Buffera, the UK distributors of Buff® Headwear and Apparel is pleased to announce their headline sponsorship of the Lightning 12hr which takes place on Sunday 25th March 2012 at Eastnor Castle in Herefordshire

Organised by Pro-Velo Support, which also organises the Adidas Thunder Run 24, the Buff® Lightning 12hr is a 12 hour off-road running event open for solo runners, pairs and teams of 5. Set in the heart of the Malvern Hills, within the stunning grounds of Eastnor Castle Deer Park, the 10k circuit weaves its way through breathtaking scenery, up and down the hills and through dense woodland – some of which will have to be negotiated in the dark. Ample course marking, a mid-point drinks station and plenty of marshals will ensure that competitors can concentrate on enjoying the challenge and tackling the terrain.

Sarah Gowans of Buffera Ltd, commented, “Pro-Velo Support has a reputation for providing first class events for all ages and abilities with an emphasis on the needs of the competitor and the personal challenge rather than the race. These are values which we feel are reflected in the Buff® brand. We’re delighted to be title sponsor and as part of our involvement will be supplying prizes across both our headwear and technical apparel collections. Buff® Apparel is perfect for trail running due to its comfort, fit and use of technical fabrics resulting in high performance garments while Buff® Headwear is wick able, breathable and wind resistant to give effective climate control for the competitors in an endurance race such as the Lightning 12. With all this in mind, the Buff® Lightning 12hr represents a perfect match of activity with Buff® products.”

Entry for the 2012 event is open from 1st December 2011 via www.runnersworld.co.uk a copy of the entry form can also be downloaded here: www.provelosupport.co.uk

Buff® Headwear and Apparel can be found in all good outdoor and cycle stores or online at www.buffwear.co.uk.
