Read how one of the world's best runners, Kilian Jornet uses Mountain Fuel. After suffering for years with nausea and an upset stomach on long runs, he's now found a nutrition strategy that works for him.
Running Nutrition | Cycling Nutrition | Triathlon Nutrition and more… From roads, trails or mountains, two feet to two wheels and whatever your ability, Mountain Fuel is a balanced sports nutrition system designed to provide the body with the nutrition and energy to cope with any type of physical activity. The Mountain Fuel system provides sustained energy and recovery whilst also providing the vitamins, amino acids and minerals your body needs to perform at its best, taking the guesswork out of your fuelling needs.
“I love Mountain Fuel, particularly when I use the whole system on race days. This year I achieved my two main goals by winning the CeltMan and CanadaMan, the first person to manage this and without doubt Mountain Fuel has helped me train harder, recover quicker and race to my limit.”
Chris Stirling, Triathlete and Mountain Runner

The five-product multi flavour system has been designed to be used in conjunction with each other, however you can use any of the products individually depending on your exercise regime, intensity and duration.

Simply mix with hot milk or water to give a tasty Chocolate flavoured drink. Slowly sip during the evening to allow your body the optimum time to benefit; just because you’re asleep doesn’t mean you can’t prepare your body for the next day’s session!
2. Morning Fuel (available in Gluten Free) can be utilised at any time of the day – despite its name! By mixing with a little water or milk (hot or cold), use as your pre-event meal or shake. It has been designed to be nutritionally balanced, is light on the stomach, is quickly absorbed and tastes great. Depending on your event/activity you could add seeds, fresh/dried fruit or a small handful of oats. Morning Fuel can also be used to create tasty, power packed snacks to eat on the go while running or cycling.

5. Sports Jelly Here at Mountain Fuel we could have easily produced like for like sports gels, however, we believe that our new product is a great replacement for energy gels, especially when training and competing in endurance events. The Mountain Fuel Sport Jelly with electrolytes is a hybrid of jelly and a drink, and the perfect option for those who like the idea of having a convenient but effective ‘food’option whilst still staying hydrated. Lightly flavoured these jellies are refreshing and come in three flavours Lemon & Lime, Orange and Cola with Caffeine.
