Danielle McBride, Brand Manager of White’s Oats, said: “White’s is delighted to come on board as principal sponsor of the under-13 Races.
“The link between good simple nutrition and what it can deliver in terms of health, sustaining energy levels and supporting a strong body is becoming more readily understood and we very much look forward to promoting the benefits around good nutrition and sport to our young aspiring athletes.
“Oats are a mighty superfood for runners owing to their complex carbohydrates, and vital for optimal training and performance. They are also hugely versatile and can be made into tasty and nutritious snacks for after a race.”
