A common marathon mistake made by runners is to invest time, energy and money into preparing for a race but not properly “fuel training”. As a result during their marathon they can be slowed by muscle cramps, physical or mental exhaustion, low blood glucose levels, dehydration and stomach pains.
Just as it is important to train and condition your body to do the speed and mileage you desire, you will have more success if you also train your body to fuel correctly. We recommend making “fuel training” a priority from the very beginning of your marathon training program.
Our marathon fueling guide can help runners with an efficient and effective fuel training regimen which is guaranteed to make your race day the best it can be.
