High Profile Sponsors Local Runners In The Hook Norton 6K Run For The Sixth Year
Posted: 06th October 2011
High Profile, the UK’s leading manufacturer of standard and bespoke made plastic promotional products, is lending its support to the Hook Norton 6K run, also known as ‘Hooky 6’. The company prepares, donates and distributes specially made sports bottles for each runner that participates in the event. The event, which started six years ago, has received continued support and sponsorship from High Profile during the entire time.
The ‘Hooky 6’ is organised by the Hook Norton Harriers for both competitive and fun runners from across the UK. The event aims to highlight the health benefits of running six miles as well as demonstrating how easily and quickly it can be achieved. Almost 300 participants travel from across the UK to participate in the recent event to run solely or within a team to cover the six mile distance.
Richard Wood, Managing Director of High Profile, commented: “We have offered our continued support to the Hook Norton Harriers since it first organised the ‘Hooky 6’ six years ago.
“Having been part of the event from the beginning makes it a very special project for us to work on at High Profile. Initially I was approached by the organisers as I knew them both professionally and personally and we thought this was the ideal opportunity for us to work together. We haven’t looked back since then.
“We are always looking to lend our support to healthy activities that encourages people to get fitter and healthier.
“Personalised sports bottles are a great way to not only help to promote the event but to also keep the dedicated runners refreshed throughout the race.”
