Run Hood to Coast with Nuun

It’s that time again.  For a third year in a row, Nuun will be forming teams to run the infamous Hood to Coast relay and help hydrate the running masses. During the 197 mile relay from Mt. Hood to the Oregon coast, you’ll run, cheer, sleep (probably not), stay hydrated with Nuun, and have the best weekend of your life. Or at least we think so.

We’re excited to accept 20 women to form 2 teams, and this year, we’re looking for NEW faces to join us. So if you’ve never run Hood to Coast with Nuun before we want to get to know you!

When is it?
Hood to Coast Relay: August 23-24

Other Travel Dates to Keep in Mind: Festivities will start on Wednesday August 21st.  For sure, you’ll need to be in Seattle no later than August 22nd . Most runners schedule departure for Sunday August 25th in the afternoon.

What will you be responsible for?
– Bring yourself, your running gear, your sense of adventure
– You are responsible for travel to/from Seattle

What will Nuun provide?

  • Airport shuttle to/from Sea Tac airport
  • Swag.  Lots of swag.
  • Fun, but optional activities on Wednesday and Thursday leading up to race day, lodging provided
  • Vans for transport to the race start and for the race itself
  • Food and hydration for the race
  • Team accommodations at the finish line
  • Shuttle from finish line back to Seattle or Sea Tac airport Sunday

7 Top 10 Finishers At Honda Classic

High winds, low temperatures, and tough course conditions are not usually the norm for this time of the year in South Florida.  Although, these variables did not hold off an elite field of golfers in the 2013 Honda Classic in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.

A star-studded group of the best PGA Tour players in the world traveled to the Champion Course at the PGA National Resort to compete in Jack Nicklaus’s annual tournament.  With punishing conditions all week, it was sure to make for an exciting event.

The shot of the tournament came on the final day when Nuun fan Geoff Ogilvy, chipped in for a 41ft birdie behind the 16th green, to

put some pressure on leader Michael Thompson, sending a loud roar from the crowd throughout PGA National.  Ogilvy went on to birdie 18 to finish with a final round score of 69, putting him alone in 2nd place.  Congrats Geoff!

Although, it was not enough to overcome eventual winner Michael Thompson, who recorded his first PGA Tour win with a 69, one of only five rounds under par in the 4th round.

It was a very exciting tournament for Nuun users, with 7 Nuun fans finishing in the top 10.  Way to go guys!  Clearly it pays off to be properly hydrated!  Here is a list of the notable finishers.

 

Geoff Ogilvy – T2

Keegan Bradley – T4

Lucas Glover – T4

Justin Rose – T4

Charl Schwartzel – T5

Chris Stroud – T6

Boo Weekley – T9

Nuun Notes:

Longer days and hotter temperatures can often get golfers into trouble with dehydration, so make sure to remember your Nuun and stay hydrated this golf season!  With a variety of different flavor options, Nuun is the perfect way to increase your h2o intake to stay hydrated.  Also, keep an eye out for our new flavors, Watermelon, Cherry Limeade, and Lemonade coming soon!
