2017 Montrose Triathlon Event Sponsors
21 May 2017: With two weeks to go until this year’s Triathlon we thought it was time you met the rest of our 2017 event sponsors. We can’t run the event without the support of local businesses so we cannot thank them enough for their support. Please take time to check out who they are, what they do and support them where you can.
Scotmid will again be making one of the most important donations towards this year’s event by providing lunch for all the event volunteers as well as providing all the bottled water for the 240 participants and event volunteers.
This donation is really important to Tri Angus. The event marshals are on course for several hours so it is vital we help keep them fuelled while they are out and about, as well as keeping our participants hydrated.
Specsavers have again committed to supporting the Triathlon for a fourth year. They have been right behind us from the start and this is something for which we are very grateful. In Year One they provided 60 high vis vests for our volunteers to wear on course and since then they have provided give-aways for the finishers goodie bags.
Agrii We are delighted to announce the continued support from Agrii which is now sponsoring the Triathlon for a fourth consecutive year. In Angus, one of Scotland’s prime food producing areas, Agrii works with many local farmers to ensure they produce top quality food for us all to eat. Agrii specialises in providing farmers with expert support and advice through their skilled agronomists to ensure farmers get the most out of the crops they grow. Agrii also invests a lot of time in research which in turn helps farmers produce food in a sustainable way.
This year we welcome McCain to our list of event sponsors. McCain is the UK’s largest purchaser of British potatoes, buying approximately 15% of the annual potato crop. They want everyone to enjoy potatoes as part of a healthy, balanced diet. Potatoes are virtually fat free, an energy rich carbohydrate, as well as being full of fibre, vitamin C, potassium and iron. Keep an eye out for their staff as who are taking part in this year’s event!
The team from Sattva Wellness will be waiting for you as you cross the finish line at this year’s Montrose Triathlon, ready to ease any aches and pains in return for a small donation to this year’s charity partner, Tayside Mountain Rescue. Their team of Advanced Remedial & Sports Massage Therapists know what they are doing! Michaella will also have Yoga demonstrations aimed at helping to help stretch out tired muscles. Sattva Wellness normally practices from Dundee Chiropractic Clinic & Forfar Community Campus so be sure to check them out if you need a little TLC.
We would like to welcome Guthrie Bros to this year’s list of event sponsors. Guthrie Bros is a family owned Ford dealer established in 1949 serving Angus, Aberdeenshire and beyond including the cities of Aberdeen & Dundee. The dealership on Northesk Road, Montrose offers high levels of customer care and competitive pricing on a wide range of services including: New Ford, Ford Direct & Used Car Sales, Motability, Servicing, Repair & MOT, Tyres, Parts & Accessories, Accident Repair Centre, Forecourt & Convenience Store. This year they are providing two vans to help us move all our equipment to and from Montrose Sports Centre. They will also have a display in the finish area so be sure to check out their vehicles!
Sweatshop As in previous years Sweatshop Dundee has very kindly given us the race numbers for the event, the bags which hold participants post-race goodies, as well as discount vouchers to be used in their stores throughout the UK. Event essentials! Make sure you keep your race number as this has a 10% discount code on it too which can be used online!!
Carnoustie Creative has been behind us right from the word go, designing our website and also the promotional postcards we use. This year they have again printed our A5 postcards as part of the sponsor package as well as including our website hosting costs in the sponsorship. If you are a new business looking for help creating a new website then we would highly recommend looking at Carnoustie Creative and their affordable packages for new businesses.
