The importance of nutrition in endurance events is key to how successful you are in your performance, getting you nutrition right can make a good race great BUT getting it wrong at worst can spell disaster in a DNF or just a very long and gruelling day on your feet.

At XMiles, we understand how important getting nutrition right is to your training and racing, whilst knowing that nutrition requirements are different for everyone, with the added complexity in understanding the changing needs for individuals in the varied events you are undertaking. We also know that this is not a requirement just for the beginner to the sport or a new distance, but also to the many experienced runners who still struggle with nutrition.

The basics of ensuring you are ready pre race including the days before your event, combined with a race day strategy to keep you going to the end. Fuelling early and keeping your energy stores topped up rather than running into a depleted state and experiencing a roller coaster of peaks and lows.


To help understand some strategies and give examples for fuelling we have put together our race day fuelling nutrition guides. These guides are designed to give you a foundation understanding to help you get the best from your race preparation and to give examples of which products we would recommend to fuel you for the perfect run.  

At XMiles, we know every runner is different so this guide should be used as a resource for your nutrition planning, whilst giving examples products to assist in guiding you around a growing choice or brands and products.
