WICHITA, KANSAS, UNITED STATES, October 5, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ — Hiland Dairy is Proud to Bring MilkPEP’s 26.2 Campaign to the Wichita Prairie Fire Marathon to Sponsor Women Runners and Empower the Next Generation in Partnership With Girls on the Run
Hiland Dairy continues Milk’s 26.2 campaign, a nationwide support program for all-female marathon runners. As a part of this program, Hiland Dairy is proud to support women participating in the Prairie Fire Marathon in Wichita on October 8th.
Through Hiland’s sponsorship, female runners are invited to join #TeamMilk, an inspiring online community of women runners. #TeamMilk participants receive female-centric nutrition and training tips, advice from leading experts, exclusive swag at the race, and more. #TeamMilk runners, or those looking to sign up, can stop by Hiland Dairy’s 26.2 booth at the Prairie Fire Expo on Saturday, October 7, to pick up swag and collect cowbells for their supporters to cheer them on during the race.
Once runners cross the finish line, Hiland Dairy will be ready to help everyone refuel with Chocolate Milk, with an ideal 3:1 protein-to-carb ratio for recovery. Whether participants sign up for the 5K or are running their first marathon, research shows dairy milk is a great nutritional partner during training. Milk’s nutrients help provide sustained energy and hydration to fuel runs and help refuel, repair, and rebuild tired muscles post-run.
Even better, when women runners sign up for #TeamMilk, their run benefits future runners through the campaign’s partnership with Girls on the Run, an organization dedicated to empowering girls through running and physical activity. For every woman that joins #TeamMilk running a full or half marathon at Prairie Fire, Hiland Dairy will donate a dollar to Girls on the Run Heart of Kansas for each mile they run on race day!
To learn more about #TeamMilk or sign up, please visit Hiland Dairy’s 26.2 booth at the Prairie Fire Marathon Expo.
