Whole Foods Market Columbia to Sponsor 2015 Iron Girl Columbia Half Marathon
UCF Races and the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults are proud to announce a partnership with Whole Foods Market Columbia for the 2015 Iron Girl Columbia Half Marathon & Family 5K.
With a focus on providing the community with natural and organic products and ways to lead a healthy lifestyle, Whole Foods Market Columbia will now serve as the presenting sponsor for the 13.1 mile women’s race and 5K family race to be held on September 12, 2015.
Known as one of the best women’s events in the Mid-Atlantic, the Iron Girl Columbia Half Marathon & Family 5K, enhances the participant race experience even more with this partnership with Whole Foods Market Columbia, offering participants complimentary and discounted food items, nutrition tips and access to other all natural products on race day and in the months leading up to the event.
The Iron Girl Columbia Half Marathon & Family 5K will start and finish at the Columbia Town Center, home to the 45,000 square foot Whole Foods Market which opened in late 2014.
While on the 13.1 mile course route, participants will pass the store location twice and all participants and spectators will have the opportunity to take part in a post-race celebration at the square adjacent to the store.
“Whole Foods Market Columbia has been a partner of the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults since it opened last year. In addition to being located on the race course, this partnership makes sense to us as we focus on the health and wellness of our community,” said Brian Satola, UCF Races Race Director. “We’re thrilled to have Whole Foods Market Columbia as the presenting sponsor, their presence and participation will not only enhance our event, but also strengthen our community in Howard County.”
Svetlana Bautista, Store Team Leader, says,
“We are excited to continue this partnership and support the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults. Supporting our community is one of Whole Foods Market’s core values, and this is a great opportunity for us at Whole Foods Market Columbia to serve our neighbors and cheer for our community as they cross the finish line.”
