Women and RunCzech in 2017
Women are embracing the sport of running at a phenomenal rate. In RunCzech we agree with this 100%. Our fate is firmly in the hands of women. At least when we talk about running.
As we see more women rising through the corporate ranks; as we see more women becoming enterpreneurs; as we see more women becoming politically active and otherwise asserting themselves in society, it made sense to us that they should have their own race. The adidas Women’s race 5km. It is a chance to celebrate sisterhood, athleticism, and the determination of women around the globe. Watching 2 091 women racing through the streets of Prague, you cannot help but think that they are becoming an ever-greater force in the world. And that the world might be a better place because of it.
