“Celebrated nationally, the Absa RUN YOUR CITY Series is a diverse road running series that brings together avid runners, walkers and individuals looking to live healthier lifestyles, all lining up with some of Africa’s greatest distance runners, while promising world-class achievement and fun for all participants,” explains Michael Meyer, Managing Director of Stillwater Sports and Founder of the Absa RUN YOUR CITY Series.
Major city events
“This year we are excited to once again take the action to the streets of the three major cities. Although the emphasis will be placed on hosting a mass participation road race that highlights city landmarks, includes magnificent views and features lively performances from some of the host city’s leading performing arts groups, all three events will also boast an exciting Contender Programme aimed at the racing snakes.”
To qualify for prize money, entrants will need to apply to be part of the Contender Category.
