SURREY HILLS CHALLENGE SPONSORS HOLD FREE EVENING WITH TOBIAS MEWS

Saturday 15 September 2018

To celebrate the new partnership between Trekking & Outdoors and Aussie Grit Apparel, you’re invited to a special free of charge event at the Surrey Hills Challenge & Festival of Sport event village from 6pm at Denbies, Dorking on Saturday, September 22 with adventurer Tobias Mews and local trail running coach Jude Palmer – freebies and light refreshments included.

TOBIAS MEWS – WORLD CLASS ADVENTURE ATHLETE

On the eve of the Surrey Hills Challenge, join us at the Event Village at Denbies Vineyard at 6pm to hear Aussie Grit Apparel ambassador Tobias Mews – one of the world’s leading adventure journalists, with over 200 extreme adventure races under his belt and two books to his name – recall his latest amazing adventures and explore what it takes to create and take on your own new challenge. 

JUDE PALMER – RUN SURREY HILLS

Afterwards Jude Palmer, trail running coach from Run Surrey Hills will be there to talk you through everything from race prep to post-race recovery, and answer any trail running questions you may have.

FREEBIES!

If you need even more encouraging to venture out and join us, we have a limited number of Tobias’ books to give away, which you can get signed by the man himself – either his latest release GO! An inspirational Guide to Getting Outside and Challenging Yourself or his first best seller 50 Races to Run before You Die.  But be warned…it’s first in, first served!

Shere-based Trekking & Outdoors – an iconic store known to cater for every solution for trekkers and trail runners – will be handing out 10% off discount vouchers for all in-store purchases of Aussie Grit Apparel’s flint  range.

Denbies Vineyard will be opening their food stall up for complimentary light refreshments throughout the evening.

WHAT ELSE?

You’ll have the opportunity to get your hands on and ask questions about the latest range of Aussie Grit Apparel.  If you’re new to the brand, it’s an Australian start-up founded by former Formula One driver, Mark Webber.  Aussie Grit Apparel’s first collection of garments (called flint) has been specifically designed for off-road running and cycling.

It’s also the perfect opportunity to pick the brains of us, the event organisers, ahead of the Surrey Hills Challenge the following day.

Both Trekking & Outdoors and Aussie Grit Apparel will be on site on Sunday, September 23 at the Festival of Sport.

No booking advanced booking required. We look forward to seeing you there!
