Cramping, feeling exhausted and buggered racing? SKRATCH THAT!
Skratch Labs is supporting Rocky Trail Entertainment, starting to get to know the #rockytrailracers at the AMB100 Marathon.
We love having Skratch Labs on board, because they sayy that they make sports nutrition designed to help you perform better without offending your gut or your taste buds because we use real food, starting from scratch.
Their mission is simple – to develop food and drinks that taste great, that are made from real ingredients and that solve problems for active people. Most importantly, educate and to continue to learn and grow ourselves – to help our community improve and thrive as they help us to do the same. We know we have a lot of work to do to fulfil this mission and we are the first to acknowledge that we are a work in progress – that things won’t always be perfect. But there’s no better time to start than now!
