Adventure Medical Kits has been named the exclusive lightweight safety gear of the North American Adventure Racing Series (NAARS). NAARS is a premiere international adventure racing (AR) series which hold races all across North and Central America. The partnership between these adventurous companies will provide the series with survival gear for elite AR athletes as well as prizes for winning teams in NAARS races.
American Adventure Sports was founded in 1997 with the idea to create events and provide products that cultivate a passion for nature and activity. Since then, thousands of individuals have participated in AR events as a way to learn, grow and improve their lives through sport. American Adventure Sports first expanded its offerings in 2009 by opening a retail location in Indiana, PA to provide the tough-wearing outdoor and adventure gear needed by AR participants. The company continued to grow and moved to Greensburg, PA in 2012 where it also now houses a fully functioning in-house video production branch, supports a partnership with local universities, and operates an online store that provides top-of-the-line adventure racing and outdoor gear.
“Safety is our main concern during any Adventure Race. Even though our racers are tough, we realize that the human body has its limits,” said Doug Crytzer, Owner and Founder of American Adventure Sports. “We’re thrilled to have a partnership with a company whose products we can trust putting the lives of our racers in.”
The NAARS Coalition, consisting of dozens of race directors across the continent, is dedicated to creating synergy and positivity within the AR sport and providing opportunities for athletes and sponsors. As a part of that effort, Adventure Medical Kits will act as an in-kind sponsor, providing various types of gear to the winners of the NAARS Prime and Prestige level events and for athletes on the NAARS endorsed AR team, TeamSOG.
As American Adventure Sports continues to expand its retail operations, Adventure Medical Kits products will be available at its current retail location in Greensburg and on its ecommerce site.
