Nedbank Running Club has renewed its ‘Official Water Partnership’ with natural spring water brand THIRSTI.
This sees the two parties enter the second year of their partnership.
“On average, an athlete consumes roughly 500ml per hour of running, plus three litres pre and post a marathon or more,” says Nedbank Running Club Founder Nick Bester, who confirms he hasn’t consumed tap water in over 10 years. “Even when not running, I consume 4-5 litres of water per day. Remember that quality water helps to not only build and restore oneself, but rids the body of toxins too. It’s therefore crucial to ensure your body receives goodness in every drop, which is why we count ourselves extremely fortunate to have water that has passed through natural aquifers and is thus exceptional in quality, which in turn will enhance our performances. With the backing of THIRSTI, there’s no reason why we can’t continue our podium finishes throughout 2022.”

Sourced deep within the ground from two sources – one in the Klein Drakenberg mountains of northern KwaZulu-Natal and the other in the Tulbagh basin of the Cape Winelands – THIRSTI water has each drop filtered through underground rock, leaving a pure alkaline and health-promoting water, free of synthetic toxins.
“Quality hydration is such a crucial aspect of high performance sport,” says THIRSTI Head of Marketing Michelle Lillico. “Already the hydration partner to the Comrades Marathon, it is fitting and an honour to align ourselves with the top calibre and professionalism of SA’s premier running club.”
