THULE makes it possible for mothers to run the Totalsports Women’s Race with their children in Durban (22 July), Cape Town and Johannesburg (09 August).  This year women are encouraged to ‘Run United’ in support of PinkDrive.

According to Jamie Owen, Marketing Manager of SA Sport & Cargo the distributor of THULE in SA, it means a lot to be associated with an event that attracts people from all walks of life.  “The Totalsports Women’s Race not only encourages an active lifestyle, but it also creates awareness for thousands of women who are affected by breast cancer.  As a brand THULE has always believed in the value of living an active lifestyle. Our products are designed to help active families and outdoor enthusiasts.  This is precisely the type of person that the Totalsports Women’s Race attracts.”

“It is important for events to support a cause,” continues Owen.  “I cannot think of a more fitting cause than PinkDrive.  It’s great that women can “unite” in creating awareness and showing support.  The fact that the run falls on Women’s Day is fitting.  THULE has a range of product that makes training with children easy.    The THULE Urban Glide Stroller makes it easy for moms (and dads) to run with their children.   The stroller is lightweight, while its aerodynamic design allows mom, dad and child to get the most out of their run – on any terrain.”

THULE will be running a number of competitions (pre and post event) where 2018 Totalsports Women’s Race entrants can win fantastic prizes including:  a THULE Vea 25L Backpack, a THULE Lithos Backpack and a THULE Enroute Backpack.
