This race report comes at us from Deanna Blegg, a member of the Moxie Gear/Nuun Adventure Racing Team!
After a successful race in Wulong our Team Moxie Gear/Nuun felt strong and comfortable about backing up the race with The Zunyi Outdoor Quest. The race started on the 16th of October only giving our bodies only two full days rest. They were aching and quite sore so first thing on the agenda when arriving in Zunyi was a massage.
Last week the best players from around the world traveled to The Mines Resort & Golf Club in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to compete in the CIMB Classic. This is a co-sanctioned event between the PGA Tour and the Asian Tour. The field was composed of the top 30 available players from final FedEx Cup rankings, the top 10 available players from the Asian Tour of Merit, as well as 8 sponsor exemptions. This small field of 48 players battled it out for a piece of the $6.1 million purse. With a small field and no Friday cut, this sure made for an interesting tournament.

Here are some photos from last year’s contest for inspiration.
Earlier this year we excitedly announced a new partnership with the Nike Women’s Marathon. We are so proud to be the official hydration sponsor for NWM 2012, NWM DC 2013, and NWM SFO 2013!
We had been counting down and planning logistics for quite a while, but two weeks ago it was finally race week so we packed up and hit the road for what we were hoping would be the most successful hydration operation yet. We send a full Nuun crew to San Francisco to make sure everything went off without a hitch, including setting up a premium hydration station to showcase what we’re all about (hint: hydration).
Our goals were threefold:
1. Make sure every runner toed the start line hydrated.
2. Educate about the benefits and how to’s of proper hydration.
3. Help everyone adhere to Race Rule #1 – don’t try anything new on race day – by sampling the flavors that runners would see on course at every hydration stop race day (Tri-Berry & Lemon Lime).
In every sense the event was an amazing success, from the upscale Expotique where runners could hydrate, try out the latest Nike fashions, try a new hairstyle, or fuel up with healthy snacks, to the awesome packet bags with fancy circular bibs, to the scenic course with Nuun (about) every mile to boot!
We can’t wait to help Nike kick off their first Washington, DC event this April. Stay tuned to our blog and Facebook page to learn how you can apply for a FREE GUARANTEED ENTRY!
