Russ Reinbolt (Marathon Runner) does crazy things.

Russ Reinbolt

Accomplished ultra runner Russ Reinbolt loves a challenge; the crazier, the better. With his motto, “I’m Russ Reinbolt, and I do crazy things,” it’s no surprise he’s decided to tackle one of the world’s most challenging endurance races, the Montane Yukon Arctic Ultra. His day job as an emergency room (ER) doctor has helped refine his focus and stamina, qualities which will help him tackle and conquer one of the world’s most harrowing endurance races. This race regularly tests the limits of human endurance and willpower, and training for a race like this requires unwavering dedication, effort, and superior nutrition. Russ knows the vital role nutrition plays in taking on a grueling race, and he plans on packing his bags for the Montane Yukon Arctic Ultra full of SGC performance gummies.

Athletes Who Inspire: Adriana Mandt

Cyclist Adriana Mandt has had her ups and downs with cycling. She started mountain biking in college, inspired by her parent’s bicycle shop.

Her love of cycling reinvigorated, Adriana signed up for a 100-mile race in 2021 and completed it successfully. She hasn’t looked back since and fuels her rides with healthy nutrition from whole foods, and SGC Mocca Shot energy gummies. (Her favorite flavor is Dutch chocolate.)

Adriana loves spending time in nature with her husband and their three rambunctious rescue dogs.
