STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colo. (October 15, 2015) — Honey Stinger, the leading manufacturer of honey-based nutritional products, is pleased to be the official gel sponsor of the 2015 Nike Women’s Half Marathon San Francisco. Honey Stinger will provide gels for a training series leading up to the race, in Nike VIP and early-bird registration bags, and at one course aid station along the scenic San Francisco race route, which starts downtown in Union Square and finishes in the Marina neighborhood on Sunday, October 18.
“We are thrilled to introduce the 25,000 runners on this stop of the Run Nike Women Series to our energy gels,” says Len Zanni, Honey Stinger marketing director. “Honey Stinger gels are dramatically different from other energy gels on the market, as they contain honey and other organic ingredients, making them easy to digest during exercise while providing the calories needed to perform.”
Honey Stinger’s Classic Energy Gels contain 95 percent honey, fortified with B vitamins and electrolytes in two flavors: Classic Gold and Caffeinated Ginsting. Stinger Organic Energy Gels combine a blend of organic tapioca syrup, organic honey, electrolytes, sodium and potassium in six flavors: Fruit Smoothie, Acai Pomegranate, Vanilla, Caffeinated Chocolate, Caffeinated Strawberry Kiwi and available January 1, new Mango Orange.
