Hit the New Year running in preparation for the second annual FNB Cape Town 12 ONERUN that will take the city by storm on Sunday, 15 May 2016.
According to Sue Ullyett, event manager for the FNB Cape Town 12 ONERUN, the event is all about having as much fun as possible before, during and after the run. “Starting at Woodbridge Island in Milnerton, the route hugs the coastline, through the harbour and continues up Adderley Street through the heart of the Mother City, before finishing in Bree Street outside the FNB offices at Portside. The vibe, fresh sea breeze, on route activations and finish line celebrations make for an exciting experience that will leave runners wanting more. Runners, walkers, family and friends absolutely have to be part of this iconic event.”
