Slanghoek Triathlon
The organisers of the action packed Slanghoek Triathlon are proud to welcome Vital Health Foods as the official presenting sponsor of this much loved event. Taking place on Sunday, 27 October 2013 participants can choose between a Junior Triathlon, a Short MTB Triathlon, a Long MTB Triathlon or a Road Bike Triathlon.
According to Gerry Nhlapo, Vital’s Food and Beverages brand manager; it is an honour for Vital Health Foods to be a part of such a big event. “Vital is committed to being a part of our customer’s family nucleus in ensuring we all maintain a healthy, fun lifestyle. We have been striving for this since our inception in 1947. This particular event is sponsored by Vital Mini Rice cakes, and like the event our mini rice cakes are fun, determined, enduring, courageous and quite frankly daring – yet enjoyable,” says Nhlapo.

“The Slanghoek Triathlon is a well-established and exciting event to be a part of,” continues Nhlapo. “My hope is for our partnership to encourage many more people to participate in triathlon events in the future. We encourage all participants to pursue wellness through a healthy lifestyle, because good health is Vital”.
