Discovery has come onboard as the title sponsor of the ultimate trail run in the city of George. The event will from now on be known as The Discovery George Mountain Ultra Trail, the Discovery MUT for short.
We are very proud to have formed a partnership with a brand like Discovery and we look forward to a great working relationship with them!
“Trail running promotes strength, agility and balance – key aspects of physical fitness. Our sponsorship of the Discovery George Mountain Ultra Trail not only aligns with Discovery’s pledge to make 100 million people 20% more active by 2025, but – given the incredible natural beauty of the setting – also gives participants the opportunity to combine physical activity with their love of the great outdoors,” Iona Maclean, Head of Sponsorships and Experiential Marketing at Discovery.
