The Large Orange Coolers Seen on Sidelines for Decades
Large orange Coolers & Ice Chests have become synonymous with Gatorade. Seen on the sidelines of sporting events for decades, these rugged Rubbermaid brand dispensers are a necessity when it comes to mixing up large quantities of Gatorade.
Our small and large Gatorade coolers are available in 1-gallon, 3-gallon, 5-gallon, 7-gallon and 10-gallon sizes, with the three larger sizes featuring removable cup dispensers.
Whether you're outfitting a sports team or a work crew, Powder Mix Direct has all the Gatorade concentrates, coolers, cups and accessories that you’ll need.
Gatorade Mixing Instructions
Whether you’re using powder mix or liquid concentrate, check out our new Gatorade Mixing Guide. It features step-by-step instructions, detailed images and links to additional resources.
Although many suggest adding ice in sealed bags or containers, so as not to dilute the Gatorade, we think our way is better. In our opinion, it’s the best way to mix Gatorade!
The Ironman Ten Yard Crawl
The first Ironman triathlon was held in 1978 with its trademarked line: "Swim 2.4 miles! Bike 112 miles! Run 26.2 miles! Brag for the rest of your life."
However, it was a 10 yard crawl in 1982 that inspired many to join the ranks of the triathletes. With the sport gaining attention in the likes of Sports Illustrated, a college student name Julie Moss entered the contest as part of a research project.
Although she led for most of the race, she became severely dehydrated towards the end. With only ten yards to go, she collapsed and crawled towards the finish line only to be passed by Kathleen McCartney. After more than eleven grueling hours, Julie Moss loss the race by 29 seconds, but won the hearts of all who watched.
At Powder Mix Direct our motto is Never Quit! We're inspired by everyday heroes who give it their all and hope you are too.
