Junior track & field stars get to indulge in scrumptious snacks at the 2019 PUMA School of Speed Series thanks to event partner, Vital.

“South Africa’s leading vitamin and health supplement brand, Vital is the perfect fit for the PUMA School of Speed Series,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director Stillwater Sports.  “The series caters for junior track & field stars between the ages of 14 – 19 and focusses on a healthy lifestyle while encouraging people to enjoy the outdoors.  With Vital as a partner in 2019 we look forward to growing this trend and welcoming more participants to each event.”

“The Vital brand includes vitamins, minerals, health supplements and foods,” says Vanessa Sew Chung Hong, Marketing Executive at Vital Health Foods.  “Partnering with Stillwater Sports and the PUMA School of Speed offers us the opportunity to reach a broad consumer group who don’t just compete in sporting events to win, but those who strive towards healthy and active lifestyles.  The events are hosted across South Africa and are enjoyed by athletes from all walks of life.”

“There are misconceptions around taking vitamins and supplements,” continues Sew Chung Hong.  “By partnering with the PUMA School of Speed and being present at the events, we hope to educate consumers about their health needs and requirements to support busy and demanding lifestyles. We also hope that participants and their families will be better equipped to take care of their health.”

All entrants can look forward to sampling Vital’s range of scrumptious Mini Rice cakes on event day.
