Tailwind Nutrition is proud to announce its 2020 partnership with Ragnar Relay, the largest running relay series in the world. Together they hope to encourage participants to push their limits as part of Ragnar’s active, fun-loving community.

Founded in Durango, CO by endurance athletes, Tailwind Nutrition’s all-natural product line-up includes Endurance Fuel and Rebuild Recovery, the first sports recovery drink based on a patent-pending perfectly complete protein. Tailwind Nutrition’s Endurance Fuel is a simple-to-use source for all the calories, electrolytes and hydration runners need to compete at their highest level, making it the ideal drink for Ragnar Relay race participants.

“Ragnar Relay produces some of the most popular yet challenging races in the world,” says Laura Hazlett, Director of Sales and Marketing for Tailwind Nutrition. “They’re great events for all kinds of runners to push themselves in a fun, supportive environment. These relays have people running long distances, sometimes over really tough terrain. Proper fueling and hydration are crucial in races like a Ragnar, so we saw an opportunity where we could help encourage runners to take on new challenges in 2020.”

Ragnar Relay began with a single relay race in 2004 and has grown into the largest overnight relay series in the world. With four separate race formats (Road, Trail, Sprint and Sunset), Ragnar events attract runners of all ability levels through their unique blend of athletic challenge, energetic atmosphere, and camaraderie among teams.

“As a brand focused on innovation, we are proud to partner with Tailwind Nutrition, who is changing the way runners refuel and recover during endurance events,” says Ragnar CEO, Tanner Bell. “We cannot wait for Ragnarians across the country to try their products on our courses.”
