Topic: Everything You Ever Needed to Know about Race Fueling

This webinar will discuss one of QT2's Five Cornerstones: Race Fueling. Race day nutrition plays a critical role across all race distances, but especially the marathon, 70.3, and Ironman. Race Fueling Plans take a great deal into consideration, and are very detailed, addressing the personal needs of each individual athlete. QT2 has successfully created over 600 race fueling plans for athletes across the country.  Learn about effective carbohydrate loading protocols, why apple sauce is such an ideal pre-race breakfast, and how race fueling practice makes perfect.

What You Will Learn:

  • How to calculate carbohydrate, sodium and fluid requirements for all race distances.
  • How to properly carbohydrate load for all event distances.
  • How to approach race morning breakfast and timing of that breakfast.
  • Review of electrolyte supplements and explanation of what works, who needs them, and why.
  • What sugars make the most sense for race day and why.  This includes specific product recommendations.
  • How to adjust race fueling plans for race day conditions…hot, or cold!
