The ABSA Cape Town 12 ONERUN will boast an impressive overall prize purse of R250 000 in 2019, with the open men’s and women’s winners each taking home a whopping R30 000 on the day.
“Celebrating its 5th anniversary in 2019, the ABSA Cape Town 12 ONERUN has established itself as a ‘proudly South African, proudly Cape Town’ must do road race,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director Stillwater Sports. “We are both proud and excited to be able to award local and international athletes for their support and hard work, by offering a deserving prize purse. This offering is made possible thanks to the valued support of our sponsors, whose passion and love for the event is infectious.”
Prize money has been allocated to the top 10 finishers in the Open Category, with the runner- up in the Open Men’s and Women’s races taking home R17 000 each and the final spot on the podium securing R13 000. Juniors, Veterans, Masters, Grand Master as well as the 70+ age groupers will earn prize money from 1st to 3rd place.
“The deal will be sweetened further for South African athletes with the announcement of our 2019 ABSA Cape Town 12 ONERUN SA Athletes Incentive Scheme,” continues Meyer. “We understand the amount of time, effort and dedication that it takes to race at this level. We are excited to reward and motivate SA’s elites to get out of their comfort zones, improve their performances and take SA’s standard of road running to the next level. If you are not running on the day, be sure to be on the finish line (in Bree Street, Cape Town) to see the best of the best pushing their limits.”
