Runner's World South Africa - - HUMAN RACE -

AF­TER THE DOM­I­NA­TION OF OVER­SEAS ATH­LETES IN THE EARLY 2000’S, SOUTH AFRICAN MALE ATH­LETES HAVE NOW WON THE

LAST SEVEN COM­RADES MARATHONS IN A ROW. THANKS TO CARO­LINE WOSTMANN (2015), CHARNE BOSMAN (2016) AND ANN ASH­WORTH THIS YEAR, SOUTH AFRICA’S ATH­LETES ARE NOW START­ING TO TAKE CON­TROL OF THE WOMEN’S RACE.

THE LAST TIME A SOUTH AFRICAN WON THE WOMEN’S RACE BE­FORE 2015 WAS IN 1998, WHEN RAE BISSCHOFF WON HER ONLY TI­TLE.
