Date: Every second Friday (23 Oct to 4 Dec)
Hot on the heels of the Run Your City Series (RYCS) Heritage Day Virtual Run, event organisers Stillwater Sports have launched the Friday 5K Pop Up Run Series powered by PUMA. The Series will consist of four bi-weekly 5km runs that will start and finish at a designated venue in Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg. The venue location will be ‘released’ closer to each run.
Entry is free of charge, but runners do need to sign up as each Pop-Up Run is limited to 70 runners (per city) to adhere to Government Regulations. The first 50 entries (per run and per city) will receive a limited-edition RYCS t-shirt.
Prizes up for grabs
Runners who complete all four runs stand a chance to win their share in spectacular sponsor prizes. These include:
- 1x VIP GOLD Entry and a trip (for two) to a 2021 RYCS Event of your choice (Cape Town 12K CITYRUN, Durban 10K CITYRUN or Joburg 10K CITYRUN) worth R10 000 (flights and accommodation included).
- A pair of PUMA Ultra Ride Running Shoes worth R2000 (per City).
For a touch of flair, each run will have a colour theme with the event t-shirt correlating with that theme.
Runners who take part in all four runs will receive an RYCS medal and headscarf after the final run. If a runner cannot make it to the designated venue or if we reach capacity, they can participate virtually. They won’t receive the RYCS t-shirt, but they will be eligible to win sponsor prizes.
Timing, results and entries
All registered runners will receive a results link to which they need to load their results manually.
Runners can track their run either with a sports watch, fitness tracker, their mobile phones or Strava. Results will sit in a national leader board (per run) on www.runyourcityseries.com.
