Leading bathroom, plumbing and heating manufacturers Inta and Zilmet, based in Hixon, Staffordshire, were the proud sponsors of the Trent 100 event this year for the second year in a row.

Now in its third year, the Trent 100 is the UK’s longest team endurance challenge for stand-up paddle boarders. The two-day event took place from Friday 3rd to Saturday 4th August, starting in Shugborough Hall and finishing in Nottingham at the Nottingham Riverside Festival of World Music and Arts.

A spokesperson for Trent 100 said: “We were very grateful to be supported again by Inta and Zilmet, which has helped us grow into a globally appealing adventure sport challenge that attracts athletes from around the world. This year we saw more than 100 challengers test their fitness and teamwork in the beautiful English countryside.”

Teams taking part paddled along the River Trent for the two days, covering 100km of fast water before crossing the finish line.

Cynthia Fisher, of Inta and Zilmet, said: “We were delighted to sponsor this exciting event for the second year running. It is wonderful to see such a unique, fun-filled adventure challenge taking place in the local community, starting from Shugborough Hall.”

Headquartered in Hixon, Inta is one of the UK’s leading bathroom, plumbing and heating manufacturers and has been developing and producing products for more than 15 years. Meanwhile Zilmet, a group company, is an internationally-renowned - and Europe’s largest - expansion vessel and heat plate exchanger manufacturer.
