Grandma’s Marathon is pleased to welcome Jack Link’s Beef Jerky as a proud sponsor of the 2011 marathon.  Whether you’re in the race or cheering from the sidelines, Jack Link’s, the number one brand of jerky, will be on-site throughout the weekend festivities, joining in the celebration and helping to keep hungry racers and fans energized.

In celebration of the partnership, Grandma’s Marathon and Jack Link’s want to give you a chance to win an entry to either the 2011 or 2012 Garry Bjorklund Half-Marathon, along with a Jack Link’s Jerky gift pack.  Two winners will be selected at random!  It’s easy – just text PROTEIN2GO to 66937.

As runners know, eating a protein-rich diet is essential for building and maintaining the lean muscle mass needed for long-distance running. Snacking on Jack Link’s Jerky before and after a long race will keep runners feeling energized, mile after mile. Naturally high in protein, low in fat, calories and carbs, and free of trans fats, Jack Link’s Jerky is a snack that will fill you up, not out.

Located in the North Woods of Minong, Wis., Jack Link’s corporate office is less than an hour from Duluth, Minn. – home of Grandma’s Marathon.  Its down-home roots and great-tasting products aside, Jack Link’s is widely known for its popular Messin’ With Sasquatch advertising campaign, featuring Jack Link’s fans playing sophomoric pranks on an unsuspecting Sasquatch.

Look for Jack Link’s Jerky at the Essentia Health Fitness & Health Expo, watch for their Wild Side truck throughout the race weekend, grab some free snack samples and keep your eyes peeled for Sasquatch (you may have a sighting of your own!).
