Ultra marathon: nutrition for endurance

Good point Jon, I always try to have food to hand as well. Not just stuck away in a pack where it's too easy to ignore. Stuff food into every pocket you have, buy small pouches to zip tie (or sew) to your running pack if they aren't already where you want them.



One further thing to add to the article - eat early, even as early as 20 minutes into your event, and then eat little and often. Taking this approach stops the stomach from 'shutting down'.
