Meridian Foods to sponsor Windsor Half Marathon
Meridian Foods, the UK’s leading producer of nut butters, has announced that it will be the title sponsor of the prestigious Windsor Half Marathon in Windsor Great Park on Sunday September 25, 2016. The sponsorship deal will see the race re-named the Meridian Windsor Half Marathon, and will ensure the event continues to grow as it takes to the iconic park for its 34th year.
The Half Marathon is set in the picturesque grounds of Windsor Great Park and is run completely on closed roads as part of the two-day Windsor Running Festival. Hundreds of women will complete the Boudavida Women’s 10k on Saturday 24th September, of which Meridian Foods will support as official Nutritional Sponsor. Thousands of runners from far and wide will line the start of the Half Marathon on the Sunday, which ends with a fabulous final run along the impressive ‘Long Walk’ towards Windsor Castle.
Commenting on the new partnership, Sue McIntosh, Head of Marketing at Meridian Foods comments: “The Windsor Half Marathon is located in such an iconic setting and the event holds such respect with runners across the region. We’re excited about the partnership, and look forward to working with the event to encourage active lifestyles and healthy eating – some of our team will even be taking part, donating £1000 to our chosen charity, the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation.”
Race Director, Peter Hier, says: “We’re thrilled to have Meridian Foods as the main sponsor for the Half Marathon. We’re proud to align ourselves with a brand which so passionately encourages healthy eating and lifestyles.”
