AUSTIN, Texas /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – High Five Events, one of the largest privately owned event production companies in the United States, welcomes back Nuun as the Official Hydration of the 3M Half Marathon. The agreement means Nuun will hydrate runners chasing their half marathon Personal Records (PR) through 2023. The 29th annual 3M Half Marathon takes place on January 22, 2023.
“The Nuun team is thrilled to be back on the streets of Austin hydrating one of the most fun and fastest half marathons in the country,” said Mike Sommers, Community Marketing Director. “Together with High Five Events we are realizing our mission of inspiring more movement, and we look forward to being a small part of an incredible runner experience at the 3M Half Marathon.”
Nuun Endurance will be available at all aid stations and the start and finish lines. Nuun Endurance is designed with efficient carbohydrates and optimized electrolytes to keep you moving during high intensity and/or prolonged endurance exercise. It contains a precise mix of efficient carbs and optimized electrolytes to help deliver fluids as well as minimize gastric distress during endurance exercise. In addition, Nuun and the 3M Half Marathon will increase community engagement and product awareness by offering free samples and product discounts, sampling Nuun at running stores, and supporting various demo runs around Austin.
“Nuun continues to hydrate thousands of PRs at 3M Half Marathon and we’re glad they’ll fuel thousands more,” said Jack Murray, co-owner of High Five Events. “We will continue to expand our community engagement opportunities, and educate athletes on the benefits of an effective hydration plan with Nuun.”
The 3M Half Marathon boasts one of the fastest 13.1-mile courses in the country. Runners enjoy a point-to-point course with mostly downhill running that showcases some of Austin’s finest locations. Starting in north Austin and finishing near the Texas State Capitol, runners will appreciate a 306’ net elevation drop. Participants can register on the website.
