As a founding investor Meb will play an integral role in introducing the global running community to Silicon Valley, the world's hub for innovation, also ranked regularly as one of the healthiest regions in the country. In addition to being an ambassador and advisor, he will make race week appearances and provide motivation for all the participants in their lead up to the fast and flat Silicon Valley race.
"Throughout my running career the sport and the fans provided me with decades of joy and support. Partnering with the Silicon Valley Half is a great opportunity to invest back into the running community with a group who share my values and standards," Meb commented on his motivation for partnering with Silicon Valley's signature running event.
"We're thrilled to welcome Meb to our Silicon Valley Half organizing team. Meb brings experience, knowledge and international recognition as one of running's biggest stars. Together we're building Silicon Valley's signature sporting event that reflects the region's global stature," stated Represent Running Founder, J.T. Service.
