180s, LLC announced its second year participating as a sponsor in the Baltimore Running Festival scheduled to take place on October 18, 2003 in downtown Baltimore. 180s will distribute 2000 complementary NALGENE water bottles filled with Deer Park water to race participants.

The third annual Baltimore Running Festival includes a marathon, a 4-person relay event, a 5K race, the Kids’ Fun Run and the new half-marathon. This year’s festival also features the first Armed Forces Challenge, which will recognize the male and female military winners of the marathon, half-marathon and team relay events.

“We’re thrilled to be a sponsor of the 2003 Baltimore Running Festival,” co-CEO and founder Brian Le Gette said. “Runners are one of the core consumers to whom our products are tailored. 180s products allow runners to ignore the outside elements, such as wind and temperature, and fully concentrate on performing at their peak.”

180s will host a booth in the Celebration Village, the area located near the finish line at Raven Stadium that will feature live music, interactive games and food. From its booth, 180s team members will be distributing 2000 NALGENE water bottles throughout the day to marathon participants.
