Please note that details regarding drinks stations in the 2021 event are yet to be confirmed and we will update this page as soon as possible.

HIGH5 create nutritious products with great natural flavours, whether you’re a new starter or an elite professional.

Nutrition in the race

On race day you’ll find drinks stations located in miles 3, 6, 8, 11 and the finish line. As part of our commitment to reducing our environmental footprint, cups will be compostable paper cups. We also encourage you to bring a refillable bottle, which you’ll be able to top up from bowsers of water located in race village and on course.

Water will be available in cups at all stations, and there will be HIGH5 Energy Drink in miles 8 and 11. You will also be offered HIGH5 Energy Drink and Energy Gel Aqua at the finish line.

Here is a range of HIGH5 products. HIGH5 recommend incorporating these products into your training so you won’t be trying something new at the event, and you can focus on giving the race your all.

      Energy Bar Berry       Energy Drink Citrus         Energy Gel Orange
         Energy Gel Aqua          Energy Gel Caffeine        Zero
