BladeRun goes international

Dutch franchise opens up new era of light-hearted powerboating

BladeRun Global HQ has announced the launch of its first official Franchise, the Netherlands BladeRun.

BladeRun which was launched four years ago as a lifestyle event of choice for those looking to marry their love for the sea with adventure and glamorous parties. Although a UK BladeRun didn’t happen in 2009 it is now accepted as a global series of powerboat rallies held at international up-market destinations and is the first marine event of its kind to franchise its own unique winning formula. High powered enthusiasts can participate in various ways, running their own boats or by simply selecting from the BladeRun list of approved charter boats which cover every taste, from high performance craft to the sublime champagne luxury of the sports yachts.

The Netherlands Franchise has been taken on by the well respected media company
‘Down the River Group BV’ and July 2010 will see the massive launch of this showcase event as the BladeRun Global concept goes from strength to strength. Franchises are also planned for 2010 in Brazil and Malaysia. BladeRun’s Founder, Duncan Scholes, is looking forward to the opportunities this partnership will produce

“The BladeRun has always received a fantastic reception in the Netherlands, so what better location to have the first official BladeRun franchise. The Down the River Group has really grasped the whole ethos of the Blade Run and we’re really excited about working with them.”
