spirit of kepler award

Spirit of kepler award

For 2015 we have started a new award inspired by long standing Kepler Challenge committee member, Caroline Carter who tragically died of cancer this year.

The award will be given to a runner or volunteer who has shown outstanding Kepler Spirit, be it going the extra extra mile for someone, or showing exceptional enthusiasm.

The recipient will be chosen from stories and anecdotes given to the committee.

Some GU Guidelines

GU nutrition plan recommendations

Taking on enough fuel and keeping well hydrated are key components to a successful (and enjoyable) race. When determining an appropriate nutrition plan, it is of utmost importance to test what you are going to consume on race day during your training. This applies equally to EVERYTHING you will eat and drink. Like clothing and equipment, race day is not the time to try new things!

GU have come up with some GU nutrition guidelines for runners - well worth a read!
