Laurent Moret, a keen runner from Tamboerskloof, was the lucky winner of a brand new Opel Adam, compliments of REEDS Motor Group and the ABSA Cape Town 12 ONERUN.
Following in the footsteps of the inaugural event, all runners taking part in the ABSA Cape Town 12 ONERUN on Sunday, 15 May 2016 stood a chance to go home as the proud owner of a zippy Opel Adam. Laurent Moret’s name was drawn just before the start and he then had to run the full 12km route before seeing his prize on the finish line.
“Winning the Opel Adam at the start was absolutely amazing,” says Moret. “I think reality only hit me when I reached the 8km mark. It became very difficult to keep the momentum. I was on cloud nine and thinking wow, I won a car! The event had a fantastic atmosphere and I was very impressed by the organisation. Winning the Opel Adam was the cherry on the cake. I will definitely be back next.”
“The ABSA Cape Town 12 ONERUN is an incredible event,” says Kevin Denicker, General Manager of REEDS Motor Group. “It’s a well organised, fun event that is great for both the sport-crazy people and economy of Cape Town. The Opel Adam is sporty, funky, stylish, sexy and fun. It fits the profile of the ABSA Cape Town 12 ONERUN entrant. The funky costumes worm by some of the runners on the day is evident of this.”
“In addition to the giveaway, more than 80 of our staff members took part in the event,” continues Denicker. “This proved to be a really successful team exercise. REEDS also had a few activations both at the start and on route including a display, manned cardboard Opel Adams, marimba dancers and music at the fountain in Adderley Street. We once again had an amazing time and look forward to continue growing our involvement in this special event.”
According to Michael Meyer, Managing Director of Stillwater Sports, it’s not every day that you stand a chance to win a car at a road running event. “With a top line-up that included both local and international athletes, an unconventional route distance of 12km, an Opel Astra giveaway with KFM and an Opel Adam giveaway with REEDS Motor Group, the ABSA Cape Town 12 ONERUN continues to break the norm in road running. We look forward to building on this excitement in 2017.”
