We’re delighted to announce our new event partner Sportsbug, who have joined Hilly Helmet as a partner for our 2022 event.
An established independent local retailer, they offer an extensive range of up to date equipment, apparel and footwear to cater for many popular sports, operating from shops in Melksham and Trowbridge.
In addition, Sportsbug also offer a specialised ‘Running Room’ at the Trowbridge store which includes a treadmill enabling trained staff to advise customers on gait analysis to ensure they get the shoes most suited to their running style. Sportsbug also supply local sporting clubs with some of their special order items.
They will be attending Hilly Helmet on the night, donating prizes to the 1st male and female finishers, 1st 15-U18 male and female finishers and best helmet overall worn to take part in on the night, along with 7 spot prizes which will be awarded to finishers selected at random. We’re very grateful for their support. Sportsbug have also very kindly agreed a special discount for all Helmeteers and they hope to have a sales pitch available at the event, with more details to follow soon on what will be available.
Sportsbug sales manager Ben, a runner himself, will be taking on our hill for himself for his first attempt at Hilly Helmet while sporting a special helmet, no doubt with a Sportsbug connection!
