FNB run your city Heritage Day virtual run launched

Stillwater Sports has announced the launch of the FNB Run Your City Series Heritage Day Virtual Run on Thursday 24 September.

 Participants from all walks of life will be able to unite (virtually) in a spirit of camaraderie, pride and celebration,”says Michael Meyer, Managing Director of Stillwater Sports. “With mass participation events currently suspended in South Africa, we are excited to celebrate National Heritage Day with thousands of runners for the first time ever in a virtual sphere.”

Coinciding with the launch of the Heritage Day Virtual Run, Stillwater Sports has also announced a name change for two of the traditional events in its stable, with the Cape Town and Durban races now being known as the FNB Cape Town 12K CITYRUN(formerly known as the FNB Cape Town 12 ONERUN) and FNB Durban 10K CITYRUN(formerly known as the FNB Durban 10K CITYSURFRUN).

Due to the current state of the COVID-19 pandemic in South Africa, both the 2020 FNB Durban 10K CITYRUN and FNB Joburg 10K CITYRUN events have been cancelled. The FNB Cape Town 12K CITYRUN was cancelled earlier this year shortly after South Africa entered lockdown.

“We are sad to cancel the Durban and Johannesburg events,” confirms Meyer. “Runners that have already entered and paid have three options available to them. OptionOne is to transfer their entries to the Heritage Day Virtual Run and be part of the Nationwide Heritage Day celebration. Option Two is to donate the entry fee to one of the official event charities, and Option Three is to receive a full refund.”

Existing FNB Durban 10K CITYRUN and FNB Joburg 10K CITYRUN entrants will be contacted directly.
