Parents can enjoy the action of both the Absa RUN YOUR CITY JOBURG 10K and Absa Durban 10K CITYSURFRUN together with their children thanks to THULE, a proud partner of these two major city events.
THULE helps to transport valuables safely, easily and in style, enabling sporting and adventure enthusiasts to live an active lifestyle.
“As a brand we believe in the value of an active life whether you’re in the city or the great outdoors,” says Jamie Owen, Marketing Manager of SA Sport & Cargo (distributor of Thule products in SA). “It’s fantastic that the Absa RUN YOUR CITY JOBURG 10K and Absa Durban 10K CITYSURFRUN are bringing active people and families together to explore their city. As parents it’s not always possible to juggle training and family life, but why should you? With THULE’s Vea Backpack and URBAN Glide Stroller parents can enjoy an active lifestyle together with their children.”
“The backpack is versatile as it can be worn as a duffel, sling pack or backpack,” continues Owen. “It’s perfect for people who need to train before and/or after work as it has a dedicated place for your laptop with separate compartments for your shoes and a spare set of clothes. The stroller is perfect for active parents as it transitions from an everyday stroller with a pivoting front wheel to a running stroller with a fixed front wheel. Runners and walkers can therefor enjoy both the Absa RUN YOUR CITY JOBURG 10K and Absa Durban 10K CITYSURFRUN with their children.”
THULE will be running a few exciting competitions where five lucky entrants will receive a gold package entry into the Absa RUN YOUR CITY JOBURG 10K or Absa Durban 10K CITYSURFRUN as well as a Thule Vea 21L backpack. Each winner will also have the opportunity to run with a THULE stroller so that they can explore their city with their child.

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 Absa 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 Absa RUN YOUR CITY JOBURG 10K 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.
