AFRICANX welcomes PICKLE JUICE as Title Sponsor in 2023

“Let Nature Give You A Run For Your Money”


Stillwater Sports, the organisers of South Africa’s premier three-day stage trail run are excited to welcome PICKLE JUICE as the title sponsor of the AFRICANX TRAILRUN in 2023.

“We’re thrilled to welcome PICKLE JUICE as the Title Sponsor of South Africa’s leading three-day stage trail run, the AFRICANX TRAILRUN,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director of Stillwater Sports and Event Founder. “Although a memorable ‘PARTY ON FOOT’, AFRICANX is a demanding event that requires athletes to manage their energy reserves over a three-day event. To be able to run comfortably for three consecutive days, runners need to put in the training if the goal is to podium or at least finish strong. We are excited to welcome a Title Sponsor that can help athletes achieve their goal. Created for endurance athletes, PICKLE JUICE is formulated to stop muscle cramps and help athletes to stay hydrated, making it the perfect partner to have at a three-day stage trail run. We can’t wait to introduce entrants to the benefits of this amazing product at the 2023 PICKLE JUICE AFRICANX TRAILRUN. Trail runners still have time to enter to #RunTheAfricanX. Entries close on Monday 06 March.”
