We have wonderfully stocked checkpoints, that include a large range of products.

One of our partners UCAN Uk supply us with our hydration and energy powders. They also supply gels and bars if that is the option you prefer.

UCAN Uk products are 100% natural and completely sugar free - You do not need sugar and the drop off when you are running. These products are healthier, far better at delivery hydration and energy and you don't get the sugar low.

They use a 'SuperStarch' which is a complex carbohydrate (derived from non-GMO corn) that uniquely stabilises blood sugar levels.
