Enter now to secure your spot on the start line and in the lucky draw. Join us as we return to Joburg on National Heritage Day ready to #RunYourCity #WithCheryWithLove.”

 

“We experienced the excitement of the Absa RUN YOUR CITY Series first-hand at the Cape Town event in May and the Durban event in July.  Although two very different cities, we were blown away by the excitement on both occasions. We love that it’s a national series that is enjoyed by all in South Africa and we cannot wait to see Jozi runners in action,” says Mr Tony Liu, Chery South Africa Executive Deputy GM.

 

“We would once again like to congratulate Ziningi Sibisi on winning the Chery Tiggo 4 Pro Urban at the Absa RUN YOUR CITY DURBAN 10K in July. Ziningi’s reaction to winning the vehicle was truly heart-warming,” says Bianca van Staden, National Marketing and Brand Manager of Chery South Africa. “Consisting of SUVs, we are confident that our model range will complement the lifestyles of active families. Our goal is to help create memorable experiences for all South Africans #WithCheryWithLove #FunToDrive, so we are extremely excited to be giving away another Chery Tiggo 4 Pro Urban vehicle, this time at the Joburg race. The tag line for the Chery Tiggo 4 Pro Urban is ‘First Impressions Last’, this is perfectly suited both for the vehicle and the Absa RUN YOUR CITY Series. We look forward to sharing in the excitement both with the competition winner and all entrants taking part on the day.”

 

Ziningi Sibisi recently took ownership of her brand-new Chery Tiggo 4 Pro Urban that she won at the Absa RUN YOUR CITY DURBAN 10K on Sunday 10 July 2022. To view a short video of the vehicle handover CLICK HERE
