Nutrition for Runners Workshop

Are you preparing for a fall race and unsure how to fuel properly for performance?

Are you new to training and not sure what nutrition changes you should make?

Have you been training for a while now but not seeing the results you would like to?

If so, we have you covered!


Executed properly, sports nutrition can help promote optimal training and performance. Done incorrectly or ignored, it can derail training and hamper performance. Therefore, it’s important to have a fueling plan.

Do you have a training plan but you don’t have a nutrition plan??


In this workshop, we will cover :

  • Carbs, Protein, Fat – what they are, how much you need, and why they are important

  • Common nutrition myths debunked

  • Runner specific nutrition topics

    • Fueling before exercise

    • Fueling during exercise

    • Recovery after exercise

  • Q&A


You will also be calculating your own energy needs based on your current or predicted training schedule so you can have an idea of what your body needs for optimal performance and recovery.
