In addition to the support of our main sponsors for 2013, 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.
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.
Justin Liddle (DMD) and his family moved to Fort Collins a few years ago from New Orleans in search of mountains, trails and a dental market. And they found them all. As an accredited prosthodontist, Justin will put your smile back together next time you take a major mouth-first digger into a solid piece of granite. Or, if you want some bridge work done, he can do that too.
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.
Product support for the Quad Rock races come from a range of great companies.
First Endurance will be providing race fuel with EFS Liquid Shot gel flasks for every runner (refillable at all aid stations on course) and post-race recovery with Ultragen.
Overall and age group prizes will come in the form of packs, sunglasses, altimeter watches and running gift vouchers from four great companies: Ultraspire, Smith Optics, Highgear & 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.”
Please support our sponsors – they are all local to Fort Collins or the Mountain West. We couldn’t do this without their kind support.
