“The Absa RYC WARM UP RUNS powered by PUMA NITRO are a fun way for runners to keep fit and test their speed while catching up with other RYC community members,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director of Stillwater Sports and Founder of the Absa RYC Series.

“Taking place before work on a Friday morning, the warm up runs are the perfect start to the day and the weekend. We are excited to invite runners from Cape Town, Durban and Joburg to join in on the fun.”
