Karma Sherpa to Summit Everest…Again!

slide1In March 2016 a small group will be attempting to summit Everest, led by Karma Sherpa (pictured above). If they succeed it will be Karma’s 6th visit to the summit.

For most of their trip if not all, they will be using Extreme Adventure Food, BeWell Expedition Food, Extreme Ultra Fuel and Extreme 4:1 Endurance drink to keep them going. The nature of our food, high energy and low weight means they can get the maximum amount of nutrition without carrying heavy rations.

The Coxless Crew Row the Pacific

December 15th, 2015 – The women of the Coxless Crew are nearing the end of a rowing trip for Charity from San Francisco, California to Cairns, Australia. The route has only ever been completed by solo rowers or pairs, so the Coxless Crew are the first to attempt it as a four person team and as a continuous three stage row. They have been rowing all this time to raise money for Breast Cancer Care and Walking with the Wounded. If you’d like to donate to their cause please click here.

We have been proud to supply all of their food on their journey, resupplying them in Hawaii and Samoa. We’ve also shipped them a few items to help them on their way, such as fur mats to sit on.

The team name the ‘Coxless Crew’ came about as the driving force behind the project was a woman named Sarah Cox, but unfortunately she had to drop out, but they’ve carried on without her taking her name with them on their journey. The photo above is tracking them on their website here if you want to follow along!

Ultra Marathon Pack

Mohammad Ahansal has won the Marathon des Sables 6 times, the Fire and Ice Ultra in Iceland once, and has won many other Ultra races. He knows what it takes to get through these tough endurance races and what nutrition is needed. That’s why he’s worked with us to develop the AHANSAL Multi Stage Desert Food & Nutrition Pack, which includes all your food and recovery drinks for a 7 day race.

Since Ultra’s are physically demanding, it’s important to keep yourself nourished, while carrying the least amount of weight while competing. Extreme Adventure foods are a higher energy, lower weight version, of the popular Freeze dried foods market. Not only are many packs lower weight, but many of the Extreme range take up less space, for example you can get 5 extreme Spaghetti Bolognese, into the space of around 3 packs from our competitors, for similar weights and Energy. If you will be carrying all your supplies in a backpack, this means less weight and more space in your pack for other essentials.

Let us take out the food planning aspect of your race so you can focus more on training. Grab the Ahansal pack and you’ll be sorted. You can find the full list of included packs and purchase them here
