Take the Tailwind Challenge!

If you don't love it, we pay your entry fee.*

 

It's simple: if Tailwind doesn't make you stronger, happier, and less stressed during training and at your next event, we'll pay your entry fee!

Just order the Tailwind Challenge pack - four large 50 serving bags bundled at 15% off - train with it, race with it, and if it doesn't blow you away, mail us your race entry fee receipt for a refund.

 

I took the Tailwind Challenge in September 2014. Having got my initial Challenge order from Alex at Tailwind Nutrition Sweden I was so impressed with the product I asked Jenny and Jeff Vierling, the founders of Tailwind Nutrition, if I could distribute the product in the UK. Thanks to word of mouth, recommendations and continued growth in the US I was quickly able to set up UK distribution, adding myself to the group of successful distributors in Australia, New Zealand, Sweden, South Africa and Hong Kong.

Was recommended this as now training for my first 1/2 & full Marathon. I have a very sensitive stomach & I have tried many many things to no avail. I have used this for a few runs so far & not only does it taste good & not sickly sweet it gives me no stomach problems at all. Im sure its going to get me through both runs without problems. Also when I phoned up the staff were super friendly It has been a pleasure to do business with them & will certainly now be a regular customer

Tried Tailwind earlier in the year as an alternative to gels. 1st 50km ultra I got my fuelling strategy wrong but would've blown up without Tailwind on my back.
Recently completed my 2nd 50km ultra of the year & this went much better, as did my training - all fuelled by Tailwind - opted for all Naked variety as seems to best suit my tastebuds. Really can't recommend highly enough - gathering converts along the way too.
As an aside I love the personal feel to the service & the attention to detail from Tailwind. Pleasure to do business with

I moved over to using tailwind a few months back as I began to increase training for longer distances and ultras. This stuff is brilliant, I struggle to eat when running, and I haven't had any need to try since using this. The flavours are great, I use mandarin orange and raspberry buzz. No nausea or stomach issues. Don't get hungry, and no crash like with some gels. Even converted my other half, and he is a harsh critic! As such we have opted for the challenge pack, which is great value and they adapted the flavours to meet my request. Thank you!

Loved Tailwind for the last few years, dont run anything over a half marathon without it. So much so went to the Tailwind challenge, as the stuff doesnt go off either - incentive to enter more races!

Noticed the difference after 1st use 5*

The product mixes really easy and has a good taste. After sipping little and often throughout my long bike ride, I noticed the difference from just using gels and water. Great start, for what seems a great product

Early days yet, but looks promising!

I have only recently received my Tailwind products (approx one week ago), but have been using them daily as I up my cycling mileage as the weather improves and I will soon be heading outdoors. I have noticed I am able to operate at my FTP (Functional Threshold Power) much better and even on consecutive days, I am not suffering from fatigue like I used to. Easy to drink and pleasant tasting. First long ride is Sunday 24th March (108 mile Cheshire Cat Sportive) and looking to do it solely on Tailwind, so this will be a true test of its effectiveness.
