Mind you, I did an 8k mountain race yesterday, and the amount of gels and fluid people were carrying was ridiculous. You'd lose more time trying to get the damn wrappers out of the elastic tags than you'd gain from energy intake


If there wasn't a rule stipulation saying you must carry and it wasn't 8 k of near vertical climb and no refreshments at the end....why would anyone carry anything?

No idea, I do the Excalibur marathon which includes much of this route, and I don't carry as much as some were yesterday. Madness

In fact, at one point before the start, I thought I'd made a dreadful mistake and it was 80k not 8....
