Tailwind Nutrition is Official Sports Drink of The North Face Endurance Challenge


Durango, CO – Tailwind Nutrition, the sports drink mix that endurance athletes depend on for success, is excited to announce their partnership with The North Face Endurance Challenge as the Official Nutrition Drink on all race courses.


Tailwind Nutrition’s drink mix offers athletes all the calories and electrolytes they need to train or race all day. The all-natural and dairy, soy and gluten free powder mixes easily with water, has a mild flavor and leaves no residue or gunk in bottles or hydration packs.

“Athletes competing in The North Face Endurance Challenge want to focus on the finish line and not deal with nutritional issues such as gut bombs or dehydration,” states Jenny Vierling, Co-founder of Tailwind Nutrition. “Tailwind is an ideal choice for them to use in their training and on race day to help them attain their goals.”

Participants in The North Face Endurance Challenge will be able to refill with Tailwind Nutrition at aid stations throughout the course and test out different flavors at the start and finish lines. All participants are encouraged to take the Tailwind Challenge when preparing for their race. It’s a simple challenge that only requires the participant to order four large bags bundled at 10% off and then train and race with it. If the product doesn't blow you away, Tailwind will refund your race entry fee. Additional details on the Tailwind Challenge can be found at http://www.tailwindnutrition.com/tailwind-challenge/.

The North Face Endurance Challenge is a premier trail-running series throughout the United States and Canada. Runners can find their favorite distance from 5K, 10K, half and full marathon, 50K to the Gore-tex 50-miler at each trail running festival in New York, Washington, D.C., Ontario, Utah, Wisconsin and California.
