Stillwater Sports, the organisers of Africa’s leading road running series, the Absa RUN YOUR CITY Series, have announced an exciting time-based incentive scheme that will reward SA’s elite runners on a sliding-scale at the Absa RUN YOUR CITY DURBAN 10K on Sunday 10 July 2022.

 

“Our goal is to encourage depth of performance as well as quality of performance at the Absa RUN YOUR CITY DURBAN 10K,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director of Stillwater Sports and Founder of the Absa RUN YOUR CITY Series. “Male runners will be rewarded for times ranging from a sub 30 minutes to world record time, with a fantastic incentive on offer for the first SA runner to dip under 28 minutes. On the female side, similarly, the focus will be on both depth and quality of performance, but we really want to see SA women running under 31 minutes, and then starting to attack the sub 30 minutes barrier”.

The programme is aimed at ensuring that the best South African athletes compete in the Absa RUN YOUR CITY Series, against some of the best athletes in the world, and are rewarded for world class performances. Athletes that form part of the SA Elite Athlete Programme will also be eligible to win their share in the Absa RUN YOUR CITY DURBAN 10K’s prize purse.
