The organisers of The National Running Show Birmingham have announced Hammer Fitness as the sponsor of the Treadmill Challenge taking place at the consumer show on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th January 2020.
Hammer Fitness will be offering three Hammer Fitness treadmills as top prizes for the Hammer Fitness Treadmill Challenge, along with a number of other prizes at the third edition of the award-winning show at Birmingham’s NEC.
Hammer Fitness is the online store for German fitness manufacturer Hammer Sport, which has worked in the manufacture and sale of sporting items for over 100 years. Hammer Sport is one of the leading providers of fitness and leisure products in Europe, marketing over 600 different products in more than 50 countries. Products are distributed to some of the biggest companies in the UK and Europe through SWAG Distribution.
In tandem with Hammer Fitness’ involvement in The Treadmill Challenge is the news that the prize treadmill will be a brand new 4332 Hammer Life Runner LR22i TFT to be launched in December 2019, just a month before The National Running Show Birmingham. This foldable treadmill offers a maximum speed of 22 km/hour, a maximum 12% incline, plus Bluetooth for music and a USB charger.
Anyone can enter the ‘Fastest Mile’ Challenge at the show next January, with the fastest mile runner each day winning a Hammer Life Runner LR22i treadmill. The third treadmill will go in a random draw, giving everyone who completed the mile on the treadmill over the weekend a chance to win.
In addition to the three treadmills up for grabs, Hammer Fitness will be giving away prizes from Shapeheart, PopSockets and Caterpy Running Laces, plus Hammer branded merchandise.
The National Running Show is the UK’s biggest independent running show. The show expects more than 55,000 visitor ticket registrations for 2020, all of whom will be able to discover the latest kit, tech, nutrition and races from over 250 exhibitors, learn from inspiring speakers and improve their running technique thanks to the hands-on feature areas.
Mike Seaman, Director of Raccoon Events, said “We are thrilled to welcome Hammer Fitness as sponsor of the Hammer Fitness Treadmill Challenge at The National Running Show Birmingham next January. Hammer Fitness is an established leader in sports and fitness equipment; and it is absolutely fantastic that they are offering three new treadmills plus other exciting prizes for participants.
“We know that many runners come to the show ready to get involved and have fun, and this is a huge incentive for them to get active and take part in the challenge. We look forward to seeing many visitors take to the treadmill at this full weekend celebration of running!”
Nathan Ridgard, Managing Director at SWAG Distribution, added, “We are delighted to host the Hammer Fitness Treadmill Challenge at The National Running Show. It is especially exciting to be launching our very latest treadmill model and to be giving away three as prizes over the course of the weekend. Hammer Fitness is committed to providing sports enthusiasts with the very best products for their needs, and we can’t wait to share our knowledge and expertise with runners at this brilliant event in the new year.”
