One Grand Prize Trip to the 2017 Honolulu Marathon in Honolulu, Hawaii
Eugene, Oregon – June 23, 2017
Run Gum today announced a promotion tied to the 2017 Honolulu Marathon in Hawaii this December.
One grand prize winner will be awarded a trip to the 2017 Honolulu Marathon along with a prize package totaling over $4,000. This grand prize package includes gear from Picky Bars, Brooks Running, Raw Elements, SOS Hydrate, Nathan Sports, Jay bird, and Stridebox.
Anyone is welcome to enter for a chance to win a trip to the 2017 Honolulu Marathon by signing up with their email address at rungum.com/RunAloha between now and July 31, 2017.
Also part of the prize package is a chance to run with Run Gum CEO, and two-time Olympian, Nick Symmonds. The marathon will be Nick’s final race and caps off a 12-year professional running career.
“I’ve always wanted to run a marathon,” says Symmonds. “I have crossed off nearly every other goal on my running bucket list. I think now is the perfect time to tackle 26.2 miles and I can’t think of a better place to do it than Honolulu.”
Symmonds, who made his career out of running two-laps around a track, admits that the longest run he has ever done is 13 miles.
“To be completely honest, I am not totally sure I can finish a marathon. Certainly not in the shape I am in right now. But I have a great team around me to help me train for the next 5 months. By December 10th I hope to be in the kind of shape to finish the marathon in under 3 hours.”
To learn more about how Nick plans to prepare for this year’s Honolulu Marathon or to contact him please email email@example.com to set up an interview.
