San Diego, CA – January 15, 2016 – RaceHQ™, a first-of-its-kind online event planning and purchasing tool for participatory events, announced today a strategic partnership with the Milk Processor Education Program’s (MilkPEP) BUILT WITH CHOCOLATE MILK™ campaign. With a quickly expanding membership of over 1,500 races representing more than 2 million participants, RaceHQ continues to expand its game-changing online marketplace to help race directors produce quality events within budget.
The RaceHQ platform connects race directors with vetted and preferred vendors, provides exceptional value on everything needed to produce an event and streamlines the process of submitting, managing and tracking orders all in one centralized location using its powerful online planning tool. Through its partnership with BUILT WITH CHOCOLATE MILK, RaceHQ will help educate race directors on the science behind chocolate milk for post-exercise recovery and create a channel to provide its members with easy access to chocolate milk to satisfy the growing consumer demand for it at race finish lines. With the newly added Nutrition Category within RaceHQ’s online marketplace, BUILT WITH CHOCOLATE MILK is named the Official Recovery Beverage of RaceHQ.
“RaceHQ is in the business of helping race directors produce quality events within budget, and by identifying and working with partners like BUILT WITH CHOCOLATE MILK we further our commitment of providing the best resources for our members,” said Anton Villatoro, President & Co-Founder of RaceHQ. “Recovery plays such an important role when thinking about maximizing the athletic potential of the participants in an event and we look forward to helping our members take their races to the next level by getting chocolate milk to their finish lines.”
More than 20 scientific studies evaluating athletes from sports including running, cycling and swimming support the benefits of recovering after strenuous exercise with the high-quality protein and nutrients found in low-fat chocolate milk.
“As more and more athletes adopt chocolate milk as their post-race recovery beverage of choice, they expect to see it at finish lines,” said Miranda Abney, Marketing Director at MilkPEP. “We continue to hear from race directors and athletes alike that chocolate milk is a key part of their race experience.
