Runners from all over the world hit the streets of inner city Joburg for adidas Run Your Crew (RYC) on Saturday evening, 3 December 2016.
The running community came together to run, connect and celebrate the spirit of urban running. Crews started together, choosing their routes of 4km, 8km or 12km, and finished together at a two-stage block party at the finish line. Crews celebrated with live acts and DJs, which included DJ Zinhle, Desmond & the Tutus; Plaat Japie, Khuli Chana, Petite Noir, Kid Fonque, DJ Kent, Da Capo and DJ Lag.
The participating global crews were Run Pack Berlin, London Brunch Club, Blacklist LA and adidas runners from Tokyo, Europe and Moscow. Also leading their own crews were some of SA’s favourite stars, including Maps Maponyane and Lunga Shabalala, 5FM DJ Tumi Voster, Amanda du Pont, the country’s fitness hero Letshego Zulu and 2015 Comrades champion Caroline Wöstmann. Each crew brought their individual culture and energy, which created a very special and unique experience.
