Stor-Age Property REIT, which operates self-storage facilities in South Africa and the United Kingdom, is sponsoring Saturday’s Stor-Age Festival of Running at SuperSport Park in Centurion, Gauteng, South Africa. Now in its second year, the event is expected to draw more than 2,500 runners, according to the source.
The one-day festival consists of three race categories: Solo Challenge, Relay and Schools Challenge. Participants can choose distances and trials within each category. All finishers will receive a medal, and refreshments will be available.
“We are all very excited about this year’s event, as we have already surpassed our expected interest in the festival and believe it will be even bigger and better than last year,” said Pierre Joubert, commercial manager of SuperSport Park. “There is much excitement amongst the local community, and we urge all runners and their families to join us.”
Stor-Age will also be the title sponsor for the 2019 festival. Chris Oosthuizen, the company’s head of sales, marketing and product, said the sponsorship is a natural fit, as Stor-Age is a stadium partner.
Headquartered in Cape Town and established in 2006 by the Lucas family, Stor-Age operates a 63-property portfolio, primarily in four South African metropolitan areas, that comprises approximately 407,000 square meters. It’s the operator appointed by Stor-Age Property Fund Managers Pty. Ltd. to manage and market the property portfolio owned by Stor-Age Property Holdings Pty. Ltd., and was listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange in November 2015.
