Entries are still open for the latest entry in the Nedbank Runified series, which is set to take place virtually on Saturday July 10.
Organised by Nedbank Running Club, this will be the series’ second year.
“Nedbank has been a supporter of running for decades,” said Nedbank sponsorship manager Kelly Thompson.
“We kicked off this year’s Runified series with the Breaking Barriers event in May, which put elite runners back on the road, and there we witnessed both Irvette van Zyl and Ketema Negasa break the 50km International Association of Ultrarunners world record.”
Saturday’s event is open to runners from across the country, and helps serve as a buildup for the final challenge in October.
In addition to the fun of getting out and about, there are also some great prizes on offer.
Spot prizes will be awarded to 10 lucky runners, courtesy of sponsors Futurelife, Thirsti, Bavaria, Biogen and Nike.
All entrants will also stand a chance to win a share of R70,000 Greenbacks, with one lucky runner walking away with an all-expenses-paid trip for two to compete in a national marathon up to the value of R50,000.
“We’re excited about bringing running events to life in 2021,” Nedbank Running Club national manager Nick Bester said.
“On all levels, I understand the hard work and effort that goes into starting and completing these challenges and we are looking forward to seeing incredible results and hopefully new running club members.”
