The 5K PUMA NITRO Demo Run #3 heads to Benoni Recreation Park on Saturday 10 September 2022 and Jozi runners are invited to join in on the fun as part of the build up to the iconic Absa RUN YOUR CITY JOBURG 10K that will take Heritage Day celebrations to the next level in 2022.

 

“We’re just over two weeks away from the 2022 Absa RUN YOUR CITY JOBURG 10K that will take place on Heritage Day (Saturday 24 September),” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director of Stillwater Sports and Founder of the Absa RUN YOUR CITY Series. “This will be the first time in two years that the event will take place in Joburg due to the pandemic. To say that we are excited to be back in the City of Gold would be an understatement. The 5K PUMA NITRO Demo Run is the perfect opportunity to complete a fun 5km run with like-minded individuals. The goal is to get Jozi runners excited and ready for the 2022 Absa RUN YOUR CITY JOBURG 10K. What makes the 5K PUMA NITRO Demo Run extra special is that runners get the unique opportunity to put PUMA’s newest range of PUMA NITRO running shoes to the test. PUMA’s technical team will also be on hand to answer product related questions and offer support.”

 

“This will be the second last Demo Run before race day and we would like to invite all runners to join us,” continues Meyer. “The Demo Run is open to runners of all ages and is free of charge, but you do need to sign up via our social media platforms. Be sure to arrive early to secure your desired pair of PUMA NITRO Running Shoes. Runners can look forward to enjoying the perfect leg-loosener as we build up to one of Jozi’s most iconic 10km mass participation road races. Sign up today and get ready to #RunPuma when you #RunYourCity.”
