From the UK: A 24-Hour Race

Our friend Mark Davies from the CLIF UK field marketing crew was out at Run24, a 24-hour individual and team relay race that took place a couple weekends back. Check out the recap! Now a 24-hour running race may sound completely alien to most of you and something of an impossibility. However, Run24 is made even tougher as you have to endure the same 5-mile loop throughout the race.

Brighton Your Day with Clif Bar!

The Clif Bar UK field marketing crew was out in force for the second Brighton Marathon on Sunday 10th April. Clif Bar had played its part since the start, attending training seminars since November. We've also supported weekly training runs in providing CLIF Bars and SHOT Bloks for all, and the Expo day before saw us sampling our wares. And for the first time in the UK, members of the Clif Pace Team were in attendance, to help secure those PBs. Come race day, two feed stations were prepared for the 10,000 runners to pass through at miles 12 and…
