The refreshments provided at the real,- BERLIN MARATHON now include products by PowerBar. Sport drinks are better than water for long endurance activities, as they include the necessary carbohydrates in a mix that can be rapidly processed by the body to support performance. They are especially effective on warm days as they replace the minerals that are lost through sweating. PowerBar Energize Sports Drinks, with their special C2MAX carb mix, contain a special ratio of glucose and fructose sources that can increase the rate of carbs that can be digested and used by the body. In addition, they are enriched with the most important minerals that the body loses when sweating. See below for additional information on the ingredients.
PowerBar Gel at the 27.5 km mark
Gels are especially suited for providing optimal carbs during endurance sports. It is important that they are consumed together with 200 to 400 ml of water. Depending upon your conditioning and the intensity of your workout, 1.5 to 3 gel packs can be consumed per hour. You should be aware that the other drinks and foods provided also supply additional energy to your body. The carb gels are usually so concentrated, that if you consume too many without the proper amount of fluids, it can lead to problems in your gastrointestinal tract. There will be a water station about 400 m after the gel stop.
PowerBar Gels with their special C2MAX carb mix, contain a special ratio of glucose and fructose sources that can increase the rate of carbs that can be digested and used by the body. In addition to the carbs, potassium chloride and other ingredients, marked products also contain caffeine. Scientific studies have shown that caffeine can have a positive effect on endurance performance.
You can find out more about the topic of “drinking” at the marathon site, and an article in the guide for the 37th real,- BERLIN MARATHON will provide more information about the gels. For further information about the ingredients, see below.
