Seattle, WA (PRWEB) August 29, 2012
Nuun, the top-selling sports drink in run, bike, and outdoor specialty stores, will be the Official Hydration Sponsor of the 2012 and 2013 Nike Women’s Marathon and Half Marathon events (NWM). The Nike Women’s Marathon will return to San Francisco for its ninth year on October 14, 2012 and will celebrate its 10th year in October, 2013. Nuun is the Official Electrolyte Beverage and will be served at all on-course aid stations as well as the start and finish lines.
From its inception, Nuun has built its business by focusing on better health and performance through hydration. Beverages containing a large amount of sugar can accelerate the dehydration process; Nuun’s no sugar, portable electrolyte enhanced drink tablets are ideal for Nike Women’s Marathon runners. Nuun drink tablets turn water into a beverage containing the optimal balance of water and electrolytes to properly and efficiently hydrate the body. To prepare and support the runners, Nuun will be providing participants with hydration tips and education about training with Nuun on the NWM official Facebook page.
Nuun will also collaborate with Nike through sampling programs and educational clinics for participants at California-area training runs. These runs will be held at NIKETOWN San Francisco, Nike Santa Monica, and participating Fleet Feet, Forward Motion, Sierra Running Co, TranSports, Athletic Soles and Lombardi Sports locations in San Francisco, Sacramento, Berkeley, Davis, Pleasanton, Santa Rosa, Roseville, Fair Oaks, Menlo Park, Pleasant Hill and Chico.
NWM runners will be able to sample and purchase Nuun during the three days leading up to the race at the NWM Race Expotique located in Union Square, where participants will experience a premium opportunity to interact with partner brands. On race day runners will find Nuun at the start line near Niketown Union Square, at each hydration aid station along the course and at the scenic coastal finish line along The Great Highway.
“We are honored to be the sponsor of the Nike Women’s Marathon. As pioneers of portable, electrolyte hydration without sugar, Nuun is dedicated to improving health through hydration. We are proud to support these runners throughout their training and racing,” said Mason Reay, President and CEO of Nuun.
