Never used Tailwind before so broke every marathon rule in the book by not testing them before running the 87km of the Comrades marathon. Tailwind worked a treat, no stomach issues and felt fantastic and really strong for the whole race and the good thing is I didn't take anything else. This batch I just bought is for Comrades and to share out with some running from my club.
Has transformed my ultrarunning

I've had a problem in every ultra I've ever run, in that I cannot eat on a long run, so on anything longer than 5 or 6 hours just the sight of food makes me feel ill, leading to a total bonk long before the end of the event.
I had thought that this was just par for the course for long distance events but after a friend introduced me to tailwind everything has been transformed.
I first used it during the Limestone Way Ultra where I knew the aid stations would be every 2 hours or so - so with 2x 500ml bottles I had one sachet per bottle and drank 1 each hour. The event took 8 hours and I never had a problem, never a loss of energy, no stomach issues and I finished feeling like I could keep going.
I ate maybe 2 halves of banana, half an orange and a handful of crisps during the 8 hours.
I've used tailwind in every event and long training run since and I wouldn't use anything else - my stomach problems and hunger knocks are (so far) a thing of the past. I can't recommend highly enough.
Also I love the personal touch, the messages in the orders, the emails before the events, and even emails after congratulating me on my time (which someone has had to look up).

I have just started using Tailwind for long distance triathlon and it's working well so far, no stomach issues and energy levels good. Great customer service too.

I was given a tailwind stickpack to try by a fellow runner because I happened to mention I was having trouble fuelling on a long training run. Iíve entered my first ultra at the end of this month and am trying hard to getting my fuelling on point. I believe that with the introduction of Tailwind into my long training runs along with eating what works for me too Iíve at last sussed it! I purchased the Tailwind starter pack, love the variety of flavours, prompt delivery, well packaged and loved the postcard touch. I have and will continue to recommend Tailwind to friends and relatives as I believe it rocks!!💪🏼🏃🏻♀️😁

I was pleasantly surprised at how nutty this was, it tastes delicious, and doesn't have a funny after taste and isn't grainy. Unlike some recovery powdered drinks it mixes really well. I have had it both mixed with water and with milk. I will definitely be getting more.

I tried this as I struggle to eat after any distance over 20miles. I ran my 2nd marathon yesterday & I made up the rebuild once finished,I didn't get my usual nausea & I've no doubt that using this product has helped my post race recovery! Will definitely use again,thanks tailwind

Great sachets that taste really good. I've tried lots of different brands over the years but have to say that the Tailwind sachets are proving to be excellent. Great service, nice note inside the box wishing me well in my training.
