Preparing for a marathon requires regular training along with a suitable diet.
The OVERSTIM.s Marathon Pack will prepare you on the days running up to the competition, and help you to be at the top of your game during the race.
BEFORE THE MARATHON
- Increase your energy reserves with Antioxidant Malto.
On the 3 days before the marathon, stock up on muscle glycogen, by drinking 150 g of Antioxidant Malto every day, dissolved in 1.5 L of water.
- Make sure you’re at your best possible form at the start of the race by taking an easy-to-digest, energy-packed breakfast, with Gatosport.
Take 1/3 to 1/2 a Gatosport up to 1h30 before the start.
- Stabilise your glycaemia level while waiting for the start and prevent reactive hypoglycaemia brought on by stress with the Warm-up drink.
DURING THE MARATHON
- Each time you eat, take an OVERSTIM.s energy gel to give you regular energy and effectively support your muscle activity during the marathon. Drink 1 to 2 mouthfuls of OVERSTIM.s sports drink or water after taking the gel.
- OVERSTIM.s energy gels provide concentrated energy, vitamins and minerals (magnesium, calcium, sodium…) all of which are required during a sporting activity, in a very small volume.
- The liquid texture of the OVERSTIM.s energy gels makes them particularly pleasant to take during even intense activity, when it is sometimes difficult to consume food.
Why take 8 gels during a marathon?
During a prolonged sporting activity, the bodys ability to absorb carbohydrates is estimated to be 60g to 90g per hour*. The OVERSTIM.s energy gels contain about 20g of carbohydrates and are tailored to the optimal quantity a marathon runner can absorb during a competition. Taking OVERSTIM.s energy gels each time you eat (every 5 km) will help keep blood glucose levels stable throughout your marathon.

AFTER THE MARATHON
- Within 30 minutes following your marathon, take a chocolate protein bar to optimise recovery.
