Fueling The Austin Marathon - Officially

Fueling The Austin Marathon - Officially

For nearly the last decade, Austin has been where we, as a team, have grown and expanded. Random as it seems from our humble beginnings in Pennsylvania, Austin has become our home, and damn, we are proud of that.

In 2016, our founder, Nick Bare, completed his first 26.2 by crossing the finish line of the Austin Marathon. Since then, Nick and our team have toed the starting line in front of the state capital every February to give that course hell.

At the 2025 Austin Marathon, we will fuel the city - officially. BPN will be the on-course gel and hydration sponsor to fuel your performance. All racers will have access to our Go Gels and Electrolytes at each aid station during the race.

We are obsessed with providing athletes with the highest-quality fuel, and it is our honor to sponsor the Austin Marathon in 2025.

As excited as we are to equip every racer with on-course fuel, we know your training determines whether you achieve your race day goals. Below are 3 free resources to help you as you train for the Austin Marathon.

FUEL FOR TRAINING

Go Gel

The Go Gel is our take on an endurance gel. Each gel contains 24 grams of carbohydrates and 110 mg of sodium per gel. It is a whole-food, simple-ingredient product that is easily digestible, convenient to carry, and fast to consume.

How to use: Consume a Go Gel 15 minutes before the race. During a race, we recommend 1 Go Gel every 30-45 minutes.

Electrolytes

Our electrolytes contain 500mg of sodium per serving with a fully loaded electrolyte profile. Consuming electrolytes is critical to maintaining proper hydration levels and avoiding dehydration symptoms, especially during the day when it’s hot and sunny.

How to use: Mix 1-2 servings of our electrolytes in 12-16 ones of water and consume throughout the entire effort. As a baseline starter - expect to lose about 1,000mg of sodium per hour of running. This varies from person to person, but you should replace what you lose between your food sources and electrolyte powder during the race.

G.1.M Sport

We created G.1.M Sport to be a fast-acting, easily digestible carbohydrate powder with a fully loaded dose of electrolytes. Think of this as your fuel base. Each serving contains 20 grams of carbohydrates and 350 mg of sodium. The carbohydrates will ensure you have the energy required to cover the distance and maintain intensity. The electrolytes will help avoid dehydration and cramps and replace what is lost through sweat.

How to use: Mix 1-2 servings (scoops) in 15-20 ounces of water and consume before or during your run. The carbohydrate used in G.1.M Sport is called Cluster Dextrin and is very easy on the stomach, so you can drink it right before your run or gently sip it during your segment.

RACE DAY FUEL GUIDE

On race day, take out the guesswork with our fuel guide. Below is a simple guide to how we approach fueling on race day, regardless of the distance or running pace.  

Remember, fueling your body during the race can be the difference between you achieving your goal and not.
