Gu Named Official Energy Gel of the 2023 Los Angeles Marathon presented by ASICS

LOS ANGELES & BERKELEY, Calif. – November 18, 2022 /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – GU Energy Labs and The McCourt Foundation (TMF) today announced that GU will be the official Energy Gel of The McCourt Foundation events beginning with The Rose Bowl Half Marathon & 5K in January and continuing with the 2023 Los Angeles Marathon presented by ASICS in March.

GU will provide its ultra-convenient, great-tasting Energy Gels to runners at aid stations on course to fuel their race for TMF events through 2025.

“After more than 30 years of working with GU and getting to know all of their products, and many of their employees, I am excited that GU will be providing on-course nutrition for our athletes across all of our events.  The products they create are the industry benchmark and I am happy to be affiliated with them for the next three years,” says John Duke, Senior Director of Partnerships for The McCourt Foundation.

As the creator of the first sports nutrition energy gel, GU has long been the top fuel choice of athletes, from elites chasing the podium to recreational runners trying for a new PR. The brand’s science-backed, athlete-proven formulas are loved not only for their effectiveness, but also for their innovative, fun flavors. At the Rose Bowl Half Marathon, runners will find the best-selling Tri-Berry Energy Gel offered alongside fan-favorite Birthday Cake and other tasty flavors.

“We couldn’t be more excited to be partnering with the McCourt Foundation,” says Brand Experience Manager Cody Logan. “They put on premier running events in Los Angeles and we’re looking forward to fueling their runners on course.”

On Sunday, March 23rd the Los Angeles Marathon will host over 20,000 runners along the 26.2-mile stadium-to-the-stars course which starts at Dodger Stadium and finishes on Avenue of the Stars in Century City.  For more information, visit LAmarathon.com.
