Divas Half Marathon® & 5K Series Announces Partnership with Ali Vincent


MIAMI, FL, APRIL 8, 2013 – The Divas Half Marathon® & 5K Series announced their partnership with Ali Vincent, best known as the first female winner of NBC’s hit show, The Biggest Loser! Ali will be the “Official Spokesperson” of the series, encouraging participants to live a healthy lifestyle and partaking in many of the events of the Divas Half Marathon® & 5K Series Weekend, including running in the half marathon. Ali will also be promoting her book, “Believe It, Be It: How Being the Biggest Loser Won Me Back My Life” as well as her show on the Live Well Network, Live Big with Ali Vincent, at five of the Divas Health & Fitness Boutiques.

Ali Vincent set foot on the Biggest Loser ranch weighing 234 pounds. After weeks of hard work and dedication, Ali stepped on the scale at the final weighing in at 122 pounds – 112 pounds less than her starting weight. This successful weight loss was enough to earn Ali the title of Season 5 winner and the first-ever female winner.

“I think this is the perfect combination. From her team color being pink, just like the traditional Divas color to her being in the forefront of health and fitness, as the Divas Half Marathon tries to be, I think the match is a great one,” said Continental Event & Sports Management President and CEO Robert Pozo. “Ali does not just talk the talk, she walks the walk as well, and in this case will run the run at each of the Divas events.  We welcome her spunkiness, her enthusiasm and her never say never attitude, as I know she will be the consummate spokesperson for the Divas Half Marathon & 5K Series.”

Aside from sharing her inspirational story and offering advice to Divas looking to rediscover their potential, Ali will also be running alongside them in North Myrtle Beach, DC’s Wine Country, Long Island, Puerto Rico and SoCal and may possibly film segments for her show on location at some of our events.

“In my quest to do 13 half marathon (13.1 miles) races in 2013, I couldn’t be more excited to partner with the Divas Half Marathon & 5K Series and run with so many of my fellow Divas out there,” said Ali Vincent. “I’m looking forward to celebrating, sharing and keeping the conversation of wellness going, one step at a time. The time is now, so sign up now to run with me.”
