(from media release)
Little Rock Marathon officials announced yesterday that Premium Refreshment Service has renewed its sponsorship of the Little Rock Marathon.
Premium Refreshment Service, an Arkansas-based water company, will be hydrating more than 15,000 participants and volunteers throughout race weekend with their 100% natural spring water.
Unlike most water which is municipally sourced and artificially enhanced, Premium Refreshment Service water is 100% spring water with nothing added. Sourced and bottled in Arkansas from natural springs that are naturally pressurized so the water rises to the surface without mechanical pumps or human interference.
“Hydration is key for leading an active lifestyle and maintaining a healthy diet, so it’s a natural fit for Premium Refreshment Service to be a part of our event,” said Geneva Lamm, co-executive director of the Little Rock Marathon. “Premium Refreshment’s commitment to healthy living is aligned with the mission of the Little Rock Marathon. We are fortunate to work with one of the purest and best tasting water companies in the South.”
The 17th Annual Little Rock Marathon Race Weekend, presented by the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, is slated for March 1 – 3 in downtown Little Rock and benefits Little Rock Parks & Recreation.
Race weekend includes the Little Rock Marathon Health & Fitness Expo, present by Heifer International; the Little Rock Marathon; the Little Rock Half Marathon, presented by Baptist Health; the Little Rock 10K; the Little Rock 5K, presented by Arkansas Federal Credit Union and the Little Rockers Kids Marathon, presented by the Hatcher Agency.
