The organizers of the RUN YOUR CITY (RYC) Series are proud to welcome the City of Joburg as a partner of the exciting 2021 JOBURG 10K CITYRUN Virtual Edition that will take place nationally on Friday 24 September in celebration of Heritage Day!
“The City of Joburg is a valuable partner of the JOBURG 10K CITYRUN, and this year we are extremely proud to extend the partnership to the 2021 Virtual Edition,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director of Stillwater Sports and Founder of the RYC Series. “As it’s the JOBURG 10K CITYRUN Virtual Edition, runners from across South Africa are invited to unite in the spirit of camaraderie, pride and celebration as we celebrate National Heritage Day together. South Africans from all walks of life are encouraged to celebrate their culture and the diversity of their beliefs and traditions. Let’s #RunJoburg together!”
According to Councilor Margaret Arnolds, City of Joburg Member of the Mayoral Committee (MMC) for Community Development, the City of Joburg is a proud partner of the JOBURG 10K CITYRUN. “Not only does this partnership speak to the City’s mandate of creating healthier and more active communities, but also to provide the opportunity to all people, young and old, fit or unfit to run or walk in celebration of Heritage Day! The partnership has annually seen 10 000 participants in the streets of the inner-city of Johannesburg, being active in their togetherness. The 2021 race will only be different in being virtual, hosting more than 15 000 participants from across the country, bearing the name of the spectacular City of Joburg! Heritage Day is there to celebrate and look beyond cultural boundaries, we would like to encourage runners to use the JOBURG 10K CITYRUN Virtual Edition to celebrate life and unity within diversity!”
