Set to take the Mother City by storm on Sunday 17 May 2020, the 6th annual Absa Cape Town 12 ONERUN has a special offering for companies that are looking for a fun outdoor team building activity that is guaranteed to encourage a healthy lifestyle.

“The Absa Cape Town 12 ONERUN is the perfect team building activity,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director Stillwater Sports.  “Featuring an unconventional 10km route, entrants are treated to a memorable journey that starts at Woodbridge Island (Milnerton) and finishes in Bree Street in front of the Portside Building.  The route boasts spectacular views, iconic landmarks and live performances by Cape Town’s leading performing arts groups.  Whether running or walking, entrants will be in awe of what the Mother City has to offer.”

“We have an exciting offering for companies that enter ten runners or more,” continues Meyer.  “These companies will receive a 15% discount on their entry fee.  To add to the excitement, why not challenge each other, see who secures the fastest time over 10km or who has the best outfit or dress alike according to a theme.  Memories worth making are worth sharing.  Your company and staff will not be disappointed.”
