Anyone know what was available last year
Am thinking of getting some of the same drinks/gels/bars that will be on offer at Regensburg and assuming it doesn't change from last year that will mean the PowerBar Performance stuff.
Can anyone that did the race last year remember exactly was on offer (eg flavours)?
Ideally I don't want to get one flavour and get used to it only to find out it's not being used on the day (or should I just HTFU and do the piratey thing and try something new on race day...). Obviously things may change from last year but at least if I know it was used last year then there is a high likelihood of it being available again.
oops! see below.
Why bother about last year? The FAQs on the IMR website state what's available:
During the race, PowerBar Performance Bar (Vanilla, Cookies and Cream, Banana flavours), PowerGel (Green Apple, Strawberry Banana, Vanilla) und PowerBar Performance Sportsdrink. There will also be water, Cola, fruit, cake (cake only on the run course) and lots more.
In the Athlete´s Garden) at the Finish lots of food on offer including rolls, salted biscuits, fruit, salad, cake etc. And I'm willing to bet there'll be beer on offer too, never been to a German race that didn't have it.
As you sya tho .. things can and do change even the day before, surely its better to get used to a miriad of tastes just in case?
Thanks guys for all the input. Was going to get a mix anyway Meldy but just wanted to be sure it was a mix of flavours that will actually be there if I am going to go to the effort of actually getting PowerBar stuff (I usually use other brands).
IW and Rosey- I did read the FAQ and in the English version it doesn't actually state the flavours. Switched to the German version just now in case that is where you spotted it and indeed the flavours are there in German! Maybe the translators for the website couldn't work out the flavours! Thanks though for posting them up in English though as am sure I'm not the only one who wouldn't have looked at the German site.
