Short 3-Minute About How Run Gum Started.
Run Gum Timeline
How We Started
Nick Symmonds (The Athlete) and Sam Lapray (The Coach) met when Nick joined the track and field team at Willamette University in Salem, Oregon.
Together, they went on to win 7 NCAA Titles, 9 U.S. Titles, & made 2 Olympic Teams.
How We Created Run Gum
Always looking to maximize their performance on the track, Nick and Sam tried every product on the market.
They loved the performance benefits of caffeine, just hated the way it had to be consumed.
During an off-year in 2014, the duo worked with expert formulators, nutritionists, and athletes to create a caffeine-infused chewing gum.
