Take me on all your #soulsavingadventures
We're Colorado born. We love these Rocky Mountains and we love seeing cannabis consumers taking advantage of all the athletic opportunities within. From the beginning, we've been supporting and sponsoring athletes, both amateur and professional. From professional endurance mountain bikers, and professional freestyle skiers to local triathletes and professional disc golfers we love the ways our athletes believe in the brand and use cannabis as part of their training and recovery. We're incredibly thankful and proud of #turtletribe athletes!
Justin DuBois - Backpack Athlete, Endurance Mountain Biker
Justin Dubois, a bikepacker athlete, has completed the triple crown of ultra-endurance mountain biking, an incredible feat including the Arizona Trail Race 750, Tour Divide, and the Colorado Trail Race. “I would bring ibuprofen on long rides and now I don’t take it ever anymore,” says Justin. “It’s all CBD now. It’s completely changed the way I self-medicate as far as daily dings and sports-related stuff. It’s like, the answer.”
Justin also sat down with our Co-Founder, Doug for a podcast, take a listen:
Burning Man, Lyons Colorado
The Burning Can Fest celebrates the adventurous lifestyle of Lyons, CO. Events include a BMX dirt jump comp, slack line, dog jumping and more. Then came the tragic flood of 2013 that almost wiped Lyons off the map. Oskar Blues merged it’s Burning Can festival into the event as a way to raise funds for the town’s recovery. Since then the event has grown and won awards such as: Top 10 Beer Fest by USA Today, the “Best Multi-Sport” and “Rowdiest Event” of the Rockies by Elevation Outdoors Magazine. In 2019 Lucky Turtle sent a team of local athletes for the Beer Relay, including a 4 person team taking turns running 5K mixed-terrain laps, while drinking a beer before you pass the baton. Our team might not have won, but they enjoyed every steep, beer-drinking step of the way.
