Runners from across South Africa will kickstart their Heritage Day Celebrations this coming Friday 24 September 2021 by taking on the much-anticipated JOBURG 10K CITYRUN Virtual Edition!

“We can’t wait to celebrate National Heritage Day ‘virtually’ with thousands of runners from across South Africa,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director of Stillwater Sports and Founder of the RUN YOUR CITY Series.  “Just a reminder, if you are going for speed, be sure to choose a 10km route that is flat, and safe.  You will be going up against a number of 

Boxer Athletics Club’s elite runners, including Bulelwa Semai, Tanith Maxwell, Elroy Gelant and Thabang Mosiako.  I guarantee that these athletes will be choosing their routes wisely.”

“Whether you’ll be racing or just plan on enjoying a relaxed 10km run with family and friends, be sure to share your experience with us via social media,” continues Meyer.  “There are awesome PUMA prizes up for grabs.  If you have not yet entered, there is still time as entries will close at midnight on Wednesday (22 September).  Enter now and prepare to join thousands of runners as they unite ‘virtually’ in the spirit of camaraderie and pride.  Let’s #RunJoburg together on National Heritage Day by taking on the JOBURG 10K CITYRUN Virtual Edition!”
