Trailrunning nutrition

06.06.2019

Trailrunner Mario Ortner has finished the Austrian Trailrun championships on the podium and is now preparing for the Mozart 100 Trailmarathon. We wanted to know from the SPONSER athlete what his diet looks like on a typical day of competition.

Before the start
In the course of my racing years I gained a lot of experience in nutrition. Meanwhile I know exactly what is good for me: The obligatory honey butter roll with orange juice is my breakfast about two hours before the start of the race. In the hour before the start I take either an Oat Pack bar in combination with the Sportdrink Competition in small amounts. A few minutes before the start there is a Muscle Relax Shot to support the muscle functions.

During the competition
During the race I regularly drink either Competition or Ultra Competition Sportdrink combined with BCAA Instant, depending on how long the load will be. I also regularly take Liquid Energy Gels and solid food in the form of the High Energy Satly+Nuts bar. But also the refreshment station is used in passing to maintain the variety of tastes.

After the competition
It is especially important to drink a lot quickly after the race in order to fill the electrolyte stores. After that there's a little something to eat, which I just wanted: Cakes, biscuits, melons, etc. In the course of the day you can enjoy something hearty as a reward: schnitzel, steak, Kaiserschmarrn...
