The organisers of the iconic Absa RUN YOUR CITY (RYC) Series are inviting Capetonians to enjoy an active start to the long weekend by taking on the much-anticipated Absa RYC WARM UP RUN #3 powered by PUMA NITRO at Rondebosch Common (Sawkins Road, Rondebosch) on Thursday 14 April 2022.

 

“We can’t wait to celebrate the start of the long weekend with the Absa RYC Running Community,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director of Stillwater Sports and Founder of the Absa RYC Series. “The 5km run is the perfect ‘active’ social gathering for the Absa RYC Running Community. Runners get to make new friends, while catching up with old friends.

 

No matter how hard you try, this is the one long weekend where you are bound to overindulge at some point, especially if you have a sweet tooth. Why not get ahead of the guilty feelings.”

 

““The WARM UP RUN is free of charge and open to all runners in the Cape Town area,” continues Meyer. “Starting at 06:30, it’s the perfect “active start” to the long weekend. We also have exciting news! All participating runners stand a chance to win their share in spectacular prizes compliments of the event’s footwear and apparel partner, PUMA. Prizes up for grabs will include (but are not limited to) a PUMA hamper to the value of R 5 000, a pair of PUMA NITRO Running Shoes and a selection of PUMA apparel items. Get the weekend off to a great start by joining us at the fun-filled Absa RYC WARM UP RUN #3 powered by PUMA NITRO. Get ready to #RunYourCity and #RunPuma.”
