Self Transcendence 24 Hour Race – Fuelling

There are people out there who fuel in a variety of different ways.  The key thing is to find something that you’re happy with and then go with that. Personally, I’m a sugar monster on long distance races as it works for me. I’m also mostly sugar-fuelled in training. Natasha took notes of everything I ate and drank over the race and details are set out below if anyone is interested, together with my mileage every hour over the race.
