The organisers of the FNB Joburg 10K CITYRUN and the FNB Durban 10K CITYSURFRUN are excited to welcome Becks Blue as an official partner in 2017.

“We are proud to welcome Becks Blue as a partner of both the FNB Joburg 10K CITYRUN and the FNB Durban 10K CITYSURFRUN,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director of Stillwater Sports.  “Highlights on the road running calendar, both the FNB Joburg 10K CITYRUN and the FNB Durban 10K CITYSURFRUN emphasise the true beauty of its host city while encouraging an active, healthy lifestyle.  With Becks as a partner, runners and walkers can celebrate their 10km achievement ‘guilt free’ by enjoying an ice cold beer in the finish area.”

“With Becks Blue consumers can enjoy a great tasting beer, without the alcohol,” says Vilosha Soni, Marketing Manager Beck’s Blue.  “Becks is for the consumer that enjoys life to the fullest without compromise.  Our beer is light in kilojoules and full in flavour giving those who live an active lifestyle the great taste of beer in a non-alcoholic choice.  The FNB Joburg 10K CITYRUN and the FNB Durban 10K CITYSURFRUN are two typical events in which we expect to find Beck’s Blue lovers.  What better way to celebrate these two major cities than to explore the streets of Johannesburg and Durban followed by an ice cold Beck’s Blue afterwards.  After all FREEDOM TASTES GOOD!”

About the FNB Joburg 10K CITYRUN sponsorship:

FNB Business is proud to be the title sponsor of the FNB Joburg 10K CITYRUN.  This sponsorship forms part of our ongoing strategy to support local and community events that focus on a healthy lifestyle and family involvement. Road running is an inclusive sport that allows us to engage with a larger audience and support a sporting disciplines that advance our commitment to building, enduring and rewarding relationships with communities we are a part of. We believe in supporting a race that encourages people to run and know their city; a race that strives to re-invent how people perceive and experience the city centre. The FNB Bank City buildings are well-known and iconic buildings in the Johannesburg CBD and the precinct was recently revamped in 2015 with three lifestyle concepts of Work, Eat & Play in mind. For many years it has been viewed as traditional banking headquarters; however the revamp has positively changed the experience of the precinct. Sponsoring the FNB Joburg 10K CITYRUN is aligned to our belief in the importance of rejuvenating and reviving the city centre so it remains relevant and an important part of Johannesburg’s Heritage.
