Zipp, with its versatile 303, Official Wheel Sponsor of Land Run 100
We are proud to be the official wheel sponsor for the 2019 Land Run 100, a fast growing and grueling adventure race on Oklahoma’s most demanding rural roads. Zipp legendary 303 wheelset is all about speed and versatility, in any condition, on any road. Even red dirt roads. For that reason, the Zipp 303 is the official wheel of the 2019 Land Run 100, held March 16 in Oklahoma. For Zipp, support of this pioneering off-pavement cycling event is natural progression of our more than three decades long commitment to make you faster on your bike. Zipp, with the 303, developed its pioneering carbon wheels for cyclocross and the cobblestone Spring Classics, and gravel is the next frontier.
The allure of the Land Run 100 is unmistakable: These roads surrounding Stillwater, Okla., have a depth of history, and a soul. They are unique, unforgiving, ever-changing, but always red. The Land Run 100 was created in 2013 for the love of sharing these amazing roads. Coming in March, the Land Run 100 is the first major gravel cycling event of the season in the United States. Zipp will be out in force at the expo. We will be highlighting our 303 wheel, with its wide rim profile and 45mm depth making it perfect for high performance on mixed surfaces. The unpredictable conditions and red rutted roads of the Land Run 100 provide a perfect proving ground for our products, and we are happy to support this amazing event.
“We are elated to have Zipp as the official wheel sponsor of Land Run 100 in 2019,” said Bobby Wintle, director of the Land Run 100. “Zipp's dedication to killer products and their support of amazing athletes is inspiring to all of us here in Stillwater, OK. Zipp is bringing the speed, Land Run is bringing the dirt. See you in March.”
