LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Herbalife (NYSE: HLF), a global nutrition company, continues in its 12th year as the official nutrition partner and title sponsor of the Herbalife International Distance race, which kicks off the 30th Annual Nautica Malibu Triathlon presented by Equinox on Sept. 17.
"We've been involved with the Malibu Tri for more than a decade, as a corporate sponsor, as volunteers keeping the athletes hydrated with our Herbalife24 products, and as competitors, demonstrating our commitment to a healthy, active lifestyle with every single step," said Michael O. Johnson, chairman and CEO, Herbalife. "It's our mission and our passion, and we live it every day."
Herbalife Nutrition will provide participants with CR7 Drive, which rapidly fuels an athlete's workout while enhancing hydration and Herbalife24® Rebuild Strength to support with immediate and sustained muscle recovery.* In addition, 30 hydration stations sponsored by Herbalife Nutrition will be located throughout the course.
The Nautica Malibu Triathlon attracts 5,000 athletes and has raised $10 million for the Children's Hospital Los Angeles' Pediatric Cancer Research Program. It is one of the nation's most recognizable races because of the course's breathtaking ocean views. The weekend event consists of two separate races: the Herbalife International Distance race on Saturday and a shorter Classic Distance race on Sunday. Thousands of fans are expected to cheer athletes vying for top podium finishes.
The course for the Herbalife International Distance race consists of a 1.5-kilometer Pacific Ocean swim, a 40-kilometer bike course along the Pacific Coast Highway and a 10-kilometer run along the sands of Zuma Beach.
