DURANGO, Colo. [May 20, 2024]  — Tailwind Nutrition, the leading provider of simple and complete sports nutrition products for athletes, is re-introducing its popular Endurance Fuel flavor, ‘Dauwaltermelon’, inspired by Tailwind Nutrition athlete and 2023’s Triple Crown-winning Ultrarunner, Courtney Dauwalter. First introduced in spring 2023 as a limited edition, this refreshing flavor is a light and playful ode to the simplicity of those adventurous summer days of childhood. It provides a light, fruity watermelon taste with a hint of lime, that gives you everything you need so you can be in the moment, let your mind wander freely, forget about the miles and it has been known to induce those iconic Dauwalter smiles.

With the Dauwaltermelon flavor earning its badge of honor in the Tailwind lineup as a permanent fixture, it becomes the brand’s ninth full-time Endurance Fuel offering to satisfy your palate while you are out adventuring—wherever your playground may be.

The watermelon with lime sports nutrition drink mix offers complete nutrition with the perfect combination of calories, electrolytes and hydration for athletes with no need for gels, chews, bars, or salt pills. Tailwind’s Endurance Fuel products mix crystal clear with water and are designed to be used during training and racing, without upsetting the stomach. Dauwaltermelon with Lime is available in 50 and 30 serving bags (MSRP: $39.99/$28.99) as well as single serve stick packs. (MSRP: $2.49).

“It has been an absolute blast working with Courtney all of these years and we are humbled to know that she trusts Tailwind products to go great distances—which is an understatement. She fueled exclusively on the Dauwaltermelon flavor for her entire Triple Crown last year. It was a fun process to develop this flavor with Courtney and our team, getting it just right to invoke that playful feeling on your taste buds without causing flavor fatigue,” said Maggie Guterl, Athletes & Events Manager at Tailwind Nutrition.

“Tailwind fans were really sad to see the limited edition flavor go. Our customer service department received a lot of emails begging for the secret stash (we promise we weren’t holding out on you!) We heard you and thought it was an easy decision to graduate Dauwaltermelon into our permanent lineup.  Now you can indulge in as much Dauwaltermelon your heart and legs desire when it comes to your fueling needs!”

“Dauwaltermelon is back and I am so thrilled! The flavor is the perfect amount of lightness and freshness that adds joy to every adventure,” exclaimed Dauwalter. “In fact, it was the only flavor I used recently at Mt Fuji 100 and multiple times after sipping on it I found myself exclaiming to the empty trails around me how delicious it was.”

Dauwalter has been with Tailwind for seven years. Tailwind is proud to continue providing the fuel, recovery and additional support to keep helping her crush all-of-the-miles in 2024 and beyond. This summer, expect to find the daring Dauwalter taking on the Hardrock 100 Endurance Run, where she currently holds the course record in both the clockwise and counterclockwise directions.

Dauwaltermelon and Tailwind-themed shirts (MSRP: $29.99 USD) will be available at
