Nuun 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 Oct. 14 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
“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.
The Nike Women’s Marathon is the largest women’s running race in the

runners. Over its 8-year history, the event has helped The Leukemia
& Lymphoma Society’s Team In Training Program raise over $118
million dollars to fight blood cancer. Nuun supports The Leukemia &
Lymphoma Society through sales of co-branded Team In Training products
