“We’re excited to invite Durban residents to join us at four fun filled RYC WARM UP RUNS, fueled by PUMA NITRO as we prepare for the 2023 Absa RUN YOUR CITY DURBAN 10K,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director of Stillwater Sports and Founder of the Absa RUN YOUR CITY Series. “The goal is to give runners and walkers the perfect opportunity to #WearTest PUMA’s newest range of running shoes before race day. When these runners go instore, they will know exactly which PUMA shoe best suits their running style.”

“The WARM UP RUNS are also the perfect ‘get together’ for runners and walkers,” continues Meyer. “You get to catch up with old friends and make new friends. It’s also the perfect way to test your fitness. Once the 5km run is completed, be sure to collect your lucky draw ticket from the event team. There are fantastic prizes up for grabs compliments of PUMA South Africa. Join us in Durban as we prepare to #RunYourCity #fueledbyNITRO.”
