Here is RaceSaver™ athlete Scott Dinhofer at the 2016 Ironman® Lake Placid…crossing the line in a personal best 10th place. In his own words…

Used the race saver bag for Ironman Lake Placid on Sunday. Post race I’ve read a lot of forum chatter on how hot it was. I simply filled the bag up at every other aid station on the run & placed it under my hat. This kept me cool and aided in reaching a PR & top 10 AG finish for the first time for me on a day where many others imploded from the Heat.

 

Here you can see Scott using the RaceSaver™ in a more traditional fashion. 

RaceSaver in the Hand

 

With the black leash around his hand, Scott can keep his hands — and his system — cooler than his competitors.

A quick pitstop at any aid station will allow him to fill it right back up with more ice.

When on the run, he can put the ice where he wants…or even open the RaceSaver™ to put some in his mouth or pool the cool water on his head.

Speaking of which, in the photo ^above^ you can see how on Lap Two, Scott has moved the race saver up under his hat.

Once it’s full of ice, you can put the RaceSaver™ wherever you need cooling most.

Some might want to look fast…Scott prefers just to BE FASTER. 

But under the hat isn’t the only place that your RaceSaver™ can help.

Here RaceSaver™ athlete Rob Sabo has chosen inside the front of his trisuit as the most important spot — right over his heart. You can see the tell-tale leash hanging out the front of his kit.

What you might not know is that Rob was on his way to 5th place in his Age Group!

The leash system allows you to place the RaceSaver™ where you need it most, and easily retrieve it at the next stop.

Having Ice When the Competition Doesn’t is a Secret Weapon

Don’t be left behind at your next race, juggling too many cups at the aid station and wasting valuable ice by throwing it down your shorts or missing your hat.
