LAKEWOOD, Colo., May 10, 2022
/PRNewswire/ -- Natural Grocers® is proud to be a returning
corporate sponsor for the 2022 16th annual Denver Colfax
Marathon (May 13 – 15). The
largest family-operated organic and natural grocery retailer in the
U.S. will also have a strong presence at this year's Health and
Fitness Expo at Empower Field at Mile High, May 13 – 14.
This now iconic marathon was created in 2006 by the cities of
Aurora, Denver and Lakewood to encourage Coloradoans to be
healthier in the Mile High City. While remaining a local race, The
Colfax Marathon now attracts runners from across the country and
around the world.
Founded in 1955, Natural Grocers has strong Colorado roots of its own. With 42 stores
across the state, it might surprise some that the first
brick-and-mortar location opened on West Colfax Avenue in
Lakewood, CO. But there's more to
this second-year sponsorship than the location coincidence.
Raquel Isely, Vice President of
Marketing states, "We're thrilled to be an active part of such a
fantastic event like the Denver Colfax Marathon. It's our biggest
sponsorship event of the year and goes hand-in-hand with our
dedication to Community (one of our Five Founding Principles).
We're excited to connect with athletes and visitors at this year's
Expo and support the participants on race day. When we support our
communities, we help shape a better world for all."
Natural Grocers believes that everyone should have access to
nutritional education and live in a thriving, regenerating
environment. To assist with this mission, Nutritional Health
Coaches from Natural Grocers will be onsite (Booth #10, on the West
Club Side) to talk about nutritional health with athletes.
Natural Grocers' good4u® Crew will also be onsite
handing out free, reusable Natural Grocers tote bags with a variety
of high-quality vendor samples. At the finish line, participants
will receive a free, Natural Grocers reusable tote bag with a
$5 off Natural Grocers
Coupon[ii] and a Natural Grocers Brand
And finally, onlookers might even spy some Natural Grocers
good4u Crew members running their avocado-fueled-hearts out as
a relay team. Crew members will be available for high-fives and
words of encouragement upon request.
- Online registration closes Wednesday, May 11th at 11:59 PM.
- Registration reopens in-person at the Expo May 13-14.
