Runners Celebrate National Women's Day on Social Media

National #WomensDay2017 has come and gone, and in anticipation (and celebration) of the day, we asked our running community who they admire most.

Many runners talked about friends club mates who motivate them, while others cast their net a bit wider to event organisers, mothers and elites they look up to...

Cousins that run together, have fun together. no wonder "Miss Mathabo" nominated her cousin Dinah as her inspirational running woman.


Nicky Collins loves sharing her running passion with others, so who better to coax BFF Nwabisa into active wear ;)

We even heard from American ultra distance runner and 2 x world champ Camille Herron, whose inspirational woman is no other than her mom!

Trail and ultra runner - and familiar face in the Cape Town running community - Sue Ullyett had quite list of inspirational women on her mind, including running great Elana Meyer, as well as celeb and honorary giraffe Liezel van der Westhuizen, and Phindi Gule.
