May 19, 2021

Brand announces sponsorships of 2021 and 2022 US race seasons

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colo. (May 19, 2021) —Honey Stinger, the sports nutrition brand, has partnered with Spartan, the world’s leading endurance sports and wellness brand, becoming the official “on-Course Energy Partner” of the 2021 and 2022 Spartan US event seasons.

“Spartan athletes are training and racing harder than ever before – and they need clean, natural products to fuel their routines,” said Spartan’s Vice President of Global Partnerships Ian Lawson. “Honey Stinger is a proven, optimal choice for our community, and we’re excited continue working with a brand that is so closely aligned with our nutritional values. We know Spartan athletes across the US will look forward to seeing Honey Stinger’s Fuel Station on course.”

Through the partnership, Honey Stinger will provide nutrition support across the full lineup of Spartan US obstacle course racing events. The company will provide its signature Energy Chewsat branded fuel stations on course to help athletes elevate their performance on race day and will offer additional pre-race nutrition support, with its Classic Waffles, giving competitors an extra boost through the season’s most demanding events. Honey’s low glycemic properties make the perfect fuel for athletes by providing a sustained energy boost while blood sugar levels remain constant throughout activity.

“Spartan athletes push themselves to go farther and harder during races and training,” said Mike Keown CEO, Honey Stinger. “Honey Stinger is proud to be providing clean and great-tasting energy to fuel these competitors on and off the course.”

With Spartan’s 2021 race season already underway, the brand and its partners follow all local public health guidelines and have developed extensive protocols to provide a safe racing environment, including limiting capacity at events.
