If there’s one thing that Adventure Racers, or indeed any endurance runners, talk about more than anything it’s food and drink, or “hydration” as the marketeers would like you to call it. There’s more bollocks* talked about these two subjects than any other, indeed everything else put together.
Whether its running the Bob Graham Round, cycling the C2C In A Day, the UTLD 100 mile ultra or a multi day expedition race like the ITERA, it’s all about calories. How much, how many and how to eat and drink them without going into deficit or throwing them back up onto the floor, or your sleeping bag.
The award winning outdoor retailer Above & Beyond, based in Morpeth not far from TeamFans, is providing some of the food we’re carrying on the ITERA. The freeze dried rations from Extreme Food should provide tasty, easy to prepare calories when on the move.
