Run 4 Wales, the event delivery team behind VELOTHON Wales (and a licensee of IRONMAN World Triathlon Corporation) is delighted to announce an innovative partnership with Healthspan, the UK’s leading direct vitamin and supplement supplier, to improve the health and wellbeing of people across Wales.
The well-being experts have joined forces with the team behind Wales’ largest mass-participation running and cycling events (including VELOTHON Wales) to promote healthier lifestyles in every corner of the country.
The partnership will give Healthspan the opportunity to engage with over 10,000 riders set to take part in the sportive on Sunday 8 July, giving riders the opportunity to sample some of their innovative products.
Speaking about the new partnership, double Olympic Marathon Runner and Run 4 Wales Head of Operations Steve Brace said: “Every year thousands of individuals use training for a Run 4 Wales event as way of improving their health and wellbeing, a fact that we are immensely proud of.
“The new relationship with Healthspan is so exciting because of the shared value of a healthier and happier nation. In particular, the Healthspan 10 initiative at some of our running events will provide a platform for engagement with those that are new to the fitness world and need that extra bit of encouragement and support.”
“We look forward to spreading Healthspan’s mantra of attaining wellbeing through a healthy and active lifestyle at our growing portfolio of mass-participation events.”
Healthspan CEO Tim Pethick added: “This partnership with Run 4 Wales is one of our most exciting yet. We passionately believe that in conjunction with a healthy diet and positive outlook, everybody should stay active to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Running and cycling are one of the purest forms of exercise and accessible to almost everybody so we are delighted to support Run 4 Wales in the pursuit to get more people on their feet - and two wheels!
Any exercise naturally increases the nutritional demands and physical stress on our body. Through this partnership and the Healthspan 10 initiative, we will provide the support and nutrition to keep Wales in the best of health.”
