On-course nutrition and hydration

Are you ready for Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend? We’re excited to announce that Xact Energy Bars will be available on course again this year! Enjoy and energize in strawberry, orange, and apricot (and in limited supply E-Beet and Blackcurrant) to help fuel your run! But, did you know that using these products before race day can help you perform at your best?

Training your digestive system is an essential part of race preparation, and Xact Nutrition can help. By using Xact Energy bars during your training runs, you can train your body to tolerate and absorb the nutrients you need to power through the race.

Xact Energy Bars are designed to be easy to digest, provide sustained energy, and are made with high-quality, all-natural, plant-based, and gluten-free ingredients. Whether you’re running the 10k, half marathon, or full marathon, Xact Nutrition energy bars can help you reach the finish line.

And here’s some great news for the environment: Xact packaging is recyclable! Toss yours in the recycling bin after your training run or race.

So, what are you waiting for? Start incorporating Xact Energy bars into your training runs today by purchasing Xact Energy bars through the Run Ottawa store.

Don’t forget to look for strawberry, orange and apricot (and a limited supply of E-Beet and Blackcurrent) Xact Energy bars on course for an extra boost of energy when you need it most.

Good luck and happy training!
