With more than 40 events taking place from New York City to Los Angeles in 2020, The Color Run and Eggland's Best will remind runners and spectators that fitness and nutrition go hand-in-hand.

Once the race is over, the fun continues at the Finish Festival, a larger-than-life party equipped with music, dancing, photo ops, and activity booths, and more.

"Eggland's Best eggs are the perfect pre- and post-run snack," said Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist Dawn Jackson Blatner. "EB eggs have six times more vitamin D and more than double the omega-3s than ordinary eggs. This is especially important for Color Runners as Vitamin D helps the body absorb calcium to keep bones healthy and the protein and omega-3s also help reduce soreness and aid in recovery after a run."
Compared to ordinary eggs, Eggland's Best eggs contain six times more vitamin D, 25% less saturated fat, more than double the Omega-3s, ten times more vitamin E, and more than double the vitamin B12. The superior nutrition of Eggland's Best is due to its proprietary all-vegetarian hen feed that contains healthy grains, canola oil and a wholesome supplement of rice bran, alfalfa, sea kelp and Vitamin E. In addition, independent testing has revealed that Eggland's Best eggs have stronger shells than ordinary eggs, which leads to less breakage and helps them stay fresher longer. Eggland's Best's patented method of production and verification ensures that every Eggland's Best egg has these superior qualities.
Eggland's Best eggs have been the recipient of more than 100 awards and honors for the product's superior taste, nutrition, freshness and variety. For more information on Eggland's Best eggs and delicious recipes, visit www.egglandsbest.com.
