Northeast Team Beef

When it comes to choosing high-quality proteins, beef is a nutritious choice with unbeatable taste. Naturally nutrient-rich beef gives you more essential nutrients (10 to be exact!) in around 170 calories per serving. That’s a lot of nutrients in such a small package. Team Beef members know first-hand how beef helps their bodies build and maintain muscle mass, recover after long training runs, and fuel them to the finish line.

Who are the members of northeast team beef?

Northeast Team Beef members represent the entire New England and Mid-Atlantic regions. They live, work and run within the Northeast region. View our member library. 

how does it work?

All members are required to participate in a team webinar/conference call once per running season. This will give us time to get you some background on the beef industry and great beef nutrition tips that you can use and share with your fellow runners.

If you do not already have a Team Beef jersey, you will be supplied with one that you will need to wear in the race you are submitting for reimbursement. Upon completion of your race wearing your Team Beef jersey (during the ENTIRE race), email a picture of yourself in your shirt at the race to and fill out the reimbursement form.

You will be reimbursed for your entry fee into the race (based on the tiered reimbursement structure) via a check that will be mailed to you. You must sign up for each race that you plan on participating in on your own.  All reimbursement requests for the 2019-2020 team season must be in by September 30, 2020. NOTE: We will issue two checks to each member during the fiscal year (March and September) rather than a separate check following each race.
