Where history and speed intersect, our FOREVER.FASTER. activities can’t be far. That’s why our PUMA Egypt team provided the Fueled by Nitro Branded double deck booth which served as a hub for runners to test the latest Nitro shoes, win vouchers, or relax on cozy bean bags. To ignite the competitive spirit, participants could engage in PlayStation games or Jumping Ropes competitions. For the little ones, face glitter and hair braiding kept them entertained, while a photo tower awaited all finishers to capture their winning smiles.
