As a marathon runner, I know importance of proper nutrition and energy supplementation during those gruelling 26.2 miles. Every step, every stride, and every heartbeat counts as we push our bodies to the absolute limits.

Every ounce of energy can make a world of difference when you’re out there on the course. My marathon is just three weeks away, and I’ve been trailing the new Maurten Gel 160 in my training sessions. This gel is poised to be a game-changer in our quest for peak performance.

This is still the Gel
Still the cleanest
Still no colours
Still no preservatives
Still hydrogel — that’s the innovation

Now, let’s talk about fuelling – the lifeline for marathon runners like us.

Fuelling when it matters most

Maurten has been my trusty companion during my training sessions for over a year now. The new Maurten Gel 160 provides us with a hefty 40 grams of carbohydrates in each sachet. That’s right; it means we can fuel up more effectively, ensuring we get the right amount of carbs per hour, no matter how long our race or training session is.

Using the same Hydrogel Technology as it’s previous gels it delivers a rapid and substantial supply of energy that our bodies can efficiently use.

Comparing Gel 100 and Gel 160

Both Gel 100 and Gel 160 have the same fructose-to-glucose ratio of 0.8:1. Gel 100 contains 25 grams of carbohydrates, while Gel 160 contains 40 grams. These two sizes can be swapped out as needed, based on your training or racing circumstances allowing you to customise your fuelling effectively.

Simple ingredients, powerful performance

One thing that sets Maurten Gel 160 apart is its simplicity. With just six straightforward ingredients, you know exactly what you’re putting into your body:

  • Water
  • Glucose
  • Fructose
  • Calcium Carbonate
  • Gluconic acid
  • Sodium Alginate

There are no unnecessary additives or hidden ingredients – just clean and effective fuel to power us through our marathon journey.

As we gear up for our upcoming marathons, why not consider incorporating Maurten Gel 160 into your nutrition strategy. It’s a clean, efficient, and innovative solution that has made a remarkable difference in my training.
