Award winning events company Threshold Sports today announced adidas Terrex UK as the official apparel sponsor of their award-winning Threshold Trail Series in 2020.
The Threshold Trail Series is made up of four of the best loved endurance trail events in the UK with each event offering a unique challenge using a variety of terrains, gradients, elevations, distances and awe-inspiring landscapes.
Adidas believes that sport has the power to change lives, and getting people outdoors is an important part of improving quality of life. Trail running and hiking are key sports for the adidas Terrex brand and through this sponsorship, adidas Terrex hope to enable more people to get outside and on the trails.
Those looking to take on one of the Threshold Trails can opt to take on each trail event over one or two days and can sign up via a range of packages with entries starting from just £39 for a charity place.
The popularity of the Threshold Trail Series continues to grow year on year and since 2017, the series has seen a 25 per cent increase in the number of people signing up to its events:
HEINEKEN Race to the Castle: June 6-7: The newly launched Heineken Race to the Castle is the latest addition to the Threshold Trail Series portfolio.
