PUMA Running’s newest range, PUMA NITRO, has just arrived in SA and the Run Your City (RYC) Series running community will be able to put it to the test at four exciting 5K PUMA NITRO Demo Runs that will take place bi-weekly in Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg commencing on Thursday 18 March 2021.
“The 5K PUMA NITRO Demo Run is a fun way to keep the RYC Series running community motivated and active in the build up to the 2021 events,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director of Stillwater Sports. “What makes the Demo Runs even more exciting is that the newest PUMA Running Range, which has only just landed in SA, will be available for runners to see, touch and try. PUMA has been the footwear and apparel partner of the RYC Series since the inception of the first event (Cape Town 12K CITYRUN) in 2015. We absolutely love the brand and to say that we are excited about this new range would be an understatement.”
“The PUMA NITRO Range features our most innovative technologies,” says PUMA South Africa Marketing Director Brett Bellinger. “NITRO foam makes the shoes extremely lightweight and responsive, to help runners use less energy and run comfortably to reach their goals. This range also includes specially engineered designs for female runners. Research has shown that our consumers strive for change, to better themselves and the greater good. This led PUMA to the concept of SPARK CHANGE to bring meaning and energy to everything that we do in running. We love the idea of the 5K PUMA NITRO Demo Run. Not only will the RYC Series running community get to try on the new range, but they can also complete the 5km run in a pair of PUMA NITROs.”
