Obstacle race specialist Spartan Race and The RefreshinQ Co, a new all-natural vitamin and supplement company, have announced an integrated partnership for the 2017 US Spartan Race season.
As ‘Official Sponsor and Partner’, the RefreshinQ team will set up shop at 15 US Spartan Races in 2017 to showcase its ‘clean, pharmacist-curated supplement packs, transdermal supplement patches and individualized coaching services, and to inspire attendees to participate in the Never Quit Movement’.
“We firmly believe that Spartan’s values mirror those of The RefreshinQ Co, and we are excited to be part of the Spartan community,” said Amanda Ratliff, Director Brand Strategy & Marketing at RefreshinQ. “These athletes benefit from our products, they appreciate the clean, pharmacist-curated formulas and the way they support and continually allow them to push their training goals, every day.”
Each Spartan Race – ranging from the 3+ mile, 20+ obstacle Sprint to the 12+ mile, 30+ obstacle Beast – challenges participants to test their grit and work together as they complete each course. RefreshinQ adds that it is ‘proud to support the growing Spartan communities that continually challenge themselves to never quit and hit new goals with every race’.
The RefreshinQ Co.’s Packs and Patches – including Energy Support, Workout + RecoverinQ, Weight Support, Vitamin D and Daily Multi Support – are designed specifically to help individuals reach their health, fitness and competitive goals ‘in ways that allow them to never quit their busy lifestyle’.
“The RefreshinQ Co challenges its community of users to never quit – whether it’s running a faster mile, hitting a target weight, or any other health goal in their lives,” continued Amanda Ratliff. “We know that Spartan racers share that drive to achieve what others might think is unachievable, and we are thrilled to get out there and support race participants as they work together and prove themselves in each Spartan Race.”
At each of the 15 Spartan Races, the RefreshinQ team will be handing out free samples of both the supplement patches and packs. The RefreshinQ Co. attended the Spartan race in Lake Elsinore, California, and in Littleton, Arizona (18 March); Vernon, New Jersey (29 April); Queens, New York (13 May); Fort Carson, Colorado (13 May); Arlington, Texas (10 June); Green Bay, Wisconsin (24 June); Palmerton, Pennsylvania (8 July); Asheville, North Carolina (29 July); Los Angeles, California (19 August); Glen Jean, West Virginia (26 August); Breckenridge, Colorado (26 August); Big Bear Lake, California (28 October); Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (14 October); and Dallas, Texas (28 October).
