Clean Bottle Debuts ‘The Runner’: The First Bottle Carrier Designed to Fit a Smartphone

What’s the one thing you will not leave home without?  Yep, you guessed it.  Like us, we don’t like being detached from our iphones either.  And as for the running trails, we’ve noticed that several runners carry their phone, water and nutrition–tucked “wherever” it fits, or perhaps they stash their bottle in the bushes, hoping no one will snatch it?

Enter The Runner from Clean Bottle.  Launched today.

Clean Bottle combines its easy-to-clean, screw-off bottom water bottle with patent-pending smartphone holder

(San Diego, CA) February 22, 2012 – Clean Bottle, the company that revolutionized the water bottle with a screw-off bottom for easy cleaning, announces The Runner. The Runner is the first and only hand held bottle carrier designed specifically to carry your iPod or smartphone. The Runner also offers ample storage of keys, energy gels and credit cards in a patent-pending,
compact design.

“Runners and walkers carry keys, cash, food and their phones with them, but they use a different holder for each item and it can get cumbersome,” said David Mayer, Clean Bottle Founder. “The Runner allows you to easily take your water and phone with you – on the trail, road or treadmill – without the need for multiple carrying cases. Be it for running, walking, hiking or simply commuting, The Runner is for anyone on the go.”

The Runner features a clear front pouch that makes it quick and easy to access the display of your phone or iPod. The all-in-one holder also allows you to carry up to 22 ounces of fluid, a smartphone or ipod, identification, up to 3 gels and your car or house key. Affordably priced at $19.95, The Runner includes a Clean Bottle and is available exclusively online at

About Clean Bottle

After constantly struggling to clean out the gunk and mold from the bottom of his water bottle, David Mayer, an Ironman triathlete and Stanford graduate from Silicon Valley, had the idea for Clean Bottle. In 2010, Mayer designed a water bottle with a screw-off bottom for easy cleaning and debuted “Bottle Boy”, donning a giant water bottle costume to chase riders in the Tour de France. Throughout those two weeks of chasing the best cyclists in the world to compete for TV air-time and fan attention, Clean Bottle sold over $70,000 in bottles. Today, Clean Bottle can now be found in over 4,000 retail stores and major distributors throughout the US and Europe including REI, Performance Bicycle, Dicks, 24 Hour Fitness, Sports Chalet, GNC and local bike shops nationwide.

On January 20th Clean Bottle was featured on ABC’s Shark Tank, where Mayer was offered a $60,000 investment from billionaire Mark Cuban to help expand the Clean Bottle line.
