Great taste/amazing energy

I was not expecting the awesome flavor of this product! It's not like most where isn't not quite as thirst quenching as water it is amazing and come with a clean tummy! Great product will continue to use as I start ironman training

Thankyou so much for my delivery which came the day before my event , I know it was in the hands of the postal service but still it arrived !
That reminds me to order a few days before , not the day before.
The product itself I can't fault , I mixed 2 scoops per 300ml of water for a stronger drink as I needed to get calories in being a heavy runner (110kg)
No stomach issues , and managed a faster marathon time with less walk breaks

First time with multi serving bag (I've used stick-packs up until now to find my favourite flavours - all of them!) Previously I've used the stick packs to get dialled in. I tend to use 3 stickpacks in 2.5l water in my camelbak for a 3hr run, seems to keep me happy/strong. My first trail marathon looms, and I'm gonna shove in a green tea caffeine hit for the last 10K! Great personalised customer service from the team too - always a cheery note of encouragement with your order, which is a lovely touch.

How is it that something so simple is this good. Easy to use, pleasant taste, great selection in the mixed pack, but above all has to be the immediate noticeable difference when used during exercise. Energy levels up, endurance up, confidence up

On taking the plunge and entering the UT 55k next year, i was looking for something else apart from the Clif bars and water I've been using up to now. The 2 serving stick packs have been great for the 2x500ml bottles I carry and have seen me through my normal long training run (20miles/4 hrs). As I should be drinking at least 1.5ltrs to get the calories for that length of time, I'm going to try 3 scoops per bottle on my next day out. The only downside I have found is that the 2 serving stick packs are hard to open fully as when you tear along the perforations, the pack is still sealed, requiring scissors to open the rest. Okay in the kitchen but not at a feed station. Apart from that, they have been great so far.
Wanted to try something new

Brilliant service from Tailwind. My order arrived the day after I ordered. Still early days, but I tried it for the first time on an 11 mile run with no nausea & no stomach problems. I mixed 2/3 of a stick pack with 400ml of water & that was just enough to have a sip every half a mile or so. Last 2 miles were my quickest, so a good run! I really struggle to eat gels or solid food while running so Iím hoping this will see me through my second half marathon in November & my first full Marathon in May!

Used before a 10k and got me through nicely. No after taste, no heaviness in your stomach. Look forward to using on longer runs and sipping as I go for best edge.

I used tailwind for first time on sunday , I'd had little food before hand so when I set off up the fell I felt a little jaded straight away but really that's what I wanted do I could see what it's like from a low ebb
I started sipping from the off and within 10 mins or so felt relaxed and my normal running self the run was only 9mile with 2000ft of climb but I felt so hydrated and energetic at end of run (1 stick only ) can't wait to try out on bob graham recces and TDEH
Great service, great product.

The multi-serve bag makes it much easier to mix Tailwind to your desired strength than the stick packs, however I'd recommend trying the stick packs first to find the flavour(s) that suits you.
Have been using Tailwind for a couple of months now without any of the stomach issues I've suffered with gels.
Tuesday, 17 October 2017 | Gemma
An excellent buff. Not too thick, great fabric and design good for multiple uses and will be fab in the cold weather. For now useful as sweat band
Thanks for this!!!
Just what Iíve been looking for

Finally a product I can take on my long runs that doesnít give me a dodgy tummy. Iíve always struggled to take on enough nutrition especially during long runs over 18 miles. This has left me in a bad way at the end of marathons where Iím usually sick to my stomach and dizzy. Tailwind has helped me greatly to stabilize my intake so I can finish stronger. Thank you for this product.

I found the neckwarmer to be of high quality and holds its shape after use and washing. Good product. Would recommend to others

Great flavor so far no cramps will use on my upcoming Birmingham International Marathon.
Also + is Tailwind is American brand love to support my country!

Good solid trucker cap, would of been better if it was BOCO designed!

Been using Tailwind for more or less a year now and my love affair continues ... Seen me through multi day jungle races, 100 milers, 50 milers and many long runs. I've said it before but for me the strength is how the "small sips, often" just seem to smooth things out. I keep handing the sachets out to friends so this time I have gone for the large 50 serving multipack to keep it to myself!

Iíve been a runner for years and like a lot of runners fuel has been an issue. If a run hasnít gone well guaranteed itís been down to a big dip in energy which has left me feeling weak or nauseous or Iíve indulged in mid run refuelling which has left me, you guessed it, nauseous. After hearing about Tailwind from ultra running buddies I thought Iíd give it a go and I am delighted to say the difference it has made to my long runs is remarkable. I can refuel in the run easily, wth all the benefits and non of the unpleasant side effects. Itís easy to mix, easy to digest and keeps me going. I remain fuelled up throughout my run without the need for any additional snacks. And as for the nausea, not a problem at all. My stomach feels spot on throughout. I honestly am totally converted to Tailwind and will certainly be packing it for the Manchester Half Marathon this month.

Using tailwind now for 6 weeks for swimming, cycling and running , found an improvement in endurance levels through out , cut out gels from training completely. I will continue to use tailwind for all training sessions .
Tuesday, 10 October 2017 | Debbie
A lot of running friends were raving about Tailwind for their long runs and as I did not get on with gels from other companies wanted to try the Tailwind stick packs. First trial run today and all good, no nausea. Will definitely be using again. Prompt and personalised service thank you.

I have just completed the gower 50 miler. I was on tailwind the whole race which took me 12 hours to complete. This product is amazing. It tastes amazing. No stomach problems at all and I felt hydrated during the whole race. I would recommend tailwind to anybody who is in to there running. You will not try anything else after you try this product.
Fantastic Service and Product

I have Tailwind used during long training runs and for two marathons (London 2017 and Chester 2017) and canít rate it highly enough.
Itís simple to use, even mid run and the formula doesnít give me any unwanted side effects.
Other products left me nauseous or needing water as well but Tailwind on its own is enough. No need for any other food or drink.
I have already recommended Tailwind to other runners and they have all been as equally impressed as I am.

Just used for IM Barcelona.
6 scoops in 2 bottles. Drank 1/3rd of a bottle per hour supplemented with water from aid stations. worked a treat!!! nothing else needed.
I like the fact that the flavours are not too overpowering and sickly like a lot of energy products.
topped off with great service

I've always (30 years) had a problem tolerating fluids. I've used Tailwind for about 8 months now and not had a problem yet. I can't recommend it highly enough!!

I started using Tailwind Raspberry Fizz with Caffeine, earlier this year, at the recommendation of a friend. It hits the spot throughout - no gut problems and I remain well hydrated and fuelled throughout marathons, ultras and heavy and long run training days. No need for gels or other nibbles - its all in here!

Not only is the product good and tasty , it is really a cost effective way of buying tailwind . I will continue to mix my orders up with the small sticks and the multi packs ...Thanks again Mike and thanks for the nice personal note re my iron man completion . Made my day that note

Bought some tailwind after seeing it on a YouTube video being used for a 50mile race and it was very much recommended. I had a quick look into it and thought I would give it a try. It seemed to work really well for me as I had a mountain marathon recently and only used 3 gels and a chocolate bar along with the tail wind! It was very easy on the stomach and had no issues at all. For me it's a wee bit of a salty taste but the flavour counters that well. I will definitely be buying more and certainly be recommending it to others. Thanks for a quality and very friendly service too.

You said it wouldn't give me the gut bomb and I'm happy to say it didn't. Flavour is good not too sickly over time. The handwritten note with the delivery was a nice touch. You have a new long term customer!
Tuesday, 3 October 2017 | Michael
I bought Tailwind's product after a recommendedation from a friend. The service was very prompt .
After using gels and not really getting on with them tailwind was a revelation! So easy to digest and no gi issues ... brilliant.

Early days but so far it ticks all the boxes. Great taste, no dodgy stomach cramps and felt strong all the way round my last 2 x 16 mile training runs. Bring on the Marathonin 2 weeks time 🏃🏃🏃🏃
Excellent product and service
Monday, 2 October 2017 | Jenny
First time ordering and using this product. Found the service fantastic. Product arrived on the day promised. Used it a couple of times for long runs. Found it fantastic. No need for gels or extra water and no tummy issues at all. Lovely personal message wishing me luck on my Half Marathon and an email coming up to the Half wishing me luck again. Brilliant experience. Totally recommend it and will be using it again.
Monday, 2 October 2017 | Teresa
This product is just simply the best out there. Chuck away the gels, and any other stuff you normally take, coz you simply don't need them.
Orange is my fav but they're all great.
Customer service is second to none in my opinion.
Keep it up guys and I won't be going anywhere else!
Monday, 2 October 2017 | Keith
This is my first order with Tailwind and was very impressed with the service. Super fast delivery and a personal message inside wishing me luck on my 50 mile ultra.
I've only used Tailwind once on a 13 mile run so looking forward to see how it goes on the 50, and will be leaving another review next week.
Sunday, 1 October 2017 | James
I tried various flavours with the trial pack and now have my favourites......used it to support me on the Essex 100 (50 Mile option) and it worked well.
Recommend the sachets to work out what flavours you like / don't like then ďgo bulkĒ.
New favourite flavour, green tea
Saturday, 30 September 2017 | Joseph
I used the green tea caffeinated flavour recently on a 75 mile bike ride and it was great, the flavour may be my new favourite. No stomach issues like i find with gels, and felt good throughout. Will certainly be buying this one again
Saturday, 30 September 2017 | Melvyn
Tried the tester sticks on short runs to see how it felt on the stomach and then ordered a larger bag of the berry flavour
I ran a training marathon first half fasted then used the tailwind and felt good at the end
Looking forward to using this on the white rose ultra

Used for the whole UKTM season. Not gut issues and great for keeping on the move. It was cheaper to buy direct here and pay for next day delivery than to buy on A*@z0n. Got a personalised post card wishing me luck at World's Toughest Mudder in Nov. Great product, GREAT service!!!
Thursday, 28 September 2017 | Hazel
Bought on a whim. Cannot fault the service, received in 2 days. The hand written note, was full of love and support. I am sure that between us. I will get my PB (lol) in my 1st ever Half Marathon in Glasgow. Thank you. xx

Having constantly searched for product to keep me both fed and hydrated during Ironman events I came across Tailwind via a customer of my shop, Base2Race in Dublin. I ordered the Raspberry Fizz with caffeine and the standard lemon drink and received it within a couple of days, nicely personalised and with a hand written note from the guys which is a great touch. I loaded up for a long 5 hour bik ride and was oth delighted and amazed by the results.... never felt the pangs of hunger and energy levels were perfect. As I write this I am in Lanzarote for a weeks training and my 6 hour bike yesterday in the heat and wind wind that only this island can throw at you was entirely fueled by a mix of both drinks. I did have to take on extra water but kept to the appropriate leeks in my fuel otters and am delighted to report that this is the way forward for me and without doubt will be fuelling me come Novembers ace. Top product with top service. Who could ask for more!

I used the tailwind sticks on the recent Vťlo Birmingham. The sticks were just the right size to conveniently fit in my jersey and pop in my bottles when I topped up at a water station.
I was able to sip away at tailwind conveniently where before I would have been faffing around trying to chuck gels down my throat. I didn't experience any hunger or 'bonk' and there was none of the sickness feeling normally associated with gels.
The added bonus was getting the handwritten postcard and the email wishing me good luck on my event, great customer service
Monday, 25 September 2017 | Mark
I love this stuff ! It's seen me through everything from road marathons right up to my first 100 miler this year,flavoir is spot on and its got everything in it to see me through,each time,every time !!
Monday, 25 September 2017 | Geoff
Used Tailwind for this awesome 24hr event, used 2 scoops in 500ml water every 10k and managed to run 100km with no gut problems or cramping, I had never ran more than a Marathon before and felt great. Fantastic product can't recommend it highly enough!
Monday, 25 September 2017 | Bec
I was recommended this product after being unable to eat whilst out running and gels were a no-no too. I have not looked back! Have just got a PB on a half using only TailWind. Fantastic product! Cannot stop recommending it to everyone. I love the little personal note you get with the order too - great touch!
Sunday, 24 September 2017 | Laurence
I had ordered from a major online retailer, who then couldn't deliver in time for my ultra race. I contacted Tailwind direct who delivered the next day to my hotel so it was there before me!!!
In addition Tailwind worked as promised on the day, didn't use my normal gels and none of my usual stomach problems. Great product for me.
Saturday, 23 September 2017 | Steve
Still to be tested over longer distances (20m+) but nice n light and didn't need gels as an added supplement. Big hearty thumbs up!
Friday, 22 September 2017 | Matt
Did a 30km run on Tuesday and this was all I took! I didn't experience any hunger or dehydration at all. No 'bonk', or best of all, no GI distress, really kind on the stomach. Going to stick with this. The personal touch is great as well!
Thursday, 21 September 2017 | Stewart
I bought this on a friends recommendation for long distance running and have found it excellent. It maintains energy and hydration at the end of the runs where I had previously been struggling allowing me to run stronger for longer.
Wednesday, 20 September 2017 | Sander
Did a 3h run here with Tailwind and no gels at all. Worked great! Itís a bit getting used to, to drink more and more often. It seems that your hydration flasks wonít get sticky or dirty on the inside. I hope Tailwind will get directly available in Holland (is now via the UK).
Wednesday, 20 September 2017 | Alexis
Tidied out 2 new soft flasks with Tailwinds on a 20 mile run. The flasks work well and collapse down as the liquid goes down. Worth a try an an alternative to a plastic bottle .
