In addition to the support of our main sponsors for 2014, Pearl Izumi and Cornerstone Mortgage, we feel incredibly fortunate to have the support of some amazing local businesses and gear companies.
Local trail and ultrarunners Cat Speights, Justin Liddle, and Terry Gebhardt have once again stepped up to show their support for the Fort Collins running community with sponsorship of the Quad Rock 25 & 50 mile races through their fantastic businesses.
Terry Gebhardt is the owner of Colorado Physical Therapy Specialists, a primary care provider for all your orthopedic needs. COLPTS specializes in sports injuries, neck and back pain, chronic pain, and women’s health. Ask any runner in town who puts them back together, and chances are Terry’s team will be first on the referral list.
Justin Liddle (DMD) is not only a talented trail runner and keen supporter of the local trail running scene, but he’s also an accredited prosthodontist. Justin’s dental practice can take care of pretty much any of your dental needs, but he specializes in implants and other complex reconstructive procedures. Take a nasty face-first fall and Justin will put your smile back together. Check out the ‘smile gallery‘.
Dr Catherine Speights is not only a highly accomplished distance runner, but the go-to small animal vet in the running community (and beyond). Her practice, Countryside Animal Hospital, specializes in personalized care of dogs and cats in a home-like setting. Funds from the Countryside sponsorship help support race beneficiary Animal House, which in turn provides volunteer support for the post-race BBQ. It’s a win-win, folks.
Product support for the Quad Rock races come from a range of great companies.
Headquartered in Estes Park, CO, VFuel will be providing on-course support with aid-station gels in a range of flavors. As the first true endurance gel, VFuel was made for tough mountain courses exactly like Quad Rock.
Additional on course fueling needs will be provided by Windsor-based Succeed. They will be providing S!CAPS, the gold standard in electrolyte replacement for endurance athletes.
Overall and age group prizes will come in the form of shoes, packs, sunglasses, running watches and running gift vouchers from five great companies: Pearl Izumi, Ultraspire, Smith Optics, New Balance Watches & Runners Roost Fort Collins.
And it wouldn’t be a celebration of trail and ultrarunning in Fort Collins without a craft brewer helping out with the post-race festivities, so we’re super stoked that Pateros Creek will be back at the BBQ offering up their special batch of “51st Mile English Mild.” We’ll also be offering baked goods from Great Harvest and refreshing rehydration from IZZE Sparkling Juice.
Please support our sponsors – they are all local to Fort Collins or the Mountain West. We couldn’t do this without their kind support.
