Nutrition can mean the difference between winning a race and not even finishing a race. Athletes who did not have a great race often state that it was caused by nutrition related issues: they ran out of energy, became dehydrated or experienced stomach problems. They ingested too much, or ingested too little. They tried new products they had not used in training and so on.
Challenge Wanaka has partnered with PURE Sports Nutrition as provider for our on course nutrition. For more information on what will be available on course and what to train with, click here.
