37minutes55seconds.  According to Joubert, it was a tough 10km race.  “This is the 5th time that I take part in the Totalsports Ladies Race.  The competition was tough, while the route was really difficult, featuring more hills than last year.  The weather also didn’t make racing any easier.  I’m happy to finally take 1st place. The event was well organised and there was a great vibe amongst runners.  I really enjoyed taking part,” says Joubert.  Christine Kalmer came in second, while Dianna Dalula finished third.


Participants could choose between a 5km run/fun walk and a 10km run/fun walk.
