Jozi runners have another chance to #WinBig with PUMA this coming Saturday 03 September 2022 at the 5K PUMA NITRO Demo Run #2 that will take place at the Ruimsig Stadium at 08:00.

 

“The 5K PUMA NITRO Demo Run is the perfect opportunity for Jozi runners to #WearTest PUMA’s newest range of PUMA NITRO running shoes,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director of Stillwater Sports and Founder of the Absa RUN YOUR CITY Series. “The Demo Run is open to runners of all ages and is free of charge, but runners do need to sign up via our social media platforms. Be sure to arrive early so that you can choose the PUMA shoes that you’d like to put to the test. Once you’ve completed the 5K run, collect, and complete a lucky draw ticket that you’ll need to hand back to our team. The lucky draw will take place directly after the run. There are awesome PUMA prizes up for grabs including a PUMA Hamper to the value of R 5 000 and a pair of PUMA NITRO Running Shoes. PUMA’s technical team will also be on hand to answer product related questions and offer support.”

 

“The Absa RUN YOUR CITY Series running community can look forward to a fun-filled morning with likeminded individuals at the 5K PUMA NITRO Demo Run,” continues Meyer. “The Demo Run is the perfect leg-loosener as we build up to the much-anticipated Absa RUN YOUR CITY JOBURG 10K that will take place for the first time in two years (due to the pandemic) on National Heritage Day, 24 September 2022. Jozi runners sign up today and join in on the celebrations as we prepare to #RunYourCity.”
