Athletes competing in Standard Bank’s Be More Race will use Quench brand of water following a partnership between the bank and the beverage’s manufacturer.
The half-marathon is scheduled for Lilongwe on July 30.
Announcing the partnership Wednesday, Carlsberg Malawi Limited Marketing Director, Gwynyth Mchiela, said the company will provide over 150 cases of Quench to the participants.
“Our water, Quench, will be available to ensure that all participants and stakeholders involved rehydrate throughout the duration of the race.
“We will also bring event support such as cooling equipment and personnel to serve participants at eight Quench refreshment points along the track. Quench is the perfect complement for participants who will need to rehydrate and remain fresh during the Be More Race,” Mchiela said.
Standard Bank Head of Marketing, Thoko Unyolo, said the bank was grateful to Quench for the support to the race.
“We are excited to welcome Quench into the race. We look forward to a long-term partnership with Be More Race and girl child education,” she said.
