The Beef Checkoff, through the Northeast Beef Promotion Initiative, will sponsor Dane Rauschenberg at the Delaware Marathon. Dane is an extreme athlete who made his mark as a man who ran 52 marathons in 52 consecutive weekends. Since then he has run a 202-mile relay solo and completed a 350-mile run up the coast of Oregon. He doesn’t just know running, he has explored it to the deepest reaches of its mental, physical and emotional boundaries. Dane will be onsite to discuss how he uses beef power through his workouts and the benefits he finds in beef as an extreme athlete. Follow his blog at SeeDaneRun. Join us at the beef booth for 90% lean beef sticks, a chance to win an “I Heart Beef” cowbell and make a cheer card to encourage Dane on race day!
