We would like to welcome back SaltStick as a returning sponsor of the GORE-TEX™ TransRockies Run as The Official Electrolyte Capsule and Dispenser of the GORE-TEX® TransRockies Run for 2012 and 2013. As an event partner every year since the inaugural 2007 event, SaltStick Caps continue to provide athletes with a convenient and effective electrolyte replacement in capsule form. Endurance athletes often find out the hard way that proper hydration is only one part of the refueling needs during training and racing. Normal loss of electrolytes (sodium, potassium, magnesium and calcium) through sweat can wreak havoc on the fittest athlete if ignored.
As a complement to water or sports drinks, SaltStick Caps are full-spectrum electrolyte capsules that have been engineered to replace sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, and chloride lost in sweat, in a form and quantity that your body can use. These unique capsules help minimize muscle cramping and heat stress during training and endurance events. Vitamin D has been added to aid in calcium absorption by the body.
The capsules are vegetarian and contain a balanced and buffered mixture of electrolytes with no banned substances and nothing unnecessary added. SaltStick Caps can be carried separately or can fit inside the SaltStick dispenser for a great product synergy. SaltStick Caps were engineered by a Ph.D. chemist who is also a pro athlete; the formulation provides unparalleled support for challenging conditions. More information is available from www.SaltStick.com along with a usage guide.
At the GORE-TEX® TransRockies Run, Teams will receive a bottle of SaltStick Caps at race registration and SaltStick Caps will be at all aid stations on course throughout the event.
