Ever increasing numbers of recreational athletes are training for endurance, adventure and ultra events such as:

  • Sportives ranging from 80km to 300km
  • Land’s End to John O’Groats rides
  • Ironman or Slateman triathlons
  • The Dragons Back race or Leadville Trail 100
  • The Transcontinental, Trans Pyrenees or North Cape 4000 races

Looking to elite sport for training and nutritional guidance might seem a logical decision for recreational athletes.

However, as Renee will explain, training (and eating) like a pro actually may not be the best way to achieve your performance goals!

At this special event, we’ll delve into:

  • RED-S: relative energy deficiency in sports (insufficient energy intake relative to the amount of training being undertaken)
  • A low carb diet and athletic performance (considerations for women and men)
  • Fasted training – is it a good idea?
  • What should you eat – and when – to support training and recovery
  • Performance, weight, and relationships with food

Tickets for this special event are £10 each including a deliciously healthy buffet of flatbreads, dips and salads. Doors open at 6.30pm for a 7pm start.
