This year, Turkey Trot anywhere!
NORWALK, Conn., Nov. 17, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lace up your running shoes! Reed’s Inc. (NASDAQ: REED), America’s #1 ginger company, is proud to announce its sponsorship of the first ever “World’s Best Turkey Trot” – a virtual 1M, 5K and 10K race that brings a new running tradition to the Thanksgiving weekend. Encouraging families across the country to get out and “trot,” Reed’s is the presenting sponsor for the 1M “Fun Run” to kick up the holiday spirit.
The virtual race will be held from November 25th – 28th, and registered runners are invited to participate anywhere and upload their tracked mileage to a custom race dashboard. Keeping with the season of giving, a portion of the proceeds from the race will go to support the World Food Program USA, in partnership with Charity Miles, based on the total miles run.
“Turkey Trots have become an essential part of the Thanksgiving holiday. Now, with the WBTT, runners and families have a safe and virtual format so they can ‘trot’ anywhere they want,” said Matt Linick, Race Director. “We are excited to bring together communities and share a “new way” to tradition this year and raise money for a great charity at the same time.”
Offering an immersive race experience, all participants will compete for awards and prizes on a virtual leaderboard, as well as receive the inaugural “World's Best Turkey Trot” race kit. Shipped directly to each runner after the race, the kit contains a finisher medal, race t-shirt and items from event sponsors, including Reed’s® Wellness Ginger Shots.
“Athletes and families alike are increasingly turning to superfoods, like ginger, to boost wellness. We look forward to giving runners and families a healthy and delicious dose of ginger this Thanksgiving,” shared Lindsay Martin, VP Marketing of Reed’s Inc. “WBTT and Reed’s are both grounded in healthy fun, and in just being a part, you have made a good choice. Reed’s range of REAL ginger products are perfect before and after the run. Shoot a Ginger Wellness shot before the race, or cheers with a Ginger Ale after. Drink Reed’s & Be Well.”
In celebration of the virtual Thanksgiving race, Reed’s will be giving away a Reed’s Ginger Binge Box, along with a $100 Therapist Preferred Gift Card, JBL Endurance Peak Waterproof Headphones, “World’s Best Turkey Trot” long sleeve t-shirt, compression socks and an inflatable turkey to get into the holiday spirit.
