Nuun sponsors a variety of teams: triathlon, running, cycling, volleyball, adventure racing, and more. The teams are made up of athletes who are just about as passionate about hydrating as they are about their sport. So you can get to know the teams that rely on Nuun, we have started a Team Spotlight blog series. Look for these posts every couple of weeks. Enjoy!

The Wolfpack Triathlon Racing Team is a passionate group of South Florida athletes who have formed a pack to help one another achieve greatness in the sport of triathlon. Like a pack of wolves, this team lives for the thrill of the hunt, always hunting before dawn, methodically stalking down their goals against the light of the moon, and howling with their packmates after another personal best is chased down.
Because a lone wolf is never as successful as a wolf that hunts in a pack, this Wolfpack hunts together to ensure the mutual success of their packmates. Whether it’s a heart-pounding high-speed tempo training run, a quad-burning hammerfest on the bike, or a lung-bursting pool session, the Wolfpack is dedicated to giving their all, each and every time they train, for their own benefit and for the benefit of the pack.
We hunt joy.
We hunt success.
We hunt competition.
We hunt personal bests.
We hunt achievements.
We hunt excitement.
We hunt passion.
We hunt memories.
We hunt for ourselves and we hunt for each other.
We are the Wolfpack.
When not training, a wolf can be spotted in its natural habitat – in a race or on the podium, enjoying the spoils of another successful hunt. If you spot one of us, give us a friendly howl to let us know that you appreciate the thrill of the hunt as much as we do!
Why does the team use Nuun?
Working out in the heat and humidity of Miami is challenging. So we know how important hydration is. However, we avoid products that contain excessive amounts of sugar and artificial ingredients. With Nuun you are drinking enhanced water. So your body gets exactly what it needs to perform at a high level without the extra calories.
What cool stuff is the team up to this year?
Our big events this year include Ironman Frankfurt (European Championships), the USAT National Championships, the ITU World Championships and the 70.3 World Championships. We will have a minimum of 2 team members representing the Wolfpack at all of these events.
As much as we like to race, we also like to give back. On April 6, 2014, one of our athletes Cristina Ramirez became the able body for Kerry Gruson. We supported Cristina and Kerry throughout their journey, just like any pack would do. See the video here.
