INDIANAPOLIS – Beyond Monumental, the 501(c)3 non-profit responsible for the CNO Financial Indianapolis Monumental Marathon, has announced that Nuun, the leading hydration solution, is now the official hydration sponsor of the organization’s races. Nuun is set to be the exclusive provider for on-course hydration through 2023. The partnership saw early activations recently, with Nuun products being provided at the Indianapolis Monumental Mile.
Beyond Monumental’s three races, Indianapolis Monumental Mile, Indy Half Marathon at Fort Ben and 5K, and CNO Financial Indianapolis Monumental Marathon, totaled nearly 20,000 participants in 2019, with a record-breaking attendance at the 2019 CNO Financial Indianapolis Monumental Marathon. After switching to virtual experiences in 2020, the races are set to be held in-person once again. The Indianapolis Monumental Mile returned to Monument Circle on Thursday, June 3.
