Nutrition in the race

On race day you’ll find water stations located in miles 3, 6 and 9 and the finish line. We encourage you to bring a refillable bottle, which you’ll be able to top up from bowsers of water located in the race site when you arrive and finish the event.

At the end of the event, a HIGH5 Energy Gel Aqua will be offered at the finish line to help replenish your energy stores.

There’s a range of HIGH5 products you can incorporate into your training so you can focus on giving the race your all. Click on each product to find out more:
