TrekFest 2019 here we come
Monk Nutrition are heading to TrekFest 2019 for the second year running and we literally cannot wait!
Global Adventure Challenges are bringing the incredible TrekFest events to the iconic Brecon Beacons and stunning Peak District National Park for 2019. We are super excited to be part of it, exhibiting in the crazy TrekFest village on the 6th July (Brecon Beacons) and 31st August (Peak District) 2019.
GAC do an amazing job at the event, it’s very professionally run in every aspect, from the campsite, to the village, to the staff out on the courses, they do an amazing job all round. A testament to this is the ever-increasing participant size, with returning hardcore TrekFester’s and newcomers who have heard about the challenge. Global Adventure Challenges also offer a host events around the world, so if you fancy a challenge, we’d highly recommend checking out their website - global adventure challenges.
What we love most about TrekFest is that it is open to anyone who fancies having a go. It’s amazing to see people taking on the challenges for charities that are close to their hearts. Some people have never walked the distances that the courses cover, which are 25km and 50km at both events. There are a few participants who run around the courses, but most choose to walk and take in the epic scenery.
We exhibited in the TrekFest village last year at the Peak District challenge which was amazing fun. We got the opportunity to chat with a lot of participants and ran a prize giveaway for the event. A lot of people taking part knew little about energy gels, so it was great to chat and educate them on the benefits of carb replenishment during endurance events, helping them to finish the courses with energy rather than hitting the wall and potentially coming off of the course due to fatigue.
This year we are very excited to be bringing 3 new Energy Gels to the event from our Monk Nutrition range. The gels have been going down an absolute storm in the UK, taking the gel taste to a whole new level! All being well, we are also hoping to bring a couple of extra brand-new products that are currently under development back at Monk HQ. These products are really going to boost the Monk Nutrition range and give our customers a complete ‘sports nutrition package’.
If you are going to be taking part in the events, make sure you connect with us on social media and look out for giveaways that we will be running in the lead up to the event. It’s going to be epic and we hope to see you there!
