“The goal of the Absa RUN YOUR CITY Series Limitless Running Challenge is for runners to complete a distance of 15km or more on Sunday 21 August,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director of Stillwater Sports and founder of the Absa RUN YOUR CITY Series.  “It’s about distance, not speed, so you can run it, or you can walk it. When you’re done be sure to share your activity to the RUN YOUR CITY Series Running Club on Strava within the stipulated time frame. The winner will take home an awesome pair of PUMA NITRO running shoes. We love this challenge because it encourages runners to set a goal, stay motivated and run the distance without limits!”

Remember to record your run using a smartphone (Android or iPhone device) or smart watch (Garmin, TomTom, SUUNTO, Fitbit, Polar etc), and share it (your run, route and photos) to the    RUN YOUR CITY Series Running Club on Strava by no later than 23:00 on Sunday. We look forward to rewarding the Absa RUN YOUR CITY Series’ most passionate runner with a magnificent pair of PUMA NITRO running shoes.”
