As all eyes move to Beijing, China for the World Champs of Track & Field, eight runners take off on an epic race through the bustling capital to #IGNITEBeijing.
In the fifth episode of IGNITE YOUR CITY, four teams of two lace up with the new PUMA IGNITE MESH to embark on a relay through Beijing’s striking contrast of traditional and modern architecture. The mesh upper adds breathability and flexibility to the responsiveness and energy return found in the PUMA IGNITE collection.
The relay baton is handed off to the first set of runners at the Temple of Sun. The runners weave past 798 – an industrial zone turned art district, through alleyways and narrow streets, and conclude at Jingshan Park – north of the Forbidden City.
The full crew joins the last team for a final leg of the run. They close out their relay with a group huddle overlooking Beijing.
Next up? Cape Town.
