Washington State Potato Commission promotes potatoes as fuel at the Humana Rock ‘n’ Roll Seattle Marathon


Washington State Potato Commission (WSPC) actively promotes potatoes as a performance fuel using their tagline, “Powered by Potatoes,” at the events they attend. In June 2019, the state organization proudly promoted potatoes as fuel at the Humana Rock ‘n’ Roll Seattle Marathon. As a sponsor of the race, WSPC had a booth at the pre-race expo, where they had the opportunity to exhibit their campaign and educate runners about the many health benefits potatoes have to offer. In addition to handing out educational information, recipes, and performance swag, the organization also supplied runners with Washington grown potatoes. These spuds were a huge hit as some racers ate them the night before the run, while others ate them as a post-race snack. If your organization does not have event materials that showcase the potato as a performance fuel, reach out to Potatoes USA to borrow a set for your next event!
