America’s Favorite Jerky Brand Helps Racers and Fans to Feed Their Wild Side
Whether you’re in the race or cheering from the sidelines, staying fueled and having fun are key elements of Grandma’s Marathon weekend. Jack Link’s Beef Jerky, proud sponsor of Grandma’s Marathon, will be on-site throughout the festivities, joining in the celebration and helping to keep hungry fans energized.
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.
Like Grandma’s Marathon, Jack Link’s has a history rooted in the Midwest’s Northwoods. Based in Minong, Wis., Jack Link’s corporate office is less than an hour from Duluth, Minn. The story of Jack Link’s Beef Jerky is one of family traditions. It began with treasured family recipes that were passed from generation to generation, ultimately transforming a small Northwoods business into one of the fastest-growing meat snack manufacturers in the world.
Jack Link’s Jerky is naturally high in protein; low in fat, calories and carbs; and free of trans fats. Quite possibly the perfect protein rich snack for active lifestyles, Jack Link’s will fill you up, not out. Jack Link’s Jerky is made with only premium cuts of 100 percent beef, turkey, or pork seasoned with a unique blend of spices and gently smoked for an unmistakable, authentic jerky taste. Available in a variety of flavors - Original, Teriyaki, Peppered, Sweet & Hot, KC Masterpiece® Barbecue, Jalapeño Carne Seca, A1® Steak Sauce, Original Hickory Smokehouse, Sweet & Spicy Thai, Cholula® Hot Sauce and Steakhouse Recipe Beef; Maple & Brown Sugar Ham; and more - - there is something to satisfy nearly every snacker.
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.
With the Jack Link’s Wild Side truck, a Jumbotron text-to-win opportunity, activities at the Health & Fitness Expo and, of course, samples of its great jerky, Jack Link’s is pleased to sponsor the 2012 Grandma’s Marathon while helping folks to Feed Their Wild Side throughout the weekend. Jack Link’s also cautions fans to keep their eyes peeled for possible Sasquatch sightings all weekend long.
