SAN DIEGO, CALIF. (October 31, 2014)— ElliptiGO Inc., creators of the world’s first elliptical cycle, today announced their partnership with Atlanta Track Club (ATC), the second largest running organization in the U.S. Eight new ATC-branded ElliptiGOs are now available for their members to check out, take home, and use as needed. In addition, the ATC will be using the ElliptiGOs to pace various events throughout the year and will have them present at post-race expos and award ceremonies. So far, ElliptiGOs were used as pace vehicles at the AJC Peachtree Road Race in July, the largest 10K in the U.S. and US 10K Championship race, as well as being on hand for pre- and post-race events surrounding the Atlanta 10-Miler last weekend.

“We’re excited that this partnership has become a reality,” stated Rich Kenah, Executive Director at Atlanta Track Club. “A fun and effective cross-training tool like the ElliptiGO will be of great value to our runners, so we’re very pleased to offer this as a benefit to our members. Our hope is that by giving them easy access to a low-impact, running-like workout, our runners will integrate more cross-training into their training programs. More cross-training can help our members stay injury-free, improve their performance, and maximize their potential.”

With this partnership, the Atlanta Track Club joins a growing list of clubs and teams that use the ElliptiGO with their athletes, including the Oregon Track Club Elite, the Brooks Beasts, Stanford University, and UC Berkeley.

We look forward to extending the running life of ATC members so that they can achieve their performance goals and remain an active part of that great community for years to come.”
