DELIVERLEAN TO PREPARE 22,000 HEALTHY MEALS FOR RUNNERS AT
DeliverLean, Florida's most trusted healthy gourmet delivery service, will prepare 22,000 healthy meals for runners at Sunday's Fitbit Miami Marathon And Half Marathon.
Runners will receive box lunches with either a Smoked Turkey Sandwich or Vegetarian Pesto Caprese Pasta Salad alongside a whole apple or orange and a cookie after they cross the finish line at Bayfront Park. The upgraded food offering is part of the execution of DeliverLean's strategic partnership to become the event's official athlete food sponsor.
The 22,000 meals will be prepared Thursday and Friday, January 25 and 26, at DeliverLean's commerical kitchen in Oakland Park, Florida. Media are invited to visit the facility by appointment and observe the meal preparation process.
"As we strive to fulfill our mission of making Miami the healthiest city in the country, we are excited to be partnering with one of the most iconic athletic events in Florida to provide all the runners with their post-race recovery meal kit," said DeliverLean Chief Marketing Officer Candy Tree.
DeliverLean will also be on-site at the post-race finish line festival at Bayfront Park to sample and sell its healthy grab-and-go meals to runners and spectators. The company will also have a presence at the Fitbit Miami Marathon And Half Marathon Expo Friday and Saturday at Mana Wynwood, sampling and selling healthy grab and go meals at booth #1143.
DeliverLean is also helping race participants focus on their training - not on their meal prep - by providing 15% off meal plans at DeliverLean.com with promo code MARATHON.
"I have been on the DeliverLean plan for several years now and can't think of a healthier way to fuel myself every day," said Fitbit Miami Marathon And Half Marathon Chief Running Officer Frankie Ruiz. "The convenience and freshness of the food are second to none and I am real excited that all of our runners will be able to get a taste of that experience."
