VILSA Mineralwasser

  VILSA mineral water at Olivaer Platz behind kilometre 33

  All participants will receive a bottle of VILSA mineral water in the finish bag

VILSA is a natural mineral water. It comes from a deep spring that has been protected from the outside world and harmful environmental influences by thick layers of clay for thousands of years. It is not for nothing that VILSA mineral water is so pure. It also owes its light, low-sodium mineralisation and mild taste to the thick layers of rock that filter every drop on its way to the spring. This makes it the perfect accompaniment for sporting activities and your well-being.

VILSA is actively committed to sustainability under the motto "Protecting Tomorrow Today". The brand is committed to environmentally friendly measures such as the use of 100% recycled PET for disposable bottles and the protection of natural sources. Combining refreshing enjoyment with environmental awareness, VILSA is a choice that not only quenches today's thirst, but also protects future generations.
