FuelBelt, Inc Commits to Sponsor Race Bibs for the RRCA Championship Event Series for Three Years

Arlington, VA - The Road Runners Club of America, the largest association of running clubs, events, and runners, is pleased to announce that FuelBelt, Inc. has renewed and increased their sponsorship with the RRCA to include sponsoring the race bibs for the RRCA Championship Event Series for the years 2011-2013.

The Championship bib program will provide free race bib numbers to all races designated as RRCA State, Regional or National Championships. The race bibs will have the event name, the runner’s number, and logos for RRCA and FuelBelt, Inc along with product discount offers for race participants.

Since 2005, FuelBelt, Inc has been the Official Hydration Delivery System for the RRCA and has provided product premiums for events, product discounts for club members, and more.  The renewed agreement will continue this tradition and will include increased product discounts for running club members and promotional support of the RRCA’s “Join a Club” membership recruitment effort. 

In addition, FuelBelt, Inc will become the Official Safety Partner of the RRCA and will provide product discounts for reflective gear and help promote runner’s safety through circulation of the RRCA’s Runners Etiquette brochure and other related runners’ safety tips.

Vinu Malik, FuelBelt’s CEO, comments, “RRCA does amazing work every year by providing the support to running clubs and races all across the country. This year we wanted to make a bigger statement in the running community by helping race directors produce bib numbers and help spread the importance of safety by providing essential hydration and reflective products to all RRCA members.”

“We are thrilled to have FuelBelt enhance their support of the RRCA Championship Event Series as their sponsorship of the bib program provides added value for the local event series hosts,” explained Jean Knaack, RRCA executive director.  “Having FuelBelt as our Official Safety Partner will also enable us to share runner’s safety tips with a larger audience.”
