The organisers of the Absa Run Your City Series (Absa Cape Town 12 ONERUN, Absa Durban 10K CITYSURFRUN and Absa Joburg 10K CITYRUN) are excited to welcome Heineken® 0.0 as an event sponsor in 2020!

“Heineken® 0.0 ties in perfectly with the Absa Run Your City Series,” says Agne du Plessis, Stillwater Sports Head of Road Running.  “A refreshing alcohol-free beer, Heineken® 0.0 is made from natural ingredients and only contains 69 calories per bottle. It’s the perfect reward for athletes who’d like to enjoy an ice-cold beer after the race, with zero guilt.  #NowYouCan #RunYourCity with Heineken® 0.0.”

“Heineken® 0.0 will allow runners to enjoy the great taste of beer without the alcohol,” says Lauren Muller, Heineken® Marketing Manager, South Africa.  “The Heineken® 0.0 campaign #NowYouCan speaks directly to consumers who are professionals, active parents and the health conscious who can’t drink alcohol or simply do not want it at that moment. Heineken® 0.0 is inclusive of all moments and social occasions that call for a great-tasting beer.  We are proud to partner with the Absa Run Your City Series.  All three races call for a ‘post event’ celebration.  Heineken® 0.0 is the perfect ‘alcohol-free beer’ for that occasion.”
