Nestomalt Marathons Energising the Nation
Nestomalt, our flagship brand and a household favourite with its positive nutritional profile of malt, barley and milk, sponsors Sri Lanka's biggest and most popular marathon every year to the delight of sport enthusiasts across the island.
Strongly supported by the local area authorities and national athletic associations, these marathons are eagerly awaited by thousands of would be participants. We created history in 2010 when we took our Nestomalt marathons to Jaffna. Our Nestomalt marathon was the first ever to be held in Jaffna in over 30 years and attracted over 5,000 excited participants from the previously conflict affected northern area.
Today our Nestomalt marathons have become much more than a sporting event - we have reached out and made a difference for many rural communities by providing an opportunity for talented athletes to be discovered and even represent the country internationally. The sea of yellow shirts is a sight to behold and attracts enormous media coverage.
