NAARS is a premiere international adventure racing (AR) series which hold races all across North and Central America.

“The entire Ideaz team is excited to partner with such a driven and passionate individual (Doug Crytzer) and the very progressive and responsive NAARS staff. Our partnership with NAARS will not only allow us to grow in this market segment, it will provide us will the opportunity to allow NAARS athletes maximize their potential,” said Cliff Zlotnik, Ideaz, LLC Chief Strategy Officer.
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.
“Adventure athletes compete through some pretty nasty conditions, so they’re no strangers to bumps and bruises,” said Doug Crytzer, Owner and Founder of American Adventure Sports, “which is why we’re so thrilled to have Toast and Dr. Greenfield’s brands a part of the NAARS team this year. They have anything our athletes need to prevent or treat their aches and get them back to being 100% as soon as possible.”
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, Ideaz, LLC will act as an in-kind sponsor, providing Toast brand analgesic products and Dr. Greenfield’s specialty skin care products to winners of the NAARS Prime and Prestige level events for athletes on the NAARS endorsed AR team, TeamSOG.
As American Adventure Sports continues to expand its retail operations, a range of Ideaz products will be available at its current retail location in Greensburg and on its ecommerce site.
