    Hi Faith! Following up on Dru's question, do you know what flavor(s) of Powerade and Clif (and anything else) will be provided during the (Princess/Tinkerbell) Half Marathons so we can start incorporating into our long run training? Thank you as always!!

    Hi, Emily! 

    You're very smart to try and use the hydration and fuel that will be available on the course before race day! As you probably know, it is not wise to try something during a race that you have not tried before. 

    The POWERADE flavors available on-course at the water stops will be blue (Mountain Berry Blast), or yellow (Lemon-Lime). Another tip is the POWERADE tables are after the water tables, so keep running through the stop until you get to the last set of tables. There is usually a gap between the water and the POWERADE and volunteers will be yelling out what they're holding - this will help keep you from losing time or stopping too early trying to make sure you get the beverage you'd like. 

    As far as the Cliff Shot flavors, that has varied each race. I do know one is caffeinated (usually chocolate or espresso flavored) and one is not, be sure you pay attention to the one you grab if you have a preference. It's the caffeine vs. non-caffeine gels that are more likely to cause gastric issues, more than the actual flavor will.

    Hope this helps, Emily! Keep the questions coming!
