SAN DIEGO, CA – ElliptiGO elliptical bicycles will take to the Stanford University track for a special exhibition race as part of the Tracktown Summer Series, which will be held this Thursday, June 29. The event will feature elite track athletes racing the world’s leading elliptical bicycles in what is widely considered the most recognizable and prestigious competition distance in track – the mile.

The presence of the ElliptiGO Mile at the Tracktown Summer Series is a natural one, according to Bryce Whiting, ElliptiGO Chief Enthusiast. “ElliptiGO is the top cross-training tool for countless elite, collegiate and high school runners, providing them with quality workouts without the pounding of running,” Whiting said. “We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate our connection with the running community than to showcase our elliptical bikes at the high level Tracktown Summer Series meet.”
