Durango, Colo. (March 24, 2022) – Tailwind Nutrition, the complete nutrition provider to athletes, will be the exclusive hydration and supporting protein recovery partner of the Ragnar Trail Series throughout the 2022 calendar year. Ragnar is a long distance, overnight relay running event that seeks to create memorable relationships for friends and the running community to push their limits, on little amounts of sleep, in unique locations throughout the world. The 2022 Ragnar calendar features 27 relay events nationwide.
As part of the sponsorship, Tailwind will provide Endurance Fuel and Recovery samples in each participant’s race bags for all road and sprint events. Recovery samples will also be available in the Ragnar Recovery Zones at each event, and the Tailwind Nutrition team will be attending select Ragnar Trail events throughout the year.
While each of the Ragnar events are unique in their distances, the Trail Series consists of teams of 8 that run roughly a combined total of 120 miles, in three repeating loops.
“We are proud to support the relay running series that Ragnar has become so revered for. Their events are one of the ultimate tests of physical and mental endurance,” said Jeff Vierling, Co-Founder and CEO at Tailwind. “Tailwind Endurance Fuel products will support runners by helping them maintain consistent energy levels while balancing electrolytes, hydration and avoiding gut issues. In their “down time” our recovery products help athletes rebuild and get back out there sooner and perform at their best.”
Tailwind offers two flagship products— Endurance Fuel and Recovery— that are made in Durango, Colo. Endurance Fuel contains calories, which help runners maintain consistent energy levels in addition to balancing electrolytes and hydration. Plus it’s designed to taste good and be easy on the stomach. Tailwind Recovery offers a mix of carbs, complete protein, and electrolytes to help athletes have a smooth recovery after their exerted effort.
“We are thrilled to be partnered with Tailwind Nutrition as our exclusive Hydration partner, said Tanner Bell, Ragnar co-founder and CEO. “Tailwind has been an industry leader in hydration and recovery for years and will provide the energy our participants need to complete our events. We are truly excited to combine our premier running adventures with Tailwind’s Endurance Fuel and Recovery to provide the best possible Ragnar experience.”
The first Ragnar Trail event that the Tailwind team will be attending is the Atlanta event on April 22-23, followed by the Richmond Trail event April 29-30. Keep an eye out on Tailwind’s social media channels (@tailwindnutrition) to find them at other Ragnar Trail events throughout the year.
