The organisers of the ASICS Greater Manchester Marathon have announced their partnership with ERDINGER Alkoholfrei, who has chosen the race as its first marathon event in the UK as part of its expanding sponsorship program.
The ASICS Greater Manchester Marathon takes place on Sunday 19th April and is the UK’s flattest, fastest and friendliest marathon. The race was voted the UK’s Best Marathon by The Running Awards 2014 and it also won the Most Improved Race at the Runner’s World Personal Best Awards last year.
The ERDINGER Alkoholfrei team will be handing out free samples of the isotonic recovery drink to all runners at the finish line of the ASICS Greater Manchester Marathon. Low in calories and sodium, the isotonic drink is free from fat, cholesterol, chemicals and preservatives and has the perfect balance of minerals and B-vitamins, which makes it a great natural isotonic recovery drink for runners of all levels.
Race Director Simon Hill commented: “We are excited that ERDINGER Alkoholfrei will be present at the ASICS Greater Manchester Marathon, handing out refreshing, isotonic drinks to all finishers. ERDINGER Alkoholfrei is a huge name in sports and we feel privileged to have the team at the finish line of the race and to be the only UK marathon that ERDINGER Alkoholfrei has chosen to have a presence at.”
Events Director Pete Gowans from ERDINGER Alkoholfrei stated: ”The ASICS Greater Manchester Marathon is going to be a fantastic event. We will be on hand at the finish line to give you a cold, refreshing isotonic drink that will not only aid your recovery but ensure you celebrate your victory in style. We look forward to seeing you and to celebrating with you on 19th April.”
