PowerBar is offering athletes who didn’t get in to the NYC Marathon 2017 a chance to run the race this fall!!

“Last year, 80K runners entered the TCS NYC Marathon 2016 lottery, but only 20K were selected for the race. This year, PowerBar wants to offer those who find themselves unlucky after the lottery drawing on March 2ndanother shot at getting a bib. And for those hundreds of runners who found themselves on the “Did Not Finish” list from marathons past due to injuries, fatigue or just a bout of bad luck, PowerBar is offering a do-over they so desperately want and need.

PowerBar believes everyone deserves a Clean Start, so to help launch the new Clean Whey product line, they are offering 17 deserving athletes the chance to approach the starting line at the 2017 TCS NYCMarathon. 26.2 miles. 17 Clean Starts.”

From March 1, 2017 through April 12, 2017, runners can visit PowerBarCleanStart.com and share why they deserve a Clean Start at the 2017 TCS NYC Marathon. Winners will receive a race bib (entry to the race), along with training tips from PowerBar athletes, PowerBar product and gear leading up to the race.”

Note: You don’t have to have applied for entry to NYC Marathon in order to enter the Clean Start contest! Anyone can enter and explain why they deserve a “clean start!”

  1. Hello!
    I want to bring something new to the table here. Recently I’ve been trying this new product that a friend of mine gave me as samples. At first I was little skeptical about it but now I can say this stuff WORKS!! I couldn’t believe how powerful this is and how fast it works on you, I’ve been mind blown about it. But don’t take my word for it. I encourage you to try it and find out for yourself how AWESOME this product is. You’ve been challenged!
