Marathon season is here, which means it's time to dial in your race-day nutrition. This bundle has been assembled for any athlete targeting a half marathon time of 2:15 mins. 


Based on the recommended carbohydrate intake, the Half Marathon Starter Kit offers essential performance fuels to sustain energy levels to power you through the finish line.


A practical guideline suggests that as the duration of physical activity extends, you should increase your hourly carbohydrate intake. While true, a fuel guide is highly personal and depends on individual diets and specific training programs.


Typically, endurance athletes aim for 30–45g of carbs per hour for sessions under 90 minutes, 60–75g/hr for sessions lasting 90-150 minutes, and 90g or more per hour for activities exceeding this duration. Scientific studies consistently demonstrate that higher carbohydrate consumption during exercise directly correlates with improved performance, showing a linear improvement in finish times within the 0–70g/hr range.


Calculating the effect of carbohydrate intake, this Half Marathon Starter Kit serves as a general reference to provide high-quality carbohydrates needed to reach the goal of sub 2:15 while also providing sustained energy for anyone looking to finish at their own pace. 


Each kit includes:

 3 x Maurten Gel 100

A unique energy gel that uses hydrogel technology to deliver carbohydrates and electrolytes to your body. This gel is easy to digest, doesn't require water to be consumed and won't cause stomach upset.


1 x Maurten Gel 100 Caf 100:

A caffeinated version of the Maurten Gel 100, designed to give you an extra boost when you need it most. This gel contains 100mg of caffeine per serving, which can help improve focus, reduce fatigue and enhance performance. 

1 x Maurten Drink Mix 160:

A revolutionary sports drink that delivers high levels of carbohydrates (40g per serving) without causing gastrointestinal distress. This drink mix is designed to be consumed before, during and after intense exercise to keep you fuelled and hydrated.

General guide:

This general outline is to give an idea for starting your Half Marathon run with the Half Marathon Starter Kit and should be used as a reference and tailor it to your own training and dietary plans. 


1. Eat before your run, typically 3-4 hours before and something low in fibre and high in carbs. (White bread & Jam etc.)

2. As a suggestion consume Maurten drink Mix 160 pre-race, around 3 hours in advanced 

3. Top up with Maurten Energy Gel 100 or Caf 100, following your own dietary strategies

4. Finish at your new personal best!


Energy Gels and Drink Mix serve as source of energy.

It is highly recommended that you consider cramp solutions and hydration solutions to provide the benefit of peak performance.
