Nutrition is one big balancing act and is also very individual - what works for someone else might not work for you. It can be daunting, overcomplicated and confusing. We love an ambitious trail running adventure and staying out longer has informed the development of our energy foods. We’re also about eating things that make you feel good, that you look forward to and can stuff into your pack in the knowledge that they’ve got your back.
Stomach issues are the enemy of long runs so we always lean towards real food ingredients, champion plant based options and avoiding anything refined or artificial; being as kind to your tummy as possible.
We’re nut butter specialists. Being higher in protein and good fat content than most running snacks like carb-packed gels, they’re a great choice for longer, lower intensity efforts which generally use more fat for fuel than carbohydrates. So expect a few references to them.
