Official Bottled Water Partner
Volvic® announced as Official Bottled Water Sponsor for Ealing Half Marathon
The organisers of the award-winning Ealing Half Marathon have confirmed Volvic® Natural Mineral Water as the Official Bottled Water Sponsor for the 2016 race.
The 5th Ealing Half Marathon takes place on Sunday 25th September 2016 and is well known for its huge community support and great atmosphere with runners travelling from all over the UK and abroad to experience the #EalingFeeling.
Danone Waters (UK & Ireland) Limited (DWUK) will provide 35,000 bottles of Volvic® to keep runners hydrated around the 13.1 mile course and at the finish line. The Ealing-based company has been supporting the Ealing Half Marathon since the inaugural race took place in 2012.
As in previous years, the Anglican churches alongside the running route will be manning the water stations with their congregations handing out the water bottles to the runners, actively showing their support for the event.
Water stations will be set up at St Peter’s, at the two-mile point; St Barnabas at four miles; St Stephen’s, at six miles; St Mary’s, Hanwell, at mile nine; and St John’s, Mattock Lane, when runners have a mile to go. The final station will be supported by volunteers from Danone Waters UK & Ireland Ltd. There will also be a fuel station and rest stop for runners at St Christopher’s on Bordars Road, just after mile seven.
Charlotte Broos, Danone Corporate Social Responsibility Manager said: “It is an honour for us to once again have the chance to support this fantastic community event. Health is incredibly important to us as a business and we are delighted to be helping the runners stay hydrated once again. We hope that the plentiful supplies of Volvic will help every runner ‘unleash their unstoppable’!”
Event Co-Ordinator Sandra Courtney said: “We are pleased to welcome Volvic® on board as a sponsor of the Ealing Half Marathon and we are very grateful for the support received from Danone Waters (UK & Ireland) since 2012. The runners will be provided with water at six water stations, ensuring they keep hydrated and motivated. I would also like to express a big thank you to the Anglican churches who have got fully behind the event again.”
“The final places for the 2016 race are being snapped up quickly and anyone wishing to be on the start line should go to the website and sign up as soon as possible.”
