It is estimated that at the current pace it would take Africa 122 years to achieve gender equality. But if we race toward this goal together, we could achieve this quicker.

The Race to Equality is a movement that calls for solidarity against discrimination. Hosted annually to mark International Women's Day, the half-marathon is open to everyone who shares in the vision of building a gender equal and fair world.

This fun, yet thoughtful initiative is brought to you by the Gender Equality, Wellness and Leadership (GEWAL) Unit of the Motsepe Foundation. The Motsepe Foundation is one of the largest philanthropic organisations on the continent and is in partnership with Athletics South Africa to celebrate the diversity among us and #BreakTheBias.
