“Runners have one last chance to join the RYC WARM UP RUNS powered by PUMA NITRO in the build up to the JOBURG 10K CITYRUN Virtual Edition,” confirms Michael Meyer, Managing Director of Stillwater Sports and Founder of the RUN YOUR CITY Series.  “The perfect leg loosener to the Virtual Run, the RYC WARM UP RUN #3 will take place nationwide this coming Thursday.  Runners can look forward to enjoying a 5km run with like-minded individuals – it almost feels like a mini event!  Runners are however reminded to protect their health and safety and that of others by social distancing while running.”

“What makes the WARM UP RUNS extra special is the fact that runners will be able to #WearTest a pair of PUMA NITRO running shoes on the day,” continues Meyer.  “Not only will runners get to see the range, but they’ll also get to complete the 5km run in a pair of PUMA NITROs.  There are also awesome sponsor prizes up for grabs including a pair of PUMA NITRO Running Shoes to the value of R4000.  We would like to invite all runners to join us at the RYC WARM UP RUN #3. #RUNPUMA and #SparkChange as we prepare for the JOBURG 10K CITYRUN Virtual Edition.”
