Leading South African footwear brand, Olympic International, has announced that it will partner with The Rock Mountain Bike and Trail Run Festival as the official footwear sponsor. The event, now in its second year, takes place at Rhebokskloof Estate from 27 to 29 September this year.
Considered one of Paarl’s biggest MTB and trail events, The Rock attracts more than 1 000 participants. Says Fahiem Frizlar, Marketing Manager at Bolton Footwear: “We’re thrilled to partner with The Rock. We believe that our association with an event of this stature will not only grow awareness around cycling and trail running, but also allow us to showcase the technical capabilities of our sports shoes, specifically our cycling range. Furthermore, we want to create more awareness of the Share A Pair initiative, whereby used sports shoes aredistributed to needy children and adult charity organisations. There is no better way to raise this awareness than amongst sporty and active people.”
The 2019 edition of the race will offer riders a three-day mountain bike stage race with a distance of 48km to 54km per day and elevation of 950m to 13 000m per day. There will also be a two-day trail- run and seven other individual rides and runs on the weekend for families to enjoy.
Olympic International will provide bins at various events around the country over the next few months. Frizlar concludes: “Share A Pair and pay it forward to someone in need. Donate your preloved sports clothing and footwear at any of the Olympic International bins provided at events. Everything collected will be distributed to needy beneficiaries.”
Olympic International offers an exciting range of cycling gear including four cycling shoe styles as well as cycling shirts and shorts for the active, adventure-seeking individual. Their technical and functional footwear offers the ideal combination of lightweight, waterproof fabrics, high-grip soles and the optimum all-day cycling comfort at an affordable price.
