Trail Running

No doubt, each time you’re on your next trail run, your body is challenged differently. But there is one thing that is constant: it is your body at work. This means making sure you are fueling your body to feel replenished and empowered to go on your next adventure. Here is a brief guide to fueling before, during and after trail running.

Before

Start your run hydrated and energized by having a snack like our Ultra Energy bars! Be sure to focus on carbohydrates for fuel and small amount of protein for satiety, with a 4:1 carbs to protein ratio to avoid gastrointestinal discomfort.

The ideal ratio for long lasting energy

1-2 hours before exercising

During

Each trail runner is built differently. Consume 100-300 calories per hour of exercise. This is roughly 30-60g of carbohydrates/hour that you can find in our ULTRA Energy Bars or Energy Waffles. If you run less than 1.5h, consume 0.5-1.1L of water and 200 calories of carbs per hour. Above 2h, add on 200mg of salts and electrolytes per hour to your water and CHO intake.

The ideal ratio for long lasting energy

30-60g of Carbs / Hour

After

Your post-exercise meals are just as important as before and during. It plays a big role in what will happen between today's and your next run. Remember: recovery nutrition should target: 1) refueling muscle glycogen, 2) repairing muscle and 3) rehydration. This means recovery meals should contain carbohydrates, protein and lots of fluids and electrolytes.

Carbohydrates, protein, water, electrolytes.
