ElliptiGO Partners with Krave and KT Tape to Offer a VIP Experience to Meb’s Last Marathon

The once-in-a-lifetime opportunity will feature airfare and hotel to New York City for two, two VIP bleacher seats at the finish line, two tickets to Meb’s post-race celebration, an ElliptiGO bike and prize packs from Krave and KT Tape. The entire package is valued at $5,000. The contest ends Sunday, August 6, 2017. To enter, visit www.elliptigo.com/meb-vip-experience-giveaway

Keflezighi – known to legions of fans familiarly as “Meb” – has inspired generations of runners with his astounding list of accolades and passion for the sport. Keflezighi is the only athlete in history to win the New York Marathon, the Boston Marathon and an Olympic Medal, boasts countless top 10 finishes in World Marathon Majors and is a multiple-time U.S. Champion at various distances ranging from cross country to the marathon. What he is also known for is his support of the everyman runner, and he is often seen standing at the finish line of races, congratulating runners.

Among many things, Keflezighi, age 42, credits his longevity in the sport to cross-training on the ElliptiGO bike. He said, “ElliptiGO bikes are the closest you can get to running. I run in the morning, and now in the afternoon I no longer have to do a 30-minute run like I used to do. Instead, 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.”
