Marathon season and race events are in full swing, which means it's time to dial in your race-day nutrition. This bundle has been assembled for a total of 325g carbohydrates, favouring flexibility for everyday athletes and weekend warriors alike.

Based on the recommended carbohydrate intake, the Full Marathon Starter Kit offers a variety of Maurten essentials to sustain energy for every level of athlete. Emphasising on flexibility, the Maurten Full Marathon Starter Kit offers Drink Mixes, slow burning hydrogels, and caffeinated goods that can all be consumed in any order of variety based on nutrition goals.

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 Full Marathon Marathon Starter Kit serves as a general reference to provide high-quality carbohydrates to athletes aiming  anywhere from Sub2:30 - Sub4:30, while also providing the pivotal energy required for everyday athletes looking to finish at their own pace. 

Maurten Recommends:

Based on five (GEL160) to seven (GEL100) GELs in total - or 175-200g of carbohydrate:

Sub2:30 = 3:33 min/km = 70-80 g/h = 1x every 20 min

Sub3:00 = 4:16 min/km = 58-67 g/h = 1x every 25 min

Sub3:30 = 4:59 min/km = 50-57 g/h = 1x every 30 min

Sub4:00 = 5:40 min/km = 44-50 g/h = 1x every 35 min

Sub4:30 = 6:24 min/km = 39-44 g/h = 1x every 40 min

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, offers 25g carbohydrates per gel and won't cause stomach upset.

2 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 25g carbohydrates and 100mg of caffeine per serving, which can help improve focus, reduce fatigue and enhance performance.

General guide:

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


1. Consider Preloading with the Maurten Drink Mix 320 the night before the event 

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

3. As a suggestion consume Maurten Drink Mix 160 pre-race, around 1-4 hours in advanced 

4. Top up with Maurten Energy 160, Gel 100 or Caf 100, following your own dietary strategies

5. Finish at your new personal best!


Maurten Energy Gels and Drink Mixes serve as source of energy.

It is highly recommended that you consider Cramp Solutions and Hydration Solutions to provide the benefit of peak performance.
