Revolutionizing the sport of road running since 2015 with the introduction of the Absa CAPE TOWN 12K CITYRUN, the Absa RUN YOUR CITY Series comprises three unique mass participation road running events that also includes the Absa JOBURG 10K CITYRUN (launched in 2016) and Absa DURBAN 10K CITYRUN (launched in 2017).

A diverse road running series, the Absa RUN YOUR CITY Series integrates businesses, families, investment in community, world class achievement and fun for all participants. Placing each host city on a pedestal, iconic landmarks form the foundation of a magnificent route experience that also boasts a feel-good vibe compliments of the city’s leading performing arts groups, refreshments, exciting sponsor activations and enthusiastic support along the way.

Although a mass participation series that encourages runners of all fitness levels to take part, each event also features an elite athlete invitational programme which allows South African athletes to compete against the world’s best on home-soil.    

A firm fixture on the road running calendar, the Absa RUN YOUR CITY Series continues to push the boundaries encouraging all participants to #AbsaRunYourCity


Founded in 2015 South Africa’s most loved 12km road run, the Absa CAPE TOWN 12K CITYRUN has established itself as a ‘proudly South African, proudly Cape Town’ must do mass participation road running event that celebrates everything Cape Town – the vibe, the city and the people!
