    Hey everyone, I’m wondering about foods that people are eating during long runs? This is my first venture into ultrarunning- I’m doing Luke’s 50k plan for a R2R Grand Canyon run this fall. However, I come from a long background of 15+ years climbing, biking, backpacking. I feel pretty good about my nutrition strategies for something like a 20 pitch alpine climb, but have never done a long run before. I am also very well versed in bars, gels, and drink mixes.

    So, What solid foods have worked for ya’ll during longer running events/ unsupported races?

    I am by no means an ultra runner but I distinctly recall watching Gary Robbins in the Barkley Marathons eating a full on burger (ketchup & mustard?? forget…)

    I thought it was hilarious, here’s the video, entertaining throughout (IMO)
