Attention Eugene Marathon Runners

Watch out for gorillas at Mile 8!

Wild gorillas (i.e. a few Gorilla Capital employees and students from the South Eugene Track Team dressed in gorilla suits) will be handing out bananas at the water station at mile 8 during the Eugene Marathon on Sunday, July 27, 2014. This is the perfect time to refuel and replenish with nature’s best energy food. Bananas make a great mid-marathon snack with their high levels of potassium helping to prevent cramping and carbohydrates providing a much needed energy boost to keep you going.

Gorilla Capital is proud to have been a sponsor of the Eugene Marathon since their inaugural run in 2007. Eugene Marathon is practically a corporate holiday around here. Employees, spouses, friends, and family all join in between running the 5K on Saturday, braving the over 13 miles for the half (no one has attempted the full… yet), setting up mile markers starting at 4:30am on Sunday, and manning the banana stop during the race. We are big on encouraging a healthy lifestyle for our employees and their families and love supporting local community events so the Eugene Marathon is a no brainer!

We hope to see you there!
