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.

Tailwind Challenge pack
Sunday, 4 April 2021  | 

Great refreshing taste and ideal to ditch the weight of now unnecessary gels/snacks rattling round in my pack! Started off on 2 scoops/500ml but planning on trying 3 scoops on longer runs.

Sustained Wellness during runs...
Monday, 1 March 2021  | 

Really enjoyed my experience during my first two months using Tailwind. I found that sipping little and often during anything above 90 mins runs kept my mouth feeling fresh and my body feeling hydrated with less fatigue afterwards.

I didn’t get that slight short lived ‘boost’ you get from gels because you don’t flag as this is a more sustained and consistent way of fuelling. ‘Sustained wellness’ is the only way I can describe it - it left me to focus on what I CAN do rather than watching out for the warning signs of needing fuel.

Friday, 10 January 2020  | 

Tailwind was recommended by a friend and I now use it for most events and long training sessions. Always suffered with a sensitive stomach when running with gels or normal food but i get no bad effects with Tailwind. Running Marathons I used to hit the wall about mile 20 but managed straight through when using Tailwind. Cant recommend Tailwind enough.

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!

CAFFEINATED FLAVOUR INGREDIENTS (RASPBERRY BUZZ, TROPICAL BUZZ, GREEN TEA BUZZ)

WARNING: Contains Caffeine. Not suitable for children or pregnant women. (Caffeine 130mg/100g)

Dextrose (Glucose), Sucrose, Sodium Citrate, Sea Salt, Citric Acid, Organic Flavour, Potassium Chloride, Calcium Carbonate, Magnesium Citrate and organic caffeine (70mg in a 2 serving stickpack).

Each scoop is 100 calories. (our stick packs contain 200 calories)

For endurance workouts, mix 2-3 scoops with 500 - 700ml of water per hour. Adjust to your personal calorie needs during training, using hunger as a guide. When it’s dialled 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.
