BEDGEAR, a performance bedding company, recently announced its continued partnership as the official mattress and pillow partner of the TCS New York City Marathon, taking place on Sunday, November 3, 2019. After the successful introduction of personalized fit performance pillows to the global running community in 2017, and the M3 – a modular mattress designed for individual support – in 2018, BEDGEAR is proud to return this year with a complete Performance Sleep System to support each runner’s sleep comfort. The increasing demand for BEDGEAR’s personalized products has been led by the backing of elite runners, who’ve seen the benefits of the brand’s functional bedding, which fits their unique body types and sleep positions. Together with New York Road Runners (NYRR), both brands can positively impact runners from around the world, helping them find their competitive edge through personalized recovery.
The BEDGEAR booth at the TCS New York City Marathon Expo Presented by New Balance will feature an all-new sensory experience, which aims to educate runners on the importance of air flow and personalization in building an optimal sleep environment. This year, the brand has expanded its onsite offering to include its best-selling BG-X Kids and Performance Pet Bed products for personalized, breathable sleep solutions for the whole family. Returning to the Expo will be BEDGEAR’s Sleep Coaches, a team of professionals dedicated to fitting each individual for a Performance pillow and mattress based on their sleep preferences. This custom-built space is carefully designed to support the NYRR’s dedication to expanding runners’ journey to the finish line and BEDGEAR rounds out its curated selection of the top training products for runners.
“We are excited for our continued partnership with BEDGEAR,” said Christine Burke, Senior Vice President, Strategic Partnerships and Runner Products. “We have the shared commitment to provide our runners with the best-in-class products to ensure an incredible experience on race day.”
Coinciding with this year’s TCS New York City Marathon is the launch of BEDGEAR’s Performance Weighted Blanket. The 15lb blanket features a removable and washable Hyper-Cotton cover and is filled with layers of breathable, moisture-wicking fabric instead of glass beads or plastic pellets found in other weighted products on the market, which can cause an uneven distribution of weight. The Performance Weighted Blanket provides a cuddling and soothing feel aimed to maximize relaxation and minimize body movement for deeper sleep. In celebration of this breakout product, BEDGEAR’s redesigned Expo booth will feature a weightless room as an interactive social media experience. All attendees will have the opportunity to test BEDGEAR’s Performance Weighted Blanket as a new addition to their sleep layers or as a holiday gift.
“From our previous two years with the TCS New York City Marathon, we’ve learned that runners are tired of compromising on their comfort and are looking for a personalized solution to help them run their personal best,” said BEDGEAR CEO and founder, Eugene Alletto. “’One size does not fit all’ is a message that truly resonates with this community of go-getters who personalize all aspects of their lives from their running shoes to their nutrition plans and now, even their sleep environment with BEDGEAR. We’re thankful for our partnership with the NYRR and TCS New York City Marathon and are looking forward to reconnecting with our core audience once again in support of this great sport.”
All attendees of the TCS New York City Marathon Expo Presented by New Balance are invited to stop by booth number 369 to get fit and experience BEDGEAR’s offering of personalized, Performance bedding, October 31st through November 2nd, 2019 at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City.
