Cape Town, South Africa, April 2011 – Visitors to the Two Oceans Marathon Expo between 20 and 22 April will be able to pit their speed against world record speedster Usain Bolt, and stand to win lucrative running sponsorships.
Technical supplier to the race PUMA will operate their Usain Bolt FAAS Test mini-track – an electronically timed speed trap – where the public can test their running speed against Bolt’s, with the fastest man and woman during the three days of the expo each winning a 1 year PUMA product sponsorship worth R10 000.
PUMA is also bringing their FAAS lab, a pop-up PUMA store transformed to celebrate the Jamaican Athletic Federation, to the Expo – look out for the dreadlocks, Jamaican rhythms and sugar cane.
Expert runners including Elana Meyer, Dan Hugo, Jacques van Rensburg and Leanne Juul will be on hand to introduce visitors to PUMA’s latest footwear – the award winning FAAS 500 and 300 minimalist, lightweight running shoes. Faas is the Jamaican word for fast, and the name fits.
There will also be loads of Two Oceans Memorabilia on sale and runners who present their race numbers qualify for a 25% discount.
