“What do you eat during a race?”
It’s a common question, yet the answer is never straight-forward.
Race nutrition depends not only on the length of the race, but any number of variables like terrain, weather, and your personal preferences.
There are, however, a few strategies and rules I like to follow when planning out my race day nutrition. In today’s episode of Trail Talk, I share my basic approach for fueling a marathon on up to a 100-mile ultramarathon.
Here’s what I covered in today’s show:
- How many calories should you eat per hour?
- Why I stick to mostly energy gels (even during an ultramarathon)
- Consuming real foods from an aid station
- When I switch from a handheld to a two-bottle pack
