The fast and popular FNB Durban 10K CitySurfRun has been awarded the Bronze Label status by the International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF).

“We are proud to welcome the Bronze Label status for our second FNB Run Your City Series event,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director Stillwater Sports.

“Receiving this fantastic accolade for two events in the same year is no small feat. Being awarded this status for an event that is currently only in its third year is equally impressive. It is a testament to the hard work and countless early mornings and late nights that were needed to ensure that we host a world-class event.”

A feature-filled event

The event features both an Elite Invitational Programme and mass participation element. All entrants are granted the opportunity to enjoy a journey through the magnificent city of Durban with the route highlighting iconic landmarks, while Durban’s leading performing arts groups ensure an on route experience like no other.

“Receiving IAAF Bronze Label status has further motivated us to ensure that the 2019 FNB Durban 10K CitySurfRun surpasses all expectations. We cannot wait to welcome runners to the start line on Sunday 13 October,” concludes Meyer.

Fast and memorable route

According to Steve Mkasi, KZN Athletics, the FNB Durban 10K CitySurfRun is one of Durban’s most beautiful and dynamic races.

“The event goes through many sectors of the city, giving athletes a true taste of diversity,” says Mkasi. “The course has proven to be fast. In 2018 Swiss sensation, Julien Wanders set a European record when he smashed Mo Farah’s 10km record (set in 2010), making him the fastest European of all time over 10km (at the time).”

Catch the speed and action

Over the past five years, the series has delivered compelling racing and fast times which will now be shared with the world through a livestream on Sunday 13 October 2019.
