On April 12, 2013, the world’s leading global obstacle race series, Reebok Spartan Race, is proud to announce that SNAP Infusion, the creators of SUPERCANDY, will be the official SUPERCANDY of the 2013 season. This partnership aims to unite both brands in their missions of providing athletes the tools they need to compete at the highest levels of the obstacle racing sport and most importantly, have some fun along the way.
“The Spartan Race brand is a natural fit for our functional and delicious SUPERCANDY and we are very excited to join forces with them in 2013,” said Eric Stoll, president, SNAP Infusion. “The Spartan athlete works hard to train for each race and we’re proud to be able to deliver new flavors in a functional snack that will enhance their performance. Spartans Race athletes should look for every advantage as they compete in this exciting and fast growing global sport.”
At the 2013 U.S. Reebok Spartan Race events, SNAP Infusion will set up aid stations on course providing SUPERCANDY to athletes to help get them through the race, and compete at their very best.
