Team Beef Activities
Nearly 40,000 runners and their families attending the 2017 Philadelphia Broad Street Run Health & Fitness Expo were encouraged to fuel up with beef. Additionally, Pennsylvania’s May is BEEF Month celebrations kicked off on Saturday, May 6, with a Team Beef member “Meat & Greet” pre-race reception. A total of 10 runners represented Team Beef during the nation’s largest 10-mile road race and the largest race in Pennsylvania. Meanwhile, beef was front and center during the 121st Boston Marathon on April 17. Thirty-one members of Team Beef started in Hopkinton and ran along the rolling streets into downtown Boston on Marathon Monday to celebrate Patriots' Day with more than 30,000 other runners from nearly 100 countries. The checkoff also participated in the pre-race John Hancock Sports and Fitness Expo attended by 100,000 runners and their families.
