It’s safe to say the training weekend was a massive success. We managed run a total of 42 miles with over 10,000 feet in just two days. We were training and testing trainers in the Lake District and we definitely put the Scott RC trainers through their paces. This was the first organised training weekend for Team Mountain Fuel and it was a great opportunity to spend a couple of days training with some of the top ultra runners around. It’s not every day you get the chance to talk about training and run with people at the top of the sport you love, who regularly represent their country in addition to testing out the new Scott RC trainers. It was a fantastic experience to be a part of and one I have learned a lot from. Continue reading

Gels do work in moderation for some people but for most of the people we talk to they don’t, which is why our Mountain Fuelers kept asking us for an alternative. Continue reading
