Matthew Orme, Director of Wenlock Spring, commented; "We will be hydrating runners at the Apley Estate Multi Terrain Run for the third year running. A truly worthy cause - running in aid of local churches, St Chad’s Stockton and St Milburga’s Beckbury with the Black Country Triathletes. The latest addition to our PET range – the 250ml sports cap bottle, will be used to hydrate and refresh runners. Hopefully our Shropshire spring water will provide them with that extra burst of energy they need to complete the course!”
