Runners prepare for a ‘blue themed’ Friday 5K Pop Up Run #3 powered by PUMA

The Friday 5K Pop Up Run #3 powered by PUMA will take place this coming Friday (20 November) and the color of the day will be blue!

Consisting of four bi-weekly 5km runs that will start and finish at a designated venue in Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg, each Pop-Up Run is limited to 70 runners (per city) to adhere to Government Regulations with the first 50 entries (per run and per city) receiving a limited-edition Run Your City Series (RYCS) t-shirt.   This coming Friday runners will receive a funky blue t-shirt.  Runners who complete all four runs stand a chance to win their share in spectacular sponsor prizes.

“I’m not sure who is looking forward to the Friday 5K Pop Up Run #3 powered by PUMA the most, our event team or the RYCS community,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director of Stillwater Sports.  “The Friday 5K Pop Up Run Campaign has given us the opportunity to interact with the running community, while adhering to government regulations for exercise of course.  The first two runs were extremely well supported.  We look forward to continuing the trend at this coming Friday’s event.  Remember this week’s colour theme is blue.”

“We realize that the Pop Up Runs tend to reach capacity really quickly, for that reason there is a virtual option for runners that could not sign up in time or that cannot make it to the designated venue on the day,” continues Meyer.  “These runners can run anywhere, take photographs and share them to social media.  They won’t receive the RYCS t-shirt, but they will be eligible to win sponsor prizes.”
