Worth looking on ebay or Amazon marketplace for a bargain
To be honest better books are available Pfitzinger,Lydiard and Glover are better bets Continue reading...

I've been told they are using Gatorade as the offical drink at the Dublin Marathon.
Obviously i'd like to try it before race day. Anyone know where i can buy it.

I did a search for it on this site but the threads seemed to be from a few years ago so anyone with more up to date knowledge

Thanks in advance.

I have bought it from Sainsburys in the past Pammie but not really sure if they still do it.

Try the supermarket online shopping - it would give you an idea of whether they stock it or not.

I used to work for Britvic who have got the UK distribution for Gatorade. I know at first they were putting it in all their vending machines before retail outlets so it may be worth trying your local leisure centre etc to see if they have it. Its not ideal as will probably work out a tad expensive to buy it this way but if all else fails it an option.

Thanks guys

Did try sainsbury's online said they didn't stock it but some things you can't buy at Tesco's online you can in store. Crazy but true.

Will try tomorrow and will see.

You can buy it on ebay.
I bought some in Florida last year, its really great, have been looking for it ever since!
We rang Tri UK a couple of weeks ago and they seemed to know nothing about being distributors!
