This summer we've been busy!
It has been a jam packed summer for the Asend Crew. We have been sponsoring various events, supporting a handful of cycling teams and making our first attempt to get the product into retail shops. Have we told you it's SUPER busy all the time when you're launching a business, working full time and raising two young families? The goal this summer is to get our products into as many mouths as possible because we know that once you taste it you will be hooked.
Here is a little recap of some of the events we've attended and partnerships we've created.
Partnership with Rollout App's Summer Series
Rollout App is a new meet up app and they have been hosting a variety of events including trail running, yoga and mountain biking this summer. It has been fun to provide hydration at their events and connect with the community. Give them a follow @rollout_app and download the app!
Partnership with the Salomon SLC Retail Store
We have had the pleasure of partnering with the Salomon Retail store located at City Creek Mall. It has been fun to be a part of a few yoga events and provide hydration to the participants as they start their day.
Kids Adventure Games Sponsorship
The popular nation wide kids adventure race came to Park City yet again this summer and we were lucky enough to be a sponsor on-site to keep all the kids hydrated. This was an absolutely amazing event and we will sure to be back again next year.
Additional Event Sponsorships
UCI CX Mountain Bike Race at Solider Hollow
We also made an appearance at the UCI XC Mountain Bike race at the beginning of the summer which was held in Midway at Solider Hollow. It was there where we met the guys from the Reno DevoMTB Team and are now proud to say we are their official hydration sponsor. We wish them good luck as they head to MTB Nationals this week.
Mid-Week Race Series in Heber City, UT
We checked out one of the mid-week race series events in the spring, handed out samples and discount codes and had a great night with everyone who showed up for the first race of the season.
BURN 5k in conjunction with the University of Utah's Burn Unit
We were the official hydration mix sponsor for the annual BURN 5k run this spring which supports the University of Utah's burn unit and is a fun family event for burn survivors, 1st responders and nurses.
Wow ... now that we're recapping all of this we really were busy this summer. We also shipped out a ton of product for events happening outside of UT and provided hydration for bachelorette parties and welcome packs at weddings.
So if you or anyone you know are putting on an event and are looking for a drink mix sponsor please feel free to reach out firstname.lastname@example.org. We might just have an open spot for your event.
As we just begin our blogging endeavor ... coming up we'll be sharing some spotlights of the teams and clubs we support, which athlete/ambassadors are behind our products, what the fall is looking like for us as the Cyclcross season approaches. Our co-found Jamey Driscoll just launched his new program. We will also be sharing why we exist, who's we are, why hydration is important and what makes us better ... you won't want to miss it so sign up for our newsletter to stay in the know.
