Adidas Boosts Bloggers 

Adidas believes that there should be more sports bloggers in South Africa, and they want to help it happen. They chose 10 people to attend a blogger workshop at Adidas HQ in Cape Town. Myself and countless others from Joburg had the awesome experience of being flown to Cape Town for the day. It was such an amazing experience!

We learnt so many interesting things from those that are in the industry and have so much experience. It’s always great learning new things that you didn’t know before, or looking at something with a fresh perspective. They started from the bottom and explained everything all the way up to monetising your blog. I enjoyed every single talk and interacting with all of the attendees. We have such diverse talent in this country and it needs to be tapped into. I am so excited to start doing more sport blogging as well as my fitness and lifestyle. With my background it goes hand in hand and really compliments what I am already doing, so I have a renewed creative vision and motivation to go forward!

Thank you for the amazing experience Adidas, as well as helping for the friendships I made on the day as well. Nikki and I have already started plotting some adventures together 🙂

Adidas Run Your Crew

RYC is Run Your Crew. Who is part of your crew? Or do you want to start something new?

Adidas is always at the forefront of what is on trend and cool. With that in mind, they’ve launched a unique running event aimed at bringing running crews and adidas Runners communities together from around the globe, to run, connect and celebrate the spirit of urban running.

We always want to do something different when it comes to fitness and running, so now is your chance! This inner-city crew night run will take place in Johannesburg on Dec. 3, 2016 at 7 p.m. and offers a unique format: Runners must enter a six-person crew to compete, with all crews able to choose the route or distance they’d like to run on the night of the race. The only rule is that all members of a crew must stay within 50 m of each other for the entire run. Not bad right?

 

The run starts for all crews at the Sci Bono Centre in Newtown. Each crew has the option to run 4, 8 or 12 km, with the routes diverging at multiple points along the course. All routes converge again for the last kilometer, having all crews finish together at a multi-stage block party hosted directly at the finish line.

“What better way to celebrate the year end in Johannesburg? Created around existing urban running behaviours, we’re aiming to bring together young, urban runners and welcome everyone to the adidas Runners community. Runners will be able to train for RYC with their crews at our weekly runs hosted at Runbase, the home of adidas Runners,” said Pieter Warnich, senior manager Running at adidas South Africa.

Adidas Runners is a global group of runners who meet and run from Runbase, an exciting community hub. This is where runners meet to share experience, get tested and even purchase their favourite adidas running shoes. The first South African Runbase opened in Braamfontein in 2015, with the second planned for Cape Town.

“Running provides energy for people to do amazing things with their lives, and through this run that brings international and local running crews and adidas Runners communities together, everyone will tap into this collective potential. There will be a phenomenal prize for the winning crew that runs the 12 km race, so select your members carefully,” Warnich concluded.

Registration is now open but limited so get your crew together and register ASAP! Visit runyourcrew.com to sign up for this awesome experience.

Entries cost R1200 per crew (R200 per person). All registered crews will receive an entry to the race, an adidas race pack and access to the block party. The race pack contains six adidas RYC race tees, phone pouches, R75 Uber vouchers, timing chips and RYC stickers. After finishing the race together each crew member will also receive their access band to the block party.
