VFuel to Provide Gel for the 2014 Quad Rock Trail Races

We are happy to announce that VFuel Endurance will supply gel for the 2014 Quad Rock Trail Races.

VFuel Endurance GelAid stations will be stocked with all of the current VFuel flavors: Peach Cobbler, Vanilla, Fudge Brownie, Cool Citrus, and Maple Bacon.

Gel pack samples will be included in the race packets but to cut down on waste and to ensure that we have enough gel for all runners, aid stations will only have bulk containers of gel. Runners will need to bring their own gel flasks to refill or ‘shoot’ gels at the aid stations.

VFuel was founded by local ultra runners from Estes Park, CO. The VFuel formula was developed and tested right in our back yard on the trails of Rocky Mountain National Park. As the first true endurance gel, VFuel is made for tough mountain courses exactly like Quad Rock.

Superior recovery, ease of digestibility, and delicious flavors intended to be consumed for hours and hours, are just a few of the benefits of VFuel Endurance Gel.

We encourage Quad Rock participants to try and train with VFuel before race day. Order online from VFuel.com and enter coupon code QuadRock14 for a 20% discount.


First Endurance EFS Liquid Shot: Official Fueling Partner

First Endurance will be the official fueling partner of the Quad Rock 50.

As part of our mission to offer a quality racing experience with as minimal an impact on the resources hosting us as possible, we are working to partner with companies that can help reduce packaging, waste and littering.

Not only is EFS Liquid Shot a fueling product that co-race director Nick Clark uses, believes in and endorses, but the handheld flask that it comes in helps reduce packaging waste, encourages recycling and reuse, and eliminates on-course gel pack littering.

Each runner will receive a 5oz flask containing 400 calories of supercharged EFS endurance formula to begin the race. Refills from larger 30-ounce jugs will be available at each aid station along the course, ensuring that runners are properly fueled for the duration of their race.

More on EFS Liquid Shot:

It’s called a liquid shot because it doesn’t contain gelling agents that can slow down absorption and digestion. Features include First Endurance’s proprietary 400-calorie endurance formula that boasts over 1500mg electrolytes, 1000mg amino acids and 100 grams of simple & complex carbohydrates, all in clinically effective doses. Plus, it’s packaged in an easy-to-use, resealable, refillable, and fully recyclable container.

We encourage entrants to try and train with EFS Liquid Shot before race day. First Endurance is offering an exclusive discount to Quad Rock runners.
