Seeking advice on Food & Fluid intake during a 24hr 10k relay event.
Does this mean you will be doing numerous 10k's within the 24hours?
I haven't ran in this event but will be able to help you out.
Hi PH2, haven't run myself but have you had a look on their website? They have a race guide and say this about food...
You’re going to burn off a lot of calories over the duration of the event, so making sure that you are fully fuelled is imperative to success. We have caterers on site that will be open night & day preparing hot & cold food, but self sufficiency is a good thing. There’s no queue for one thing! Bear in mind that you don’t want anything that’s too complicated to make or that takes a long time to prepare.
Your time off the course is precious & you’ll want to spend as much of it as possible resting up. If
possible, rope in a partner or friend to be your chef for the weekend to take care of the food. Get a big meal down you the night before & expect to consume little & often when the race is on. Remember to keep well hydrated at all times too. If you are not used to energy drinks, this isn’t the best time to start experimenting with them. Stick to what you’re used to.
Craig, don't think promoting your own paid for services is really what PH2 is looking for!
