The local Braddock-based greens company partners with P3R for a second year to further promote the health and wellness of runners
PITTSBURGH, PA (August 19, 2021) – P3R has renewed its partnership with Fifth Season, the Official Salad of the 2022 DICK’S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon. Following a positive response from Pittsburgh Marathon runners in 2021, the two organizations look forward to expanding the partnership as the Marathon Weekend of Events returns to a live start line April 29 – May 1, 2022.
With the renewal, the partnership welcomes new features to enhance and fuel the runner experience, including Fifth Season salad van on-site as well as salad promotions and sales at the 2022 DICK’S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon Expo.
“Fifth Season’s partnership with P3R is something that feels so natural with the alignment of our mission statements,” said Fifth Season’s CEO and co-founder, Austin Webb. “We had a great first year featuring salads as a part of the 2021 Virtual DICK’S Sporting Goods Marathon, and we can’t wait to nourish and support even more runners in 2022.”
“We are excited to welcome not only runners back to the start line, but also Fifth Season,” said P3R CEO, Troy Schooley. “Our runners deserve healthy, good-for-the-planet produce, so we are fortunate to partner with such an innovative, forward-thinking company based right here in Pittsburgh.”
Fifth Season is positively disrupting the food industry with its advanced technology used to keep greens fresh all year round. All Fifth Season produce is grown locally without pesticides and is delivered within hours of packaging. Their greens stay fresh more than three times longer than field-grown products.
Fifth Season salads come in a variety of pre-packaged sizes and are available throughout Pittsburgh at select Giant Eagle locations and can also be delivered directly to customers’ doors. Local community members and businesses can order Fifth Season salads and greens at www.fifthseasonfresh.com.
