Vitacress is the lead backer for the Andover Lake Run. In addition to sponsoring the event the local salad producers will host a Wild for Watercress stand at the event.
The company will provide runners and spectators with watercress smoothie power shots and information about the health benefits of watercress.
Tony Reid, Head of Marketing at Vitacress, who will be running in the event, said ‘As a local business, it’s really important to us to be involved in the local community. The Andover Lake Run is a fantastic, fun event which raises money for an important cause. Watercress is one of the most nutritious vegetables around and something we are extremely proud of here in Hampshire. We look forward to supplying the runners with a tasty healthy watercress shot‘.
Mike Strong, of the Lake Run, said ‘Last year’s launch event was such a success and raised over £6000 for the Andover foodbank. We are thrilled to be working with local businesses like Vitacress as sponsors and I’m sure those watercress power shots will help give some runners a boost‘.
