Amelework Bosho ran to victory at the Nedbank Runified Breaking Barriers 50 km Ultramarathon in Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality on Sunday, 6 March 2022.

Bosho’s time of 3:04:58 just missed Irvette van Zyl’s world record time of 3:04:24, which she set last year.

This year, a fast start saw the record slipping away in the last 5km after both van Zyl and Kenyan Shelmith Muriuki dropped back in the final stages allowing Nedbank Running Club teammate, Bosho to take victory.

With Muriuki in second and van Zyl closing the podium in third, the Nedbank Running Club reigned supreme with a 1-2-3 finish female division.

“Today we witnessed world-class performances from our South African athletes, and we are proud to incentivize them for their achievements. Nedbank remains a proud supporter of running and the success of Breaking Barriers has set a high benchmark of what the Nedbank Runified series stands for and what is to come,” says Nthabiseng Matshekga.

As Breaking Barriers ends on a high-note, Nedbank Running Club swiftly moves into its third year, Nedbank Runified is encouraging more runners to join the movement to better mental health under its new meaning, ‘runify’.

Between April and October, Nedbank will host group runs across South Africa, and we encourage everyone to get involved. Sign up to the Nedbank Running Club on Strava for more information.
