Vita sponsors "ultra-runner" Brock Gavery.

| October 17, 2008


Here is a little submission from Brock Gravery – ultra-runner and recently voted one of the fittest men in America by Outside Magazine.

“The quality of Caffe Vita Coffee is not just enjoyed by coffee aficionados, cafĂ© dwellers or people struggling to get through day to day madness. It is also enjoyed by a rare breed of self proclaimed “ultra runners” who take it upon themselves to run distances that can span over 100 miles of rough terrain and sometimes lasting multiple sleepless days and nights. Refusing to consume hybrid sugar water with fancy labels and empty promises of extreme electromagnetic bliss, these athletes subsist on healthy portions of water and Caffe Vita brew to see them through their odysseys.

Caffe Vita co-sponsors athletes Brock Gavery and Sam Thompson on several of their endeavors – including an 8 day run across the 483 mile Colorado Trail, traversing 8 mountain ranges. Caffe Vita also sponsored the fastest circumnavigation of Glacier Peak – about 90 miles of largely unmaintained trails and river crossings and which took the athletes 36 hours of sleep deprived suffering to accomplish. Caffe Vita is now sponsoring the Second Annual Carkeek Park 12 Hour Endurance Run right here in Seattle. Caffe Vita will be served, hot and cold, the entire 12 hours.
