ElliptiGO Offers the Opportunity to Win Meb’s Bike

Win the Last of 100 Limited Edition Meb 8S Elliptical Bikes

SAN DIEGO, Calif. (September 1, 2016) – ElliptiGO Inc. announced today the #GOMeb Limited Edition ElliptiGO Bike Giveaway, giving fans an opportunity to win Olympian Meb Keflezighi’s ElliptiGO 8S elliptical bike.  In honor of Keflezighi’s fourth and final appearance at the Games, and as tribute to his fantastic career – which includes a 2004 Olympic silver medal, a 2009 New York City Marathon victory and the famous 2014 Boston Marathon victory – ElliptiGO is giving away the last of the 100 GOMeb Limited Edition 8S elliptical bikes. The contest will run from September 1 through Labor Day on September 5.

The #GOMeb 8S has a custom red, white and blue matte paint job to honor “America’s Marathoner.” It also features a list of Keflezighi’s top running accomplishments through his historic 2014 Boston Marathon victory, his signature and his motto – “Run to Win.” The ElliptiGO 8S model, which is not currently offered, sports a convenient folding steering column and carbon-fiber drive arms and platforms, features otherwise only found on the top-end 11R ElliptiGO bike model.

At 41 years old, Keflezighi is the oldest American marathoner to run in the Olympics. The ElliptiGO bike has been his cross-training tool of choice for several years, helping him optimize recovery, increase his volume and keep up with the high mileage he needs for marathon distance success.

“I’ve been running for over 26 years. As I get older I have to be smarter and wiser about my training,” Keflezighi said. “ElliptiGO bikes are the closest you can get to running. I ElliptiGO for 1.5-2 hours about five days a week. That enhances my cardiovascular system and gets me fitter and stronger with no impact whatsoever.”

“We could not be more proud of Meb for the accomplishments he’s achieved both on and off the race-course,” said Bryan Pate, CEO and co-founder of ElliptiGO. “When we first made this limited edition elliptical bike for him in 2014, it was about more than just his athletics; it was about all he came to represent as ‘America’s Marathoner.’  We are pleased to offer the opportunity for someone to win this bike and truly train like Meb.”
