On Course Nutrition:
Ever wonder where we got our race name from? It comes from our partner, Generation UCAN, the go-to sports nutrition of Boston Marathon winner Meb Keflezighi and everyday runners looking to improve their times and stay fit.
UCAN Fuel will be available, starting 45 minutes before the race. UCAN’s revolutionary sports drink is powered by SuperStarch, a unique carbohydrate that delivers steady, long-lasting energy by keeping blood sugar stable. SuperStarch was originally developed for kids with life threatening hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) and helps runners avoid the highs and lows in energy caused by sugar-based products. One serving of the product will provide runners with 90 minutes to 2 hours of steady energy.
UCAN Hydrate is an all-natural electrolyte replacement drink with no sugar and zero calories. UCAN Hydrate will be served at every water stop on course and contains 5 essential electrolytes to help you replenish the nutrients you lose when you sweat. UCAN Hydrate electrolyte drink was designed by an Olympic dietitian to replenish the mix of nutrients lost in sweat.
Training with UCAN allows athletes to sustain energy on fewer calories and burn more fat for fuel instead of relying on constantly refueling with sugars. All UCAN products contain no sugar, are gluten-free, and easy on the stomach.
