The Royal Parks Half Marathon, presented by Royal Bank of Canada, has today announced the return of natural energy drink brand TENZING as a partner for this year’s race.
16,000 runners are set to take part in this year’s race and TENZING, the natural energy drink committed to inspiring people to experience the power of nature, will keep runners hydrated by handing out drinks at the end of the 13.1 mile race. Competitors can choose between TENZING’s new blend Lime & Mint – launched just this week – and favourites Raspberry & Yuzu and Pineapple & Passionfruit.
Taking place on Sunday, October 8th, the spectacular route takes runners through four of London’s beautiful Royal Parks, including Hyde Park, The Green Park, St James’s Park, and Kensington Gardens, as well as past several of London’s iconic landmarks including Buckingham Palace, the Houses of Parliament, Trafalgar Square and the Royal Albert Hall.
Inspired by traditional Himalayan brews used by Sherpas to fuel their high-altitude expeditions, TENZING’s all-natural plant-based drinks contain a triple hit of natural caffeine, Vitamin C, and electrolytes. More than tasting great, all TENZING’s cans are carbon labelled, and their sustainable principles remain at the core of the business as they continue to give as much back to nature as they take.
Commenting on the partnership, Liz Tack, Head of Royal Parks Half Marathon said:“We are absolutely delighted to welcome TENZING as a partner for this year’s race. Given Royal Parks Half Marathon’s reputation as one of the UK’s most sustainable, major running events, it’s great that we get the opportunity to partner with a brand whose passion for protecting the environment matches our own. I’m excited to see the team at TENZING return for a fifth year at Royal Parks Half Marathon”.
Also commenting on the partnership, Founder of TENZING, Huib van Bockel, said:“We’re so excited to be helping runners smash the Royal Parks Half Marathon – whether they’re chasing a personal best, running for charity, or just for fun! TENZING’s all-natural isotonic formula matches the body’s salt and sugar levels, giving a sustainable energy boost without the crash – perfect when you are taking on 13.1 miles. Running is a core community for TENZING and we pride ourselves on our plant-powered energy – we can’t wait for runners to experience this too, good luck to all those taking part!”
