PREPARE FOR UTMB SUCCESS

Join us in Chesham for a day of UTMB experts sharing their knowledge, experience and tips for the biggest ultra trail race week of the year.

More than 50% of British competitors don't cross the finish line for events they start in UTMB® week. We want to change that, by making sure you have the right knowledge to prepare, the right kit, and - more importantly - the right expectations when heading to the Alps.

Our 2017 seminar had great feedback - and 85% of attendees finished their races during event week.

FAT FOR FUEL

PUTTING THE THEORY TO THE TEST

A few years ago, XNRG's Head Coach Andy Mouncey decided that the only way to get to the bottom of the High Fat-Low Carb debate was to experience it directly.

He committed to a strict 14 day diet reset without carbs or sugars - here he gives his account of days two to nine. Read Andy's blog >
