Max Cluer Sports Marketing is excited to announce Varsity College as the new title sponsor to the Multisport Series. Varsity College, an educational brand of The IIE, is a dynamic young brand making it perfect partner to the Multisport Series with its focus on a healthy and energetic lifestyle.
Carole Adam, National Sports Manager at Varsity College commented “Varsity College is the proud new title sponsor of this action packed Multisport Series. Varsity College has a Sports Life initiative at each campus which encourages students to get involved in healthy outdoor lifestyle-orientated sports such as MTB, Canoeing, Trial Running, Surfing etc. and the series is a great fit to take our Sports Life vision to the next level! Varsity College will also be adding a fun new dimension to the series which will appeal to all competitors as well as encourage spectators to have a bit of fun too!”
This multisport series is designed around the family, it’s all about getting out there and having fun. Trail Running, Mountain Biking and Paddling make up the three core disciplines. The venues are beautiful and safe and make for a fantastic day out. Participants can compete, or just take part in various ways and forms, as an individual or as a team. The Full Distance event is geared for the weekend warriors and the racing athletes and a Half Distance event for the younger generation and less adventurous, the perfect platform to learn and get involved before taking it to the next level. The Kids Multisport Dash allows the youngsters to get involved in the sport and perhaps even become future champions; mom and dad are welcome to take part as well.
Participants may choose between the MULTISPORT and the MULTIX events. The full course MULTISPORT comprises a 5km trail run, 20km MTB and 5km paddle while the short course is made up of a 2.5km trail run, 10km MTB and 2.5km paddle. The MULTIX caters for the non-paddlers and comprises a 5km trail run, 20km MTB and 2.5km trail run and also offers a half-distance event. The KIDS MULTISPORT DASH offers youngsters between the ages of U7 and U11 their own taste of multisport. For the first time this year, the organisers have introduced a TRAIL RUN option (5km / 15km) and a Mountain Bike race (40km /20km) to cater for those individuals who prefer to concentrate on one discipline !
With full catering & beverages on offer, ablution facilities, medical and safety standards to spec and fantastic giveaways, Max Cluer Sports Marketing strive to offer their participants a value for money package and a ‘feel good’ experience. Bring your mountain bike and helmet, running shoes and canoe and lifejacket (if doing the Multisport event) for a great day of fun and exercise with family and friends. For the active and outdoorsy, there are few better ways to spend your weekend than at the Varsity College Multisport Series.
