Ru El's Running 107 : Hey Tony! | What Are Top Tips For Fueling Long Runs And Ultra-Distance Races?

Ru and ultrarunner Tony Portera (@irunultras) talk about nutrition, fueling, Badwater, snow, and coffee. What are top tips for fueling during long runs and ultra-distance races?

Runner nutrition is a very individualized. Some of Tony Portera’s tips for fueling during long runs and ultra-distance races.
Experiment with different fuels to find what works. Sometime what works in the begin is not what works in the end and vice vera. Tony does high fat, low carb in beginning, then sugar trickles at the end of the race. It depends on the situation. Has evolved that way by experimentation.
Follow what successful runners do for fueling and take bits and pieces and refine to work for you. Tony mentions having gained fueling knowledge from others like Meredith Teranova and Zach Bitter.
Take a look what others do but don’t take it as gospel. Fueling for Badwater. Engineered fuels vs real foods. Craziest thing consumed in a race. What did Jen Vogel feed Tony during an ultra?
You need to get yourself through an event.
 “Don’t stand in ceremony.” – Vinnie Tortorich, when it comes to fueling in a race.
