Durban runners invited to join four fun-filled PUMA NITRO DEMO RUNS

Durban runners will get to step into innovation when they #WearTest PUMA’s latest range of running shoes at four fun-filled PUMA NITRO DEMO RUNS that will be hosted in the build up to the much-anticipated Absa RUN YOUR CITY DURBAN 10K. The first PUMA NITRO DEMO RUN will take place this coming Saturday 24 June 2023 and will enjoy an early start at 07h00 at the Sterngrove Sports Field.

“The PUMA NITRO DEMO RUN presents Durban’s vibrant running community with an incredible opportunity to join fellow enthusiasts in a refreshing 5km run or walk, all while experiencing the exceptional performance of PUMA’s remarkable range of running shoes,” shares Michael Meyer, Managing Director of Stillwater Sports and Founder of the Absa RUN YOUR CITY Series. “By personally testing these innovative shoes, participants can discover their ideal fit, supported by PUMA’s expert technical team who will be available at each DEMO RUN to offer invaluable guidance and assist runners in selecting the perfect shoe that complements their unique running style and preferences.”

“The PUMA NITRO DEMO RUN also allows runners to test their fitness, while creating excitement before race day,” continues Meyer. “Runners can use it as a time trial, or just enjoy a leisurely jog. Not only will you get to enjoy a fun 5km with family and friends, but you also get to meet people that share your interest. The DEMO RUNS are free of charge and open to all club and non-club runners and walkers. There are fantastic prizes up for grabs compliments of PUMA South Africa. Be sure to collect your lucky draw ticket once your 5km has been completed. We’d like to invite all residents to lace up a pair of PUMA NITRO running shoes and get ready to #RunYourCity #fueledbyNITRO.”
