Crossed Paws Animal Haven has been selected for the 2nd year to be the beneficiary of the UCAN Half-Marathon!! Once again, we’ll have some adoptable pups on site at McKinney High School before and after the race for all participants and their families to meet & greet. You never know… you just might find your newest family member!!!
About the race… The name comes from our partner, Generation UCAN, the go-to sports nutrition of Boston Marathon winner Meb Keflezighi and everyday runners looking to improve their times and stay fit.
UCAN Fuel will be available, starting 45 minutes before the race. UCAN’s revolutionary sports drink is powered by SuperStarch, a unique carbohydrate that delivers steady, long-lasting energy by keeping blood sugar stable. SuperStarch was originally developed for kids with life threatening hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) and helps runners avoid the highs and lows in energy caused by sugar-based products. One serving of the product will provide runners with 90 minutes to 2 hours of steady energy.
