Meridian Foods to sponsor Windsor Half Marathon again

Meridian Foods will once again be the title sponsor of the Windsor Half Marathon.

The sponsorship deal, now in its second year, will ensure the event continues to grow as it takes to the iconic Windsor Great Park for its 35th year, on September 24.

Part of the Windsor Running Festival, the Half Marathon follows the Boudavida Women’s 10k, Windsor, held on September 23.

Meridian have been busy with a range of new products recently launched, including their Peanut Butter and Seeds, as well as the appointment of Wasps Captain and England rugby player, James Haskell and Olympic hockey gold medallist, Alex Danson as the brand’s first sporting ambassadors. The high-profile, elite, athletes are helping Meridian to increase awareness about the massive benefits of nut butter as a healthy, natural source of protein and energy for anyone involved in sports and physical activity.

Sue McIntosh, Head of Marketing at Meridian Foods added: “The team had such a fantastic time at last year’s race and we’re delighted to be involved again for 2017.

“Our nut butters feel like a natural fit with the running community as they are all natural and provide an excellent source of energy and protein. We’ll be offering samples of our products to runners and supporters throughout the race weekend, encouraging the importance of active lifestyles and healthy eating.

“Even more of the Meridian family will be running the Half in 2017, and we hope to raise a further £1000 to our chosen charity, the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation.”

Peter Hier, race director of the Windsor Running Festival, said: “We’re thrilled to have Meridian Foods back on board as title sponsor for 2017 – we had great feedback from runners who sampled their products after last year’s event and we think the brand is a perfect fit for the Half Marathon.”
