Powerade once again kept triathlon participants fueled up and energized at BAARK!’s (Bahamas Alliance for Animal Rights & Kindness) seventh annual Powerade Potcakeman event, on Feb 10. The Caribbean Bottling Company (CBC) returned as the proud title sponsor for the sixth consecutive year, and hydrated athletes throughout the race, which took place on Jaws Beach.

The Powerade Potcakeman Triathlon is one of the largest triathlon events in the Bahamas. Over 200 athletes, from around the world, competed in the swimming, running and biking event, which aimed to raise funding for BAARK!’s animal education and spay/neuter programs in the Bahamas.

Laura Kimble, Head of BAARK, noted that they were delighted to have Powerade back on board as a presenting sponsor for the Potcakeman Triathlon. She also noted that CBC’s ongoing financial commitment has helped tremendously with the growth of the event over the years, and that the athletes really enjoyed having both Powerade and Dasani available for all their rehydration needs during and after the race.

“At Caribbean Bottling, we believe in the mission of BAARK!. They help hundreds of animals, each year, through their work and education initiatives,” noted Nikia Wells, CBC Marketing Manager- Communications. “We are happy to support their efforts and had a great time keeping all of the athletes hydrated at this year’s Potcakeman event.”

CBC also had a relay team that took part in the race. Michelle Hunt, Andrew Hanna and Philip Rolle competed in the swimming, biking and running events, respectively.

 “We would also like to say congratulations to our CBC relay team. Michelle, Phil and Andrew are all members of the Caribbean Bottling family, and they did a fantastic joy during the event. We could not be any more proud of their performance” added Wells.

The Potcakeman Triathlon sprint consisted of a 750m swim, 12-mile bike, and 5km run. Athletes had the choice to compete in all three disciplines, or via a relay team.
