Rise&Grind Coffee Co partners with B-Active Sports

Rise&Grind Coffee Co partners with B-Active Sports Tinman Series and Durban Ultra. Giving you the energy boost you need to perform at your best.

Rise&Grind Coffee Co is proud to announce their appointment as the official coffee partner of B-Active Sports, Tinman Series and Durban Ultra sporting events.

Gareth Marshall, Rise&Grind owner, said: “I am very excited about this partnership. The synergy and alignment were clear – coffee and sport go hand-in-hand; so joining endurance sports and great local coffee was an easy decision.” 

The benefits for athletes using coffee to supplement their workout was a key influence for Gareth in setting up Rise&Grind Coffee Co and has become a huge part of the company's focus - to live a coffee-fueled life and seek adventure daily.

Coffee is well-known to enhance athletic performance, providing a caffeine energy boost during high-intensity sports and strength training. With many sugary pre-and post-workout drink options, it is equally effective and a more natural choice, during both training and competition.

“Coffee, like sport, also has the power to bring people together. This passion inspired the idea by Gareth to create the brand and develop the most delicious coffee, both to aid performance and for people to socialise together,” said Damian Bradley, Race Director at B-Active Sports.

Tinman Series
