Pittsburgh Marathon is thrilled to announce a new partnership with Nuun, as Official Hydration Partner

Pittsburgh Three Rivers Marathon, Inc. (P3R), one of the nation’s premier endurance organizations, is thrilled to announce a new partnership with Nuun, the #1 selling sports drink product in the running, cycling and outdoor specialty marketplaces. Nuun will serve as the Official Hydration Partner of the award-winning DICK’S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon weekend of events, one of the 20 largest marathon and half marathon events in the nation.

“At P3R, we think that Nuun’s products are the absolute best option for runners and other athletes seeking a healthy and sustainable hydration option.” said Troy Schooley, P3R’s senior vice president of partnerships and sales. “Our goal at P3R is to help every runner cross the finish line, and we’re confident that our partnership with Nuun will help our runners achieve their next personal bests.”

Nuun will provide their sports drink optimized for longer distance endurance events at all aid stations along the DICK’S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon course. The products will help runners maintain adequate hydration throughout the race, offering every participant the opportunity to achieve a personal best on race day ― whether that is beating a previous race time, crossing the finish line with a loved one or running farther than they ever have before.

"Nuun is thrilled to work with the remarkable team at P3R and hydrate their participants at the DICK’S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon,” said Kevin Rutherford, Nuun President and CEO. “We are on a mission to inspire movement and look forward to celebrating the achievements of the nearly 40,0000 runners along the three rivers in May.”

This organic partnership will extend beyond the DICK’S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon weekend of events. Nuun has signed a contract to support participants at all of P3R’s events, including the Liberty Mile, GAP Relay presented by UPMC Health Plan and EQT Pittsburgh 10 Miler.
