Countdown to Friday 5K Pop Up Run #2 begins

Nov 2, 2020 | Latest News

Excitement builds as runners prepare for this coming Friday’s (06 November 2020) Friday 5K Pop Up Run #2 powered by PUMA.

Consisting of four bi-weekly 5km runs that will start and finish at a designated venue in Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg, each Pop-Up Run is limited to 70 runners (per city) to adhere to Government Regulations with the first 50 entries (per run and per city) receiving a limited-edition Run Your City Series (RYCS) t-shirt.  Runners who complete all four runs stand a chance to win their share in spectacular sponsor prizes.

“If a runner cannot make it to the designated venue or if we reach capacity, he/she is welcome to take part virtually,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director of Stillwater Sports.  “In other words, they can run anywhere, take photographs and share them to social media.  They won’t receive the RYCS t-shirt, but they will be eligible to win sponsor prizes.  This week’s colour theme is orange.”

“We are excited to continue the spirit of the RYCS by hosting the Friday 5K Pop Up Run Series powered by PUMA,” says PUMA Marketing Director Brett Bellinger.  “With four runs taking place bi-weekly from October to December, runners are granted the perfect opportunity to catch up with like-minded individuals while enjoying a 5km run.  We would, however   like to remind all runners to please adhere to legal Government Regulations for exercise.”
