Cera Products Inc. is honored to have been a platinum sponsor of the 2009 ARMY Best Ranger Competition. The competition took place at Fort Benning, Georgia from May 8th-10th, 2009. Finishing the competition in first place this year was Sgt 1st Class Blake A. Simms and Sgt 1st Class Chad E.W. Stackpole, 4th Ranger Training Battalion, Ranger Training Brigade, Fort Benning, GA.

The competition has rangers competing in multiple events that test each team’s physical, mental, and technical abilities as rangers. This three day competition, held on Fort Benning, consists of selected events such as distance running, push-ups, marksmanship, weapons assembly, foot march, and airborne operation.




Over a three day period, with little rest in between, performing physical and strenuous activities can wreak havoc on the body if it is not properly hydrated. Dehydration can affect the physical and mental capabilities, which hinders athletic performance. CeraSport was given to all competitors, so that they could retain their hydration, strength and performance throughout the three day event. CeraSport is honored to be a supporter of our countries finest, the United States Army Rangers.

Since 1993, the Maryland-based Cera Products Company has worked with renowned physicians at Johns Hopkins University to develop some of the most high-performing medical and sports rehydration products on the market.
