Description

Comrades Marathon is a name that is known around the world as a test of pure grit and a celebration of perseverance and comradery. We embrace the long road, not knowing how the day will end. One thing we know for sure is that if we fuel right, you will eliminate a number of risks that are inherent with running ultra distances.

We have designed a race pack for the Comrades Marathon. It works on the basis of +/-70g of Carbohydrates on average per hour for a 9 hour run which totals 660g of carbs for the duration of your run. This excludes the pre-race fueling the days preceding Comrades.

The total carbohydrates in the race fuel pack is 900g. With 660 being allocated to the race day, and 240g being allocated to the pre and post race loading.

The thinking behind this design is that if you want to run a 7 hour comrades you will increase the carbs per hour. If you plan to run an 11 hour comrades you will reduce the amount of carbs per hour. If you are running a 7 hour Comrades you will increase your carb intake by 20g additional per hour for 90g per hour. If you are running an 11 hour Comrades you will decrease your carb intake by 10g to 60g per hour.

Our race fuel plan for Comrades is based on using Maurten for the entire day, with only small deviations when you feel you need something ‘different’. Drink water to thirst. Consume salty potatoes or bananas as you would normally. Alternate Caffeine and regular products when consuming.

Important note : The Comrades Marathon Race Pack can be purchased online and collected from the Durban Expo while you register. We are only making the race packs up a week before comrades and therefor we cannot ship these packs to your residential address.

Visit the Maurten stand to collect your pack, or you can buy the race pack at the expo on the day. We have 100 race packs available online.
