  • Hydration pack love: Dissolves on contact with water and cleans up with a quick rinse. No residue or science experiments!

Usage

Tailwind was originally sold in tubs with a serving scoop that measured 100 calories and this was nominated as 1 serving. In practice most users would put 2 scoops in a drinks bottle so the 2 serving stickpack was developed for easier refuelling on the move.

Each 2 serving stick pack contains 200 calories. Mix contents with 20-24oz (500-700ml)of cool, clean water. Give it a shake or two, and go! Sip regularly for steady energy, electrolytes, and hydration. For longer efforts, try our medium (30 serving) and large (50 serving) sizes.

Select the flavour from the radio buttons below and then the quantity to add to your basket.

  (833 Reviews)

Each serving is 100 calories.

For endurance workouts, mix contents of stickpack with 24 oz (700ml) of water per hour. Adjust to your personal calorie needs during training, using hunger as a guide. When it’s dialed in, you’ll feel satisfied and energetic, not hungry or full.

On hot days, keep the same calories per hour, but increase water. To use in combo with other foods, reduce Tailwind intake by the calories you’re consuming elsewhere to avoid overloading the gut. For shorter workouts (<2hr), you can use less Tailwind to taste.

Stick pack orange
Thursday, 17 August 2017  | 

First tim user of tailwind, so little apprehensive. Arrived quickly with a nice personal note enclosed.
It comes as powder form and mixed very easily with just a couple of shakes, no real smell to it and it tasted nice with a good consistency, not sticky. The sachet was easy to open.
It used one sachet mixed with 700ml water on a 2hr ride, no gut issues and didn't feel hungry or thirsty.
Further trials needed before I use for endurance event, but great at the moment.

This stuff is fantastic, gels, blocks or anything like that turns my stomach on long runs. And after about 20 miles my stomach just won't keep down food. I use this stuff from the very start of my long runs or races. And sip the whole way through. No upset stomach or bonking. Definitely going to use this from now on. Pity I only found out about it not so long ago.

Having read about Tailwind Nutrition online I was sceptical about it's effectiveness, I find it difficult to fuel whilst taking part in Ironman Triathlons with the usual Stomach issues etc I have bonked numerous times over the last few seasons and decided it was worth a shot ........ Wow ...... Completed a 6 hour endurance ride on Nothing but Tailwind and still had the energy to complete a 6 mile Run after which I don't think I've ever felt especially at a 10k pace (45 mins) I didn't eat prior to the ride and this was my first to.e using the product -no stomach issues , the flavours were great and it was effortless .... no more excuses and hopefully come September a New PB at Ironman Wales ...... Kudos to Tailwind and the Personalised note in the box was a nice touch

I purchased a multipack of Tailwind on the recommendation of fellow competitors in an upcoming ultras. I normally use gels in my longer training runs and races but find them a bit sickly after a while and sometimes experience peaks and dips in energy.
I tried the green tea caffeine buzz on an 18 miler last weekend and was pleased to find one sachet in 500ml water kept me going through it. The taste was pleasant although I had a sip of plain water after drinking Tailwind each time.
Great product and great service and I'll definitely be ordering more

When they say you need nothing else-believe them
Monday, 7 August 2017  | 

I received this product quickly, with a personalised note which was really nice and I hope as the company grows the guys can manage to keep this wee touch going! Stands you out! Standard size really for the individual servings so all good there. I put two sachets in 1.5l water,flavours were decent and not too sweet or sickly! My issue was that I tried this for the first time in an event instead of training and was so scared of running out of fuel because these sachets wouldn't be enough that I added some gels along the way and loads of food. I felt too full up to run. On the plus I never felt empty at any time but I overdid it. Next time I will trust the guys and only use this product as they recommend! Great value for money too. Will absolutely be ordering again. Thanks a lot for your excellent customer service and product-first class

I'll definitely be using Tailwind in UTMB
Monday, 7 August 2017  | 

I ran a 50k in California yesterday and gave Tailwind a proper try. I used nothing else and was well-impressed overall.The course was totally runnable which always puts a bit more stress on getting food in, and hot.

In 4.5 hours I used 5 of the 200 calorie sachets (2 neutral, 2 orange and a lemon). I chucked maybe half a 500ml flask at the last aid station but reckon I got at least 900 calories down my next during the race.

Great service from Tailwind.. and product just works.. helps you go for longer and maintain your energy levels.
Thursday, 3 August 2017  | 

I've been using Tailwind now for a few years. I've tried others. But they just don't work as well. Its easy to consume, tastes great even after drinking it for 30hrs plus (Lakeland 100) And simply helps you maintain your energy levels when eating on the longer events can become hard.
The service is great from the guys - always delivered promptly. And remember - these guys are just like us.. they live.. breath.. and train.. running.. cycling.. & ultras..

Tailwind was recommended to me by another runner. I wondered if it would be too late to trial for my 32 mile RAT run in a couple of weeks. Tried it on a 16 mile training run on Sunday and was really happy. Mixed easy, tasted great (quite subtle tastes) and it just kept me going. Great service and I just loved the personalised note. I will be recommending to others. Thanks guys!

Tailwind not windytail...
Tuesday, 1 August 2017  | 

Im an unfit 40 year old that decided to get fit and set a goal of cycling 180miles over 2 days for charity. I read a lot about eating and what to eat and glucose boosters. Off i set about training. I couldn't work out why i was getting so much gut pain thought it was just belly fat complaining and sorry to say but cycling behind me wouldn't have been pleasant. The glucose drinks were terrible, thought I was having a heart attack on one ride turned out to be sever indigestion put down to glucose boosters! (Which taste rank as well. )

Speaking to a mate who does crazy running across the Sarah and he said forget flapjacks & glucose boosters and use tailwind. Sceptical I gave it a go.

Off I set on the training ride my first 100miles on nothing but tailwind, the difference was night and day, zero stomach pains, zero wind, zero indigestion and more than enough energy. Seriously i cant describe just how good I felt all the way through. The main cycle event was incredible and used tailwind all the way, there were people struggling on the cycle so I gave out a couple of sachets the turnaround in them was insane from totally 'had it' to a spring in their peddles. Magic elixir? Maybe just maybe!

Honestly as you can tell im no superhero, get this, trust it, love it. You wont be disappointed get rid of all that other rubbish.

Would I order again? Just have ready for my first sportive

Tuesday, 1 August 2017  | 

Used tail wind 3 times now first on a trail 10 miler in hot conditions. Didnt take any other calories with me and it did just fine as expected as i was only out a hour and a half but thought id try it on a shorter run to make sure i was close to home in worse case situation it turned my stomach all worked out fine.
Second time was on a trail marathon in bad weather with plenty of climbing i was out for 5 hours and I took 3 600 ml bottles of tail wind and i was a bit sceptical about tail wind being the only fuel you needed all day. I went for 3 hours and nearly 2 bottles in I got a little rumble in my stomach so weather its just habit of taking in food calories I stopped and only took on a small 30g chiacharge bar and i finished the run off an tailwind alone. I was very suprised that that was the only food calories I took on board over the full 5 hours. The very next day I used tailwind on the Joss Naylor Challenge Leg 2 Supporting a local runner I did the out and back on the leg which was 13 miles I did this with two 600 ml bottles.

All in all its a great product and look forward to using it again.

I will most certainly be using it for the support of my support leg of bob graham round in two weeks times and my own ultra challenge in October.

Does what it says on the tin.
Tuesday, 25 July 2017  | 

As someone with not the strongest stomach I've had a few issues with gels in longer races, and Tailwind has proven to be an excellent alternative. My only issue is the flavour is a little strong for me, so I end up making a weaker solution of half a sachet to 500ml of water (about what I drink per hour), which isn't quite enough calories for me so I do still supplement this with the odd gel, but nearly as many as I'd been using previously.

Tuesday, 25 July 2017  | 

I used the stickpacks for a race on Sunday. It was only a 16 miler but had 2,000 feet of hills to bounce over around Bath. Tailwind sustained me very well, I didn't need extra sugar or drinks in the race which I'm usually diving into and it saved me some time as I didn't need to stop at aid stations. So far so good. I'm looking forward to trying these in my next 50k race

Multipack takes the pain out of choosing..
Thursday, 20 July 2017  | 

I recently ran Race to the Stones, using Tailwind for the first time. Having heard of the brand from Dan Lawson, I went on the website and had a read.

As someone with gastro problems, I was particularly keen on the 'no gut bomb' claim, and as a hater of gels, the prospect of a drink containing everything you need in drink form really appealed- particularly the 'naked' flavour- which is a refreshing change to the norm.

Come race day- I was excited to set off with my tailwind and had planned my nutrition strategy. All went well to 25k until sadly I got my tummy problems again and spent the rest of the race on diarolyte in one bottle and tailwind in the other..

So I can't give a proper feedback until I've tried it properly and my tummy's not let me down, but I loved the taste (mandarin good too) love the hype, packaging was easy and hand written good luck note a nice touch, and postage and packing spot on!

Have Salisbury 50km next month, so hoping to use my remaining packs then and to give a better review after that.. impressed with what I had so far though!

Cheers tailwind

Variety Pack!
Wednesday, 19 July 2017  | 

Well, I gave Tailwind a whirl after unsatisfactory trials with gels (which were sticky, bad tasting and upset the old digestive system) and thus far I'm really pleased.

Tastes are more subtle than your average sports drink, and didn't coat the mouth as some do. Kept me energised and hydrated on my Sunday long run - going to work into my running schedule and use in marathon in September. Didn't feel the need to gorge on drink/food post-run, which is a good sign.

I suppose if there's a single downside, it's that the nature of powders means you've got to either pre-load bottles you intend to carry or get good at putting powder in course water. This is less of an issue at ultra events.

'think Tailwind makes a real difference..
Monday, 17 July 2017  | 

Regardless of how much Ive tried tinkering with diet / nutrition I'd been prone to horrible hypos. I had bloods taken & these don't indicate a(ny) blood sugar problem but every now & again I'd hit a sudden onset hypo wall; horrible.
I ordered Tailwind as an experiment really, to try to deal with this. And so far - a couple of trial runs in - it's working & has become key to my wee bit of 'kit' needed for long runs. The troops at Tailwind advised 'little & often' - I make sure to have a slug @ every km & that seems to work for me. I'm not fussed on the taste - feels very much like sugars & salts as opposed to 'lemon' or 'berry' or whatever, but I can live with that. I'm v sure it's steadying my levels & enabling me to keep plodding on (for I am v much a 'plodder' For anyone experiencing any kind of body turbulence, Id recommend you give it a go.

Perfect for the long run drop bag
Sunday, 16 July 2017  | 

I ran my first 40 mile ultra on Saturday and swithered about what to put in my drop bags. Would Tailwind be enough? In the end I decided best to be cautious so I included jelly babies, banana and a sandwich. After the first 10 miles on nothing but Tailwind I had no hunger pangs so decided to ditch the food. Apart from additional water for hydration, Tailwind got me through the 40 miles perfectly. Having a stick pack in each drop bag made everything so much easier.
Thank you for an amazing product.

I used the Tailwind 2 Serving Stickpacks in my Camelbak for the Velathon 110 cycle ride in Wales and found them to be exactly what I was looking for in a straight forward single source solution for electrolytes and nutrition. Tailwind delivered all of this without any drawbacks. The best thing I have now is the peace of mind it will deliver again.
I would certainly recommend to give this a try it's a step up from multiple forms bars gels etc.

I have really struggled with my nutrition on both ultras and marathons. Couldn't stomach gels and found solid foods really hard to eat. Bought these after reading the reviews and have tried them on a couple of runs. Really impressed with the flavour and my stomach coped with no problems.

Will be using them for the upcoming Scott Snowdonia trail marathon in a couple of weeks and in September I will use them on the Ultra tour of Snowdonia.

Great product and would recommend

Non-sticky all day nutrition
Wednesday, 5 July 2017  | 

The first time I tried a gel was also my last - not keen to repeat the experience! - so when a friend recommended Tailwind I cautiously gave it a go.
I am a *total* convert and now use it on all my long runs. I hate overly sweet typical sports nutrition so Tailwind is really a game changer. I love the Naked 'flavour' but also haven't yet tried a flavour that I didn't like. No stickiness, no trembly guts and horrid burps, no dry sugary mouth... whilst still giving enough boost to cope with any run. I'll run exclusively with Tailwind for up to half marathon distances (one stickpack does the trick) and add in a flapjack or something for longer runs.
Thanks Tailwind for a great product that people without a sweet tooth can enjoy!

It is also important for the uptake of nutrients such hexose (carbohydrate) and amino acids (protein).

During extended periods of exercise it is important that sodium levels are replenished. As the bodies sodium concentration falls ECF (extracellular fluid) falls which can have detrimental effects to the bodies cells. Physiologically this will present as dizziness and faintness.

 

Sodium Citrate: Stops Cramps

Sodium citrate is added to the Tailwind Nutrition products to act as a pH regulator. When the muscles are working for extended periods of time, muscle pH will decrease and cramps take effect. The role of sodium citrate is to delay the effects of this lowering pH and prevent the build up of lactic acid in the athletes muscles to help reduce cramps and allow them to run, cycle or row for longer.

 

Potassium: Stops Muscle Weakness

Potassium is essential for the acid-base regulation and to maintain the electrophysiology of nerves and muscles. A deficiency in potassium (caused by prolonged sweating during physical activity) can alter the electrophysiological characteristics of cell membranes causing weakness of the skeletal muscles.

 

Carbohydrates and sugar (present as glucose and sucrose): Energy Provider

Sugars and soluble carbohydrates are fundamental for providing energy for the maintenance of life. During exercise sugar in its simplest form of glucose is fundamental for the ease of metabolism into expendable energy.

 

Calcium: Strong bones and Muscle contraction

Calciums primary role is structural, around 99% of calcium is found in bones and teeth. A prolonged calcium deficiency will increase the risk of low bone mineral density and stress fractures in athletes. It is also an essential mineral for muscle function and contraction as well as being essential for synthesis and breakdown of glycogen fuel stores in your muscles.

 

Magnesium: Relaxes Muscles

Magnesium works closely with calcium, while calcium is important for the contraction of your muscles, magnesium helps them relax. Therefore, it is clear how important the combination of both calcium and magnesium is for healthy muscle function. 

Dextrose (Glucose), Sucrose, Sodium Citrate, Sea Salt, Citric Acid, Organic Flavour, Potassium Chloride, Calcium Carbonate, Magnesium Citrate and the caffeinated flavours (Raspberry Buzz, Tropical Buzz and Green Tea Buzz)  contain anhydrous caffeine (70mg in a 2 serving stickpack).

Stick pack orange

First tim user of tailwind, so little apprehensive. Arrived quickly with a nice personal note enclosed.
It comes as powder form and mixed very easily with just a couple of shakes, no real smell to it and it tasted nice with a good consistency, not sticky. The sachet was easy to open.
It used one sachet mixed with 700ml water on a 2hr ride, no gut issues and didn't feel hungry or thirsty.
Further trials needed before I use for endurance event, but great at the moment.

This stuff is fantastic, gels, blocks or anything like that turns my stomach on long runs. And after about 20 miles my stomach just won't keep down food. I use this stuff from the very start of my long runs or races. And sip the whole way through. No upset stomach or bonking. Definitely going to use this from now on. Pity I only found out about it not so long ago.

Having read about Tailwind Nutrition online I was sceptical about it's effectiveness, I find it difficult to fuel whilst taking part in Ironman Triathlons with the usual Stomach issues etc I have bonked numerous times over the last few seasons and decided it was worth a shot ........ Wow ...... Completed a 6 hour endurance ride on Nothing but Tailwind and still had the energy to complete a 6 mile Run after which I don't think I've ever felt especially at a 10k pace (45 mins) I didn't eat prior to the ride and this was my first to.e using the product -no stomach issues , the flavours were great and it was effortless .... no more excuses and hopefully come September a New PB at Ironman Wales ...... Kudos to Tailwind and the Personalised note in the box was a nice touch

I purchased a multipack of Tailwind on the recommendation of fellow competitors in an upcoming ultras. I normally use gels in my longer training runs and races but find them a bit sickly after a while and sometimes experience peaks and dips in energy.
I tried the green tea caffeine buzz on an 18 miler last weekend and was pleased to find one sachet in 500ml water kept me going through it. The taste was pleasant although I had a sip of plain water after drinking Tailwind each time.
Great product and great service and I'll definitely be ordering more

Monday, 7 August 2017  |  Gary

I received this product quickly, with a personalised note which was really nice and I hope as the company grows the guys can manage to keep this wee touch going! Stands you out! Standard size really for the individual servings so all good there. I put two sachets in 1.5l water,flavours were decent and not too sweet or sickly! My issue was that I tried this for the first time in an event instead of training and was so scared of running out of fuel because these sachets wouldn't be enough that I added some gels along the way and loads of food. I felt too full up to run. On the plus I never felt empty at any time but I overdid it. Next time I will trust the guys and only use this product as they recommend! Great value for money too. Will absolutely be ordering again. Thanks a lot for your excellent customer service and product-first class

Monday, 7 August 2017  |  Oliver

I ran a 50k in California yesterday and gave Tailwind a proper try. I used nothing else and was well-impressed overall.The course was totally runnable which always puts a bit more stress on getting food in, and hot.

In 4.5 hours I used 5 of the 200 calorie sachets (2 neutral, 2 orange and a lemon). I chucked maybe half a 500ml flask at the last aid station but reckon I got at least 900 calories down my next during the race.

I've been using Tailwind now for a few years. I've tried others. But they just don't work as well. Its easy to consume, tastes great even after drinking it for 30hrs plus (Lakeland 100) And simply helps you maintain your energy levels when eating on the longer events can become hard.

Tailwind was recommended to me by another runner. I wondered if it would be too late to trial for my 32 mile RAT run in a couple of weeks. Tried it on a 16 mile training run on Sunday and was really happy. Mixed easy, tasted great (quite subtle tastes) and it just kept me going. Great service and I just loved the personalised note.

Tailwind not windytail...
Tuesday, 1 August 2017  |  Jez

Im an unfit 40 year old that decided to get fit and set a goal of cycling 180miles over 2 days for charity. I read a lot about eating and what to eat and glucose boosters. Off i set about training. I couldn't work out why i was getting so much gut pain thought it was just belly fat complaining and sorry to say but cycling behind me wouldn't have been pleasant. The glucose drinks were terrible, thought I was having a heart attack on one ride turned out to be sever indigestion put down to glucose boosters! (Which taste rank as well. )

Speaking to a mate who does crazy running across the Sarah and he said forget flapjacks & glucose boosters and use tailwind. Sceptical I gave it a go.

Off I set on the training ride my first 100miles on nothing but tailwind, the difference was night and day, zero stomach pains, zero wind, zero indigestion and more than enough energy. Seriously i cant describe just how good I felt all the way through. The main cycle event was incredible and used tailwind all the way, there were people struggling on the cycle so I gave out a couple of sachets the turnaround in them was insane from totally 'had it' to a spring in their peddles. Magic elixir? Maybe just maybe!

Honestly as you can tell im no superhero, get this, trust it, love it. You wont be disappointed get rid of all that other rubbish.

Would I order again? Just have ready for my first sportive

Tuesday, 1 August 2017  |  Gareth

Used tail wind 3 times now first on a trail 10 miler in hot conditions. Didnt take any other calories with me and it did just fine as expected as i was only out a hour and a half but thought id try it on a shorter run to make sure i was close to home in worse case situation it turned my stomach all worked out fine.
Second time was on a trail marathon in bad weather with plenty of climbing i was out for 5 hours and I took 3 600 ml bottles of tail wind and i was a bit sceptical about tail wind being the only fuel you needed all day. I went for 3 hours and nearly 2 bottles in I got a little rumble in my stomach so weather its just habit of taking in food calories I stopped and only took on a small 30g chiacharge bar and i finished the run off an tailwind alone. I was very suprised that that was the only food calories I took on board over the full 5 hours. The very next day I used tailwind on the Joss Naylor Challenge Leg 2 Supporting a local runner I did the out and back on the leg which was 13 miles I did this with two 600 ml bottles.

All in all its a great product and look forward to using it again.

I will most certainly be using it for the support of my support leg of bob graham round in two weeks times and my own ultra challenge in October.

Tuesday, 25 July 2017  |  Sam

As someone with not the strongest stomach I've had a few issues with gels in longer races, and Tailwind has proven to be an excellent alternative. My only issue is the flavour is a little strong for me, so I end up making a weaker solution of half a sachet to 500ml of water (about what I drink per hour), which isn't quite enough calories for me so I do still supplement this with the odd gel, but nearly as many as I'd been using previously.

I used the stickpacks for a race on Sunday. It was only a 16 miler but had 2,000 feet of hills to bounce over around Bath. Tailwind sustained me very well, I didn't need extra sugar or drinks in the race which I'm usually diving into and it saved me some time as I didn't need to stop at aid stations. So far so good. I'm looking forward to trying these in my next 50k race

Multipack takes the pain out of choosing..
Thursday, 20 July 2017  |  Abi

I recently ran Race to the Stones, using Tailwind for the first time. Having heard of the brand from Dan Lawson, I went on the website and had a read.

As someone with gastro problems, I was particularly keen on the 'no gut bomb' claim, and as a hater of gels, the prospect of a drink containing everything you need in drink form really appealed- particularly the 'naked' flavour- which is a refreshing change to the norm.

Come race day- I was excited to set off with my tailwind and had planned my nutrition strategy. All went well to 25k until sadly I got my tummy problems again and spent the rest of the race on diarolyte in one bottle and tailwind in the other..

So I can't give a proper feedback until I've tried it properly and my tummy's not let me down, but I loved the taste (mandarin good too) love the hype, packaging was easy and hand written good luck note a nice touch, and postage and packing spot on!

Have Salisbury 50km next month, so hoping to use my remaining packs then and to give a better review after that.. impressed with what I had so far though!

Cheers tailwind

Wednesday, 19 July 2017  |  Jack

Well, I gave Tailwind a whirl after unsatisfactory trials with gels (which were sticky, bad tasting and upset the old digestive system) and thus far I'm really pleased.

Tastes are more subtle than your average sports drink, and didn't coat the mouth as some do. Kept me energised and hydrated on my Sunday long run - going to work into my running schedule and use in marathon in September. Didn't feel the need to gorge on drink/food post-run, which is a good sign.

I suppose if there's a single downside, it's that the nature of powders means you've got to either pre-load bottles you intend to carry or get good at putting powder in course water. This is less of an issue at ultra events.

'think Tailwind makes a real difference..
Monday, 17 July 2017  |  Aileen

Regardless of how much Ive tried tinkering with diet / nutrition I'd been prone to horrible hypos. I had bloods taken & these don't indicate a(ny) blood sugar problem but every now & again I'd hit a sudden onset hypo wall; horrible.
I ordered Tailwind as an experiment really, to try to deal with this. And so far - a couple of trial runs in - it's working & has become key to my wee bit of 'kit' needed for long runs. The troops at Tailwind advised 'little & often' - I make sure to have a slug @ every km & that seems to work for me. I'm not fussed on the taste - feels very much like sugars & salts as opposed to 'lemon' or 'berry' or whatever, but I can live with that. I'm v sure it's steadying my levels & enabling me to keep plodding on (for I am v much a 'plodder' For anyone experiencing any kind of body turbulence, Id recommend you give it a go.

Perfect for the long run drop bag
Sunday, 16 July 2017  |  Derek

I ran my first 40 mile ultra on Saturday and swithered about what to put in my drop bags. Would Tailwind be enough? In the end I decided best to be cautious so I included jelly babies, banana and a sandwich. After the first 10 miles on nothing but Tailwind I had no hunger pangs so decided to ditch the food. Apart from additional water for hydration, Tailwind got me through the 40 miles perfectly. Having a stick pack in each drop bag made everything so much easier.
Thank you for an amazing product.

I used the Tailwind 2 Serving Stickpacks in my Camelbak for the Velathon 110 cycle ride in Wales and found them to be exactly what I was looking for in a straight forward single source solution for electrolytes and nutrition. Tailwind delivered all of this without any drawbacks. The best thing I have now is the peace of mind it will deliver again.
I would certainly recommend to give this a try it's a step up from multiple forms bars gels etc.

I have really struggled with my nutrition on both ultras and marathons. Couldn't stomach gels and found solid foods really hard to eat. Bought these after reading the reviews and have tried them on a couple of runs. Really impressed with the flavour and my stomach coped with no problems.

Will be using them for the upcoming Scott Snowdonia trail marathon in a couple of weeks and in September I will use them on the Ultra tour of Snowdonia.

The first time I tried a gel was also my last - not keen to repeat the experience! - so when a friend recommended Tailwind I cautiously gave it a go.
I am a *total* convert and now use it on all my long runs. I hate overly sweet typical sports nutrition so Tailwind is really a game changer. I love the Naked 'flavour' but also haven't yet tried a flavour that I didn't like. No stickiness, no trembly guts and horrid burps, no dry sugary mouth... whilst still giving enough boost to cope with any run. I'll run exclusively with Tailwind for up to half marathon distances (one stickpack does the trick) and add in a flapjack or something for longer runs.
Thanks Tailwind for a great product that people without a sweet tooth can enjoy!
