Durango, CO – October 18, 2016 – The 9th annual Tarawera Ultramarathon and the Kathmandu Coast to Coast World Multi-Sport Championships, two of New Zealand’s most celebrated endurance events, will be powered by Tailwind Nutrition in 2017.

“Tailwind Nutrition is honored to be the official hydration at these iconic events,” Jenny Vierling, Co-founder of Tailwind Nutrition says. “Both of these races are extremely tough and capture the essence of the endurance community: testing your personal limits to just cross the finish line in an incredibly beautiful place, encouraging and supporting other participants along the course, and afterwards sharing your stories of pain and glory. Tailwind is excited to support such extraordinary experiences.”

Comprised of 62, 87 and 102KM courses, the Tarawera Ultramarathon is a part of the 12-race Ultra-Trail World Tour and typically has about 1,200 participants, including over 600 international ultra-runners. The course takes runners through forests, around lakes and waterfalls and through the incredible landscape of the Bay of Plenty.
One of New Zealand’s longest running competitions, the Kathmandu Coast to Coast World Multi-Sport Championships, is a multi-sport event that started back in 1983.
