iPRO Team Attends Ferry Meadows parkrun
This October marks 1-year since iPRO secured its six-year global partnership with parkrun as its first-ever Global Hydration Partner. Over the duration of the first year of the partnership, iPRO have launched a new parkrun label on their flagship iPRO Hydrate range and delivered a UK Summer Tour.
On the first year of the partnership with iPRO, Chief Executive Officer at parkrun, Russ Jefferys commented:
“As we celebrate the first year of our partnership with iPRO, it's been fantastic to see the work they have done with local parkrun events across the country, supporting and getting to know our local communities, and introducing parkrunners to the iPRO range. I have no doubt that there's lots more to come. We're excited to have iPRO alongside us on this journey.”
Lucy Darrall, Global Partnerships Manager at iPRO, added:
“The shared values between parkrun and iPRO of promoting healthy choices and active lifestyles, has led to a hugely successful first year together. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with the parkrun team over the past year and we look forward to working with the team and volunteers more as we continue this fantastic partnership.”
Over the summer, the iPRO team hit the road with their portfolio of healthy hydration drinks to hydrate parkrunners. After the fantastic reception received from the summer tour, the team will now target the midlands starting from 1st October to greet parkrunners and deliver bottles of iPRO Hydrate in four flavours for them to choose from: Berry Mix, Orange & Pineapple, Citrus Blend, and Mango.
iPRO visited Ferry Meadows parkrun, and provided healthy hydration to all those that attended.
Roy Young Co-Event Director from parkrun said:
"Thank you for your visit on Saturday, when you arrived it was still dark, and rather damp; after a quick recce together we chose to place the inflatables and the drinks as close to the finish as we could. By 9am the inflatables were up, the rain clouds had moved on, and parkrun was underway. As our start is not quite where we finish, it was the first sight for many of what was to come. By the end almost 500 participants and volunteers had received a welcome drink, many hanging around for some time enjoying the occasion, having a chat and their photo's taken. Well done team iPRO Hydrate."

Samuel Ridge, Brand Representative at iPRO, comments on the parkrun visits:
“iPRO have thoroughly enjoyed travelling around the UK to parkrun locations to celebrate this momentous occasion. There have been great moments of laughter as the team engaged with local communities. We hope everyone has enjoyed our healthy hydration drinks so far, and we look forward to continuing our tour to more parkrun destinations across the UK”.
What originally started as a meeting of 13 runners for the first parkrun has since transformed into a global phenomenon. parkrun is growing exponentially and has caught the imagination of over 7 million people.
