When running, especially when that includes long distances, and hours, you are inextricably intertwined with energy intake. The importance of power during the course of a match, for those who have such great racing experience, seems to be the key to a desired result, which focuses not only on performance but also on pleasure offered by the race and yet avoid the phenomenon of survival.
Basic rationale of the group responsible for the supply of our race is to provide participants with a variety of flavors, such and to satisfy even the most particular requirements. The selection and placement of various food items to refreshment stations was designed in such a way that allows athletes to meet their energy needs. Particular emphasis was given to energy coverage of novice runners who can participate even without dietary protocol. Their design of the stations is suitable to prevent energy loss that may arise from the lack of racing experience.
The proposed selection and placement of items provided in the refreshment stations was designed to meet energy needs in accordance with international recommendations and the relevant scientific literature.
Each mountain race is unique, yet each athlete is unique. The intra-individual differences among athletes are numerous and the effort to satisfy them, at least in the energy level is an incentive for all of us. Supplementary and decisive role in the creation of competitive power played our experiential engagement at the individual level, the creation of similar protocols in our athletes, as well as your views were our design guide.
