Hydration and race nutrition is very important in a race especially for long races and multisports. In a race, you sweat and let go of the nutrients in the body and chances are if you don’t replace them muscle pains, fatigue or even injury can happen. I go over the race course every race on how I can space my hydration both from water stations and from my fuel belt. It also gives me an idea when to take my GU Energy Gel during the race since I usually time it near a water station. It’s nice to have a belt that can carry your hydrations and gels. When training and racing, you need an efficient and lightweight fuel belt and it comes as a great news that Fuel Belt Ironman series is now available at the Runnr Store.
Fuelling is every serious endurance athlete’s concern. What do you drink, and where do you put it? In 1997, triathlete Vinu Malik came up with a solution for triathletes looking for something more elegant and comfortable than simply holding a bottle in their hands the entire length of the run: the FuelBelt.
Designed as a strap-on belt with holsters for ergonomically shaped flasks, the elegance of the design and its ideal weight distribution properties made it the perfect accessory for triathletes and runners who need to bring their own personal fluids on Race Day and in long training sessions.
Today, FuelBelt is the leader in hydration belts and accessories, with dozens of products to cater to the needs of serious athletes. This August, the FuelBelt Ironman Collection will be exclusively available at all RUNNR stores and select Toby’s Sports outlets.
The FuelBelt Ironman Collection features exclusive color styles and discreet “M-dot” badging across a line of 2- and 3-bottle hydration belts and 1-bottle “Sprint” Palm Holders.
“In IRONMANTM, we have found a true partner that values our high quality, innovative products and authenticity in the market place,” said Vinu Malik, CEO of FuelBelt, Inc. and a 36-time IRONMANTM triathlon finisher. “It’s a perfect match that will deliver tried-and-true gear to athletes of all abilities. Our focus on the athlete experience is our top priority and IRONMANTM events are the right platform for driving this message forward. The IRONMANTM triathlon collection will be strong on function and high on style which is exactly what IRONMANTM athletes expect from us.”, he adds.
FuelBelt has been raced with great success by IRONMANTM champions such as Craig Alexander, Cameron Brown, Chris McCormack, Joe Gambles, Heather Jackson, Julie Dibens, Terenzo Bozzone, and Caroline Steffen, among others.
