Phase3 - Partner Sponsor



Phase 3 Nutrition™ was created by competitive athletes dedicated to helping others reach their athletic potential. Whether you are a beginner, a master’s athlete or compete at the elite or professional level, our thoroughly researched and highly advanced formulations are designed to elicit physiological adaptations beyond what training and diet can do alone.

Masters Athletes
Master’s athletes are a large and growing segment within endurance sports. In fact, 2/3 of all USA Triathlon members are 40+ years old. Endurance training and competition is clearly a great way to stay fit and remain active as we age. While we strive to continue to go faster and keep young, we are always fighting an uphill battle – aging takes it’s toll. Studies have shown that endurance performance potential peaks at about 35 years of age and steadily declines as we get older. Performance then takes a significant dive when we hit the 50-60 age range.

One of the primary reasons for the drop in endurance performance as we age is the inability to train as hard and as long. We simply don’t have the ability to recover the way we used to. So, we train less, with less intensity, and without the training stimulus needed to reach the level of fitness we used to have.

Master’s Endurance™ can help you train the way you did when you were younger. The adaptogens Rhodioa Rosea and Cordyceps Sinensis in Master’s Endurance™ have been studied for their ability to combat stress, which is what our bodies perceive as training volume and intensity. You will not find another endurance supplement on the market with a higher concentration or larger dose of these two adaptogens than Master’s Endurance. Master’s Endurance also has Beta Alanine – known for its ability to increase power output in the high intensity range of aerobic metabolism (1-2 minute efforts).

Whether you are a Master’s athlete or an athlete of any age with the desire to improve your performance in endurance sports, Master’s Endurance can help you achieve your personal best.

Patagonia - Associate Sponsor



Patagonia grew out of a small company that made tools for climbers. Alpinism remains at the heart of a worldwide business that still makes clothes for climbing – as well as for skiing, snowboarding, surfing, fly fishing, paddling and trail running. These are all silent sports. None requires a motor; none delivers the cheers of a crowd. In each sport, reward comes in the form of hard-won grace and moments of connection between us and nature.

Our values reflect those of a business started by a band of climbers and surfers, and the minimalist style they promoted. The approach we take towards product design demonstrates a bias for simplicity and utility.

We know that our business activity – from lighting stores to dyeing shirts – creates pollution as a by-product. So we work steadily to reduce those harms. We use recycled polyester in many of our clothes and only organic, rather than pesticide-intensive, cotton.

Staying true to our core values during thirty-plus years in business has helped us create a company we're proud to run and work for. And our focus on making the best products possible has brought us success in the marketplace.
