PRLog - May 16, 2012 - May 16, 2012; Woodstock, CT – Slated as one of the best relays in the country, the Reach the Beach Relay has become a sought-after, long-distance race by runners of all abilities.
The PORON Cushioning Team is pleased to announce that it is a 2012 sponsor of this highly anticipated 200-mile relay that takes place May 18-19 in Massachusetts and September 14-15 in New Hampshire.
The Reach the Beach Relay concept is quite simple. Teams consist of 12 members who run three legs ranging between three to eight miles depending on difficulty. At the finish line, all team members are greeted with live music, hot food and cold beverages, and celebrate by sharing stories about their experiences along the course. From the elite runner down to the novice jogger, it is the perfect relay for anyone.
"We are excited to team up with the Reach the Beach Relay for a second year" says Dave Sherman, New Business Development Manager, PORON Cushioning. "PORON Cushioning has grown to be a key cushioning and shock absorbing ingredient for a variety of running footwear brands and styles. Participating in the event not only allows us to present our brand partners' products with PORON Cushioning, but also gives us a chance to support a great group of athletes."
Reach the Beach Relay started 13 years ago in New Hampshire. Due to the race’s huge success, and numerous requests from athletes around New England, race organizers added the Massachusetts race in 2011 to test the expansion model. This year, Reach the Beach is adding an event in New Jersey.
“Bringing PORON Cushioning on as a partner has been great for the event,” said Paul Dionne, Reach the Beach Relay Manager. “The PORON Cushioning Team brought a great product and tremendous enthusiasm to our family at the New Hampshire race last year. We are looking forward to having them at our 2012 MA and NH Relays, and to a long relationship together.”
