Run Your City Series challenges running club members to RUN.CLIMB.RUN!

The Run Your City Series (RYC Series) is challenging its running club members (on Strava) to climb at least 750m over as many runs as they would like from 19 – 25 April 2021.  The challenge is aptly named the RYC Series RUN.CLIMB.RUN CHALLENGE.

“The RYC Series’ second challenge for club members is designed to get runners out of their comfort zones,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director of Stillwater Sports.  “The challenge will run from 05:00 on Monday 19 April, until 23:00 on Sunday 25 April 2021.  Runners need to clock at least 750m of climbing (or more) during this period and can run as often as they would like to.  Run hill repeats in your neighbourhood or go for a scenic mountain adventure.  This challenge does not require speed.  All runners who successfully complete the challenge will go into the lucky draw and stand a chance to win a pair of PUMA NITRO running shoes to the value of R4000.  May the best climber win.”

More about the PUMA NITRO Range:

Years of research and testing have gone into five new key styles—Deviate, Deviate Elite, Velocity, Liberate, and Eternity—all featuring PUMA’s cutting-edge supercritical foam technology, NITRO.  NITRO foam makes the shoes extremely lightweight and responsive, to help runners use less energy and run comfortably so that they can reach their goals.  For more information on the PUMA Nitro Range CLICK HERE
