Stor-Age Festival of Running 2019 draws closer
On Saturday, 8 June 2019, the annual Stor-Age Festival of Running will take place at SuperSport Park for the third time.
We are honoured to once again be named the title sponsors of this exciting event, an innovative in-stadia festival for every type of runner. The event has become a highlight on the running calendar and this year promises to be even bigger than the last, where SuperSport Park will transform into a running hub to host over 2 500 runners.
The Stor-Age Festival of Running consists of three different race categories from which to choose, namely the Solo Challenge, Relay and Schools Challenge, tailoring the race for both amateur and seasoned runners. The aim is to build a community of runners within the safe confines of SuperSport Park. Participants will run in laps around the stadium and along the grass embankments to complete the 2km route.
The event organiser, Pierre Joubert explains the race format, “The format for the event is very similar to last year, with participants challenging themselves to run 2km laps in and around the SuperSport Park precinct within two hours.”
The event is designed to have something for the entire family and we expect this year to be even busier than the last. Joubert adds, “We are looking at making things a little bit more festive this year with a kids area and a variety of food stalls. We really want people to stay for the full day and so this year we will have something for the whole family.”
Comments Chris Oosthuizen, Stor-Age’s Head of Sales, Marketing and Product, “Sponsoring sports teams and events has been a focus of ours for quite some time, as we believe that it is a relevant and positive way to be involved in a community where our business provides a valuable service. Partnerships are fundamental in creating memorable events and that’s why sponsoring sports teams and calendar highlights such as this has been an ongoing focus of ours. The Festival of Running is another such event that brings together a community for a fun and wholesome cause.”
We look forward to yet another successful Stor-Age Festival or Running and we invite everyone to take part and to join in the festivities.
