Ultra Race of Champions- UROC

UCAN Will Ensure All Runners Will #BeAChampion at the 2015 UROC

UCAN Will Ensure All Runners Will #BeAChampion at the 2015 Ultra Race of Champions

May 27th, 2015 (Auburn, CA)-   Bad to the Bone Endurance Sports announced today its expanded partnership with Generation UCAN, the revolutionary nutrition powered by SuperStarch, bringing it on board as the on-course nutrition of the 2015 Ultra Race of Champions 100k, Über Rock 50k, and Cruxy Half Marathon.


UCAN SuperStarch is an all-natural, easily digested, slow-releasing carbohydrate that delivers steady energy and helps maintain stable blood sugar levels during exercise. SuperStarch is a one-of-a-kind energy source originally created for children with a rare blood sugar disease.  UCAN is now used by many of the best athletes in the World such as marathon champion Meb Keflezighi and is quickly becoming the nutrition of choice for road, trail and ultra runners.  Because of the slow-release of SuperStarch and its ability to deliver sustained energy without causing gastric distress, Generation UCAN has been touted as a key product for nutritional success by many sports nutritionists, including Bob Seebohar and Sunny Blende.“Generation UCAN is revolutionizing the way I’ve worked with athletes,” says Seebohar, sports dietitian for the 2008 U.S. Olympic Triathlon Team. “Instead of having to feed athletes every 15-20 minutes with simple sugar-based products, with UCAN we only dose every 60-90 minutes. UCAN stabilizes athletes’ energy levels so they can focus on their performance.”

Bad to the Bone is encouraging runners to register early for this event, and also sign up for the free UCAN sample pack via the UROC website. “Training with this product, just like any nutrition product, is essential for success on race day” points out Dr. Francesca Conte, President of Bad to the Bone Endurance Sports. “The fact that Generation UCAN now also offers their UCAN HYDRATE electrolyte replacement in addition to the SuperStarch fuel – both of which will be available on the UROC courses – makes it a more complete option than ever for ultra runners.  Generation UCAN is offering free samples of both products and that’s the perfect way for the runners to incorporate UCAN into their training.”
Registered runners will also receive a special discount code for continued purchase of Generation UCAN products.


Runners are encouraged to share their experiences and stories about UCAN by using the hash tags: #UCAN and #BeAChampion.  UCAN will also be present at Champions Village Expo in Downtown Auburn, CA on the Friday and Saturday of the event.  The Ultra Race of Champions 100k as well as its sister races, the Uber Rock 50k, and Cruxy Half Marathon will take place on September 26, 2015.  Registration for all events is currently open at www.ultraroc.com.
