RaceNewForest has used ‘Tailwind’ as the on-course energy drink at our winter trail running events and will be continuing the partnership across our Middle/Long-Distance Triathlon programme
We are delighted to have found such an effective product and in particular one which Joanne and Richard are more than happy to endorse through personal experience. Since ‘Infinit’ disappeared from the UK scene we haven’t really bothered with fuel for training but on a recent trip to North Devon between us we cycled more than 1200 miles with over 100 000 ft of moorland climbing with Tailwind the only sustenance and no sign of the dreaded “bonk” at any stage! Most of the rides were between 80 and 110 miles and long days but never out of energy.
And it’s not just us: at the recent HeartBreaker Marathon/Half-Marathon trail runs the athletes managed to consume more than five times the quantity of energy drink we would usually expect to get through. The reason: not only is it super effective but also palatable without the sickly “gloopiness” of some products. After the race we were inundated with enquiries.
If you’re entered for one of our longer races you should get hold of some to familiarise yourself with it and if you’re not in one of our races a) You should be!!! And b) get hold of some Tailwind anyway to see what all this fuss is about .
