Run Gum Getting an Extra Boost from Kickstarter

EUGENE, Ore. (March 6, 2018) —Run Gum, the energy supplement company, is launching a Kickstarter campaign to support its new extra strength formula. Run Gum Extra Strength will be available in a Spearmint flavor and contains 100 miligrams of caffeine, or two times the amount found per piece in the original formula.

“Nine times out of ten original Run Gum satisfies all my energy needs,” said Nick Symmonds, co-founder and CEO of Run Gum. “However, there are those few occasions – running a marathon, climbing a mountain, pulling an all-nighter – when I need something stronger. For those moments, and for people who have a high tolerance for caffeine, there is now Extra Strength Run Gum.”

Founded in 2014 by two-time track and field Olympian Symmonds and his coach Sam Lapray, Run Gum provides an instant, calorie-free, sugar-free boost for anyone from athletes to travelers. Now available nationwide, Run Gum has become a popular alternative to typical caffeinated drinks on the market.

The Kickstarter campaign is targeting $20,000 and ends on March 31, 2018.
