Highlights you don’t want to miss:

  • All Kosher, except Energy Chews are manufactured off-site and we aren’t able to ensure Kosher certification.
  • All hydration drink mixes are completely free of wheat, gluten, soy, dairy, and nuts.

What our Nutritionist* Says:

Skratch Hydration: A full drink mix that contains all the electrolytes needed to help you stay hydrated and keep your muscles working at their best plus a small amount of carbs that will provide a little more energy without any upset stomachs.  The electrolyte balance of Skratch is based off of what is lost in sweat, so you get exactly what you need and nothing extra that your body doesn’t want.  Make sure you stay on top of your hydration by drinking before you feel thirsty.  If you’re thirsty, you’re already dehydrated!

Skratch Bars:  A bar filled with nutrition to keep you fueled during your run without being a hard, dry sugary energy bar.  Made with all whole ingredients, Skratch Bars are designed to digest while being active and provide electrolytes and a small amount of protein and fat to help you stay satisfied on your run without causing an upset stomach.

Like any new endurance nutrition, I recommend trying this out on shorter runs first and becoming acclimated to how your body reacts to it before using it for a long run or during a race.

What our staff say:

“Last week I ran 4.5 hours on the IAT…Hydration was one bottle of plain water and one bottle with Skratch hydration. It went so well…I prefer it (to other brands) because I want a more natural product” – Jodi O.

*Emily Bauman, MS, RD, CD went to undergrad at UW-Stout for dietetics where she also ran track and cross country.  For grad school and dietetic internship, she went to West Virginia University where she held a graduate assistantship (GA) in which she was responsible for helping build the sports nutrition undergrad curriculum alongside the undergrad program director and WVU’s sports dietitian.  This is also where she first started working at a running store, too (Morgantown Running)

Currently, she works at Bellin Health as an inpatient dietitian as well as an outpatient dietitian at the Marinette clinic where she does a wide variety of nutrition counseling and diabetic education.

She enjoys running, swimming, and biking as her main activities, but will also pull out her rollerblades, kayak or stand-up paddleboard occasionally to change it up.

When she is on a long bike ride, she likes to fuel up with GU, Huma, Skratch and alternate with water along the way.
