For 2023, we will have the following products on course:
The GO Isotonic Energy Gel was the world’s first isotonic gel effectively delivering an easily digestible and quick supply of carbohydrate for energy during exercise. They are designed to be consumed without water, minimising the risk of being bloated that can sometimes occur with over-drinking. Provides you with 22 grams of carbohydrate per gel.
Depleting your carbohydrate stores during exercise is one of the major causes of fatigue. Delivering additional carbohydrate during exercise is known to improve performance, race times and delay the onset of fatigue.
The Isotonic formula allows the gel to empty from the stomach quickly as no fluid needs to be drawn into your stomach to dilute the gel, providing fast energy. SiS GO Isotonic Energy Gels are highly practical and can easily be carried without the requirement for bulky bottles.
SUITABLE FOR: Vegetarians; Vegans; Coeliacs; Lactose Free; Gluten Free; Wheat Free; Nut Free

After you’ve crossed the finish line, there will be a range of treats from our event partners:
A SiS PROTEIN20 bar is a convenient on-the-go option made with a high quality plant protein blend for athletes looking for an alternative high-protein snack option that’s low in sugar.
There are thousands of proteins in our bodies that perform a variety of daily functions to promote health, well-being and performance. We must consume adequate protein in our diet so that we have the relevant building blocks to make the new proteins required for our body to function.
As an athlete, after-exercise protein intake, whether it’s weight training or endurance-based, is important for building new proteins because repeated muscle damage and protein-feeding results in muscle growth. In relation to endurance performance, the stress of endurance exercise created a signal to instruct our muscles to make new proteins involved in aerobic energy production.
SUITABLE FOR: Vegans, Vegetarians, Dairy free, GMO Free, Palm Free
