Run Gum—the Oregon-based energy gum company founded by 2x Olympian Nick Symmonds, along with his coach Sam Lapray—today announced that CVS Pharmacy will now carry the caffeine-infused chewing gum nationwide in over 3,900 locations. With fast growth in specialty and grocery chains, consumers can now purchase Run Gum in more than 7,000 retailers across the United States.
“Run Gum is ecstatic to be partnering with CVS in 2019. With over 9,600 CVS locations, Run Gum can now be found within a short walk or drive of nearly every hard working American in need of a quick boost of energy,” says Symmonds. “It's not just the distribution we appreciate from CVS, but also their attention to market trends and willingness to bring exciting, new, and innovating products into their stores. We predict big things ahead for Run Gum and CVS in 2019 and beyond!”
Symmonds and Lapray founded Run Gum in 2014 to provide a safe and legal energy boost for athletes. Extremely portable with quick absorption, Run Gum is available nationwide and has become a popular alternative to sugary caffeinated products for everyone from athletes and busy parents to weary travelers and weekend warriors.
“Whether you are running a marathon, running to a meeting, or running your kids to practice, we believe Run Gum is the perfect energy boost for anyone with a busy schedule,” said Symmonds.
