More than 10,000 girls and women flocked to Addis Ababa’s Atlas Hotel area to take part in the 5k Run on 12 March 2017. As part of the United Nations’ commemoration of the International Women’s Day, the event organized by the UN in collaboration with the Great Ethiopia Run was held under the theme ‘Because She Can”.


As those images captured by photographer Maheder Haileselassie with her iPhone shows, groups of friends, colleagues and families were having some fun while running together and dancing along the way.
