We are excited to have Klean Kanteen® as a sponsor once again. I believe they were one of Auburn Triathlon’s first sponsors.
“It’s a very different world today than in 2004 when we sold our first Klean Kanteen®. Seven short years later, the idea of durable, safe reusable bottles has taken firm hold, and finally provides a meaningful counterpoint to single-use containers and even cheap plastic reusables.
Our mission continues to evolve and our product line will continue to expand to include a wider range of sustainable, reusable solutions.
Our goal is simple: to provide affordable, safe, healthy, products that encourage health, sustainability and environmental awareness.”

SLS3 will be providing $25 Gift Certificates towards our raffle prizes and awards
In 2004 two German pro triathletes met, fell in love and with only passion and very little money started a business that is now known as SLS3. (That’s the short version)…”But really, although corny it’s how it began. With years of swimming and triathlon under our belts along with academic backgrounds in business, sports physiology, nutrition, and a passion to pass on what we learned and know how to do best we founded our business for triathlon race apparel and compression gear. In the beginning we only made a suit, short, top and one kind of compression socks. The reasons were: that’s what you need to do a triathlon, and we didn’t have more money. Those 4 items though were made with great care, attention to detail, German precision and a hefty dose of passion for the sport.
Every item we create now is thought through and developed from scratch, thoroughly tested by us and then, if deemed awesome, put into production. The majority of our products is made in the USA. It is very important to us to keep our carbon footprint small, create and sustain jobs, and help other small businesses by partnering with them.
We choose our materials and trims with great care, we oversee the production from start to end, and our quality check is feared because we control everything that comes in. In our eyes it is the only way to achieve our defectives return rate which is less than 0.5%.”
VFuel was founded in 2011 by friends and ultra runners in Estes Park, CO.
Over the course of several years, through extensive research, testing, and field use, we developed our own endurance gel that did more than just give a quick spot of energy or put unnecessary “trendy” ingredients inside just for the sake of having them. We recognized the three requests that endurance athletes have of their sports nutrition; taste, quality, and performance. Nothing out there truly had all three from an endurance athletes perspective, and we wanted to change that. Runners, triathletes, cyclists, etc, devote so much time and effort into their passion, why shouldn’t they expect a product that gives it all to them?
VFuel does just that. We spent several years fine tuning the ingredients for optimal performance based both on the science behind each ingredient and actual field testing through training and racing for races such as the Leadville 100, Hardrock 100, Ironman, Bighorn Mountain 100, Bear 100, and Rocky Raccoon 100, as well as many shorter races at every distance. This was definitely a team effort and what resulted was a gel that not only tastes fantastic, but uses high quality ingredients, and performs better than any ‘energy’ gel out there. Our lab coats are tech shirts and running shorts, our lab spans the trails, mountains, races, bike paths, and open spaces in our back yard. Our office is lit by the sun and the moon, cooled by the rain and the wind, and warmed by sunny Colorado days. It is here that we developed VFuel.

Knee Deep Brewing Company
Knee Deep Brewing Company will be once again pouring the beer this year. We are so excited to have a local Auburn Brewery come share with us their tasty beers. Nothing like a cold beverage like a beer after a hard tough race. You earned it!
Brewmaster, Jeremy Warren (aka the Hoptologist) is a graduate of the University of Nevada Reno. He has been brewing since 2006.
In June 2010 Jeremy founded Knee Deep Brewing Company, LLC. For the first few months of operation, Jeremy was “contract brewing” his beers at Mt. Tallac Brewing in beautiful Lake Tahoe and selling kegs exclusively into the Northern Nevada (Reno) market. In the fall of 2010, Jeremy and Jerry Moore (our CEO & Janitor) met, sampled a few of Jeremy’s creations and ultimately agreed to work together to get more than “Knee Deep” in a premium craft beer brewery.
In his relatively short brewing history, Jeremy has produced over 40 different beers. Jeremy’s brews have received several awards; most recently our Hoptologist DIPA took the Gold Medal earlier this year at The Bistro 14th Annual DIPA Festival. Jeremy and Knee Deep Brewing Company have a rapidly growing reputation and are becoming known for their unique blends and creative outlook on brewing. They take pride in their reputation and strive to continue brewing outstanding craft beers.

Dave Marson, Richard’s son, shared his father’s zeal and chose to make the family bakery his life’s work as well. He spent several decades honing his skills as a baker before acting on an idea he had been exploring for years.
In 2010, Dave partnered with his son Sam to create Nature’s Bakery with mission of making delicious convenient on-the-go snacks and foods that complement health conscious living and everyday active lifestyles.

We are the brand synonymous with bananas. Yeah, you may have guessed it. But why “Barnana®”? Great question! That’s because we believe that the banana is mother nature’s original energy bar. We’ve made ’em even more convenient and flavorful.
We are on a mission to end food waste on organic banana farms by upcycling the bananas that used to go to waste. When “imperfect” bananas have scuffs, are a little too ripe, or aren’t the perfect size – they are typically rejected for export. We take these delicious bananas and turn them into snacks. Pretty cool, huh?
Packed full of potassium! Whether you’re about to go for a run, got done lifting weights or you just need a healthy snack for your daily adventure – we got you. Cramping sucks, but you know what doesn’t? Eating some tasty Barnana®
