ElliptiGO Teams with Maui Jim and Competitor Group to offer “Ultimate Meb Experience”

Winners will get an ElliptiGO bike and VIP access to running legend

SAN DIEGO, Calif. (April 24, 2017) – ElliptiGO Inc., creator of the world’s first elliptical bicycle, has teamed with Maui Jim Sunglasses and the Competitor Group’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series to offer the Ultimate Meb Experience – an amazing trip for two, the chance to spend quality time with marathon legend Meb Keflezighi, an ElliptiGO bike, and a package of other prizes.

Keflezighi is retiring from professional running this year. The four-time US Olympian is on a “farewell tour” of sorts, having just completed the Boston Marathon and now preparing to host runners in his hometown Synchrony Financial Rock ‘n’ Roll San Diego Marathon & ½ Marathon.

The Ultimate Meb Experience includes roundtrip airfare and three hotel nights for two people, two VIP entries to the race of their choice, dinner and a pre-race shakeout run with Keflezighi, an ElliptiGO 8C elliptical bike, a personalized Maui Jim Sunglasses fitting and CEP compression socks.

“Meb has been an outstanding ambassador not only for ElliptiGO, but for the entire sport of running,” said Bryce Whiting, Chief Enthusiast at ElliptiGO. “He is a hard-working, authentic and caring person. Through the Ultimate Meb Experience, we’re proud to honor him and give other people the chance to get to know him as we have over the years.”

Keflezighi frequently talks about the benefits of cross-training on an ElliptiGO bike, and he’s often seen riding around the San Diego area. In 2014, after Keflezighi’s stunning Boston Marathon victory, ElliptiGO introduced a limited edition “Meb 8S” elliptical bike to celebrate his exceptional running career and in recognition of the impact his Boston win had for the entire country. The special patriotic-themed edition bore Meb’s name and his motto, “Run To Win.”
