Race Day Nutrition

A long distance triathlon (or IRONMAN) is widely considered one of the most difficult one-day sporting events in the world. The correct nutrition strategy will help you get the most out of your race and you will enjoy it more but do you know what and when to eat and drink on race day? Getting your nutrition right can make all the difference to getting across the finish line and having fun, so check our our long distance triathlon race day nutrition plan to help you plan your nutrition strategy for the race. We recommend you try out your race day strategy in training too.


Recommended products

  • Energy Drink is a must for any long training session, and should be the go-to drink for race day. This scientifically formulated carbohydrate and electrolyte solution helps you sustain your performance and enhance your hydration during endurance exercise. Simply add the powder to your water bottle.
  • Energy Bar is an easy to chew, great tasting bar filled with real fruits and grains to provide you with both simple and complex carbohydrates to keep you fuelled before and during race. It’s easy to carry with you so you can fuel on the go.
  • Energy Gel Caffeine is smooth with a light consistency, making it easy to have on the go. Same as Energy Gel, use this when you need an immediate energy boost – with an extra 30mg caffeine.
  • For an energy boost before or during your race, we recommend Energy Gel Caffeine Hit.  Just like Energy Gel Aqua, each sachet delivers 23g of carbohydrate energy but the Caffeine Hit also contains a high dose of caffeine (100mg). When taking part in tough sports events, like an IRONMAN, caffeine contributes to an increase in endurance performance and capacity. That means you can go further than before!
  • Use our Race Belt to hold your race number and to carry your gels!
  • A delicious tasting recovery shake for after your race. Recovery Drink contains 18g of whey isolate, a top quality source of protein which contributes towards muscle growth and maintenance. Muscles become sore and stiff when they are stressed. Make sure you refuel with both carbohydrate and protein within 20 minutes of finishing your race.
