Webinar: Energy Demands And Fueling Strategies For Ironman-Distance Triathlons


(0 votes)

Topic: Energy Demands And Fueling Strategies For Ironman-Distance Triathlons

An Ironman-distance triathlon is a 140.6 mile swim, bike and run odyssey, where athletes typically start at 7 AM and finish anywhere between 8 and 17 hours later. The duration of the event, uniqueness of each individual, changing environmental conditions and the body’s limited ability to absorb nutrients during intense efforts make nutrition a challenge and poor decisions can lead to a 1 to 2 hour slower finish time.
This webinar will help you understand the body’s nutritional needs for an Ironman-distance triathlon by reviewing and discussing relevant research. The presentation will then provide a practical, actionable pre-, during and post-race nutrition strategy.
