Cape Town – Set to take the Mother City by storm on Sunday, 21 May 2017 the FNB Cape Town 12 ONERUN will feature an exciting #ForeverFaster PUMA ‘Beat Bolt’ on route competition.

According to Brett Bellinger, Marketing Director of PUMA South Africa, PUMA’s ‘Beat Bolt’ competition is a fun way to generate additional hype on route while encouraging both runner and spectator interaction.  “Essentially the activation will be a #ForeverFaster 100m sprint.  It’s a ‘Beat Bolt’ competition so of course it will require speed.  This section of the route will be timed.  The runner (male and female) to clock the fastest time over 100m will take home a PUMA shopping voucher to the value of R10 000.  We look forward to seeing the impressive times that this competition will deliver on race day.”

PUMA’s ‘Beat Bolt’ activation will be in the region of the 10,8km mark in Queen Victoria Street.  A commentator will be stationed +-50m ahead of the activation to motivate runners to make this the fastest 100m of their lives.  All runners will be notified of their 100m sprint times via sms after the race.
