Volunteers wanted!

We are putting the call out for volunteers to assist with the Sunshine Coast event.

If you are a competitor and your friends or partner are coming along to support you, why not ask them to volunteer. They get a free shirt, cap, free food and drink and a big hug from the race director. Their day could consist of helping with such tasks as manning a checkpoint, acting as a course marshal, or a variety of other tasks.

A Great Event for a Great Cause

Jabulani Challenge
Saturday 8th April 2017
Ku-Ring-Gai Chase National Park, NSW

Taking in the highlights of the Ku-Ring-Gai Chase National Park with the Start and Finish line at the beautiful and historic Bobbin Head, this is an event not to be missed. Featuring stunning scenery, a couple of short sharp hills to keep you honest but also some of the best trails in Sydney, the Jabulani Challenge has it all. With three distances available (45km, 22km & 12km) and an open and family friendly event centre this is one trail run you can bring the whole tribe along too.

The other great thing about the Jabulani Challenge is not only is it an awesome trail running event it also helps raise money for a great cause, namely the Stellenbosch Community Development Programme which helps underprivileged children in Africa. Money raised from the Jabulani Challenge last year helped the Stellenbosch Community Development Programme assist and feed over 1,800 kids a day throughout 2016.

The event Sold Out last year. This year it is already two-thirds full so NOW is the time to secure your entry.

Have You Considered Your Race Nutrition Strategy?

Whether you’re training for an adventure race, obstacle course race, mountain biking or trail running event, it’s important to think about how you’re going to fuel yourself on the day AND actually practice your race nutrition strategy during training.

This might be the last of your worries, considering you’ve only just plucked up the courage to enter the race and you’re contemplating how to train for it, but this is the perfect time to think race nutrition! Why? So you can avoid the common pitfalls of getting it wrong on race day.

During these events we are exerting ourselves and using a stack of calories for energy. Our bodies primarily use the easiest source of energy which comes from carbohydrates and the resulting glycogen (instead of fat or protein macronutrients), so this is the go-to source in a race. The trouble is that when our body uses up our stores of carbohydrates, our bodies have a ‘freak out’ because it’s now running on empty. This is also known as ‘hitting the wall’ or ‘bonking’ and can mean that you don’t have enough energy to finish the race or if you do manage to do so, you can get quite sick and encounter dehydration, weakness, fogginess, fatigue even vomiting.

To combat this situation, which many of us may have probably encountered in the past, we need to ensure our carbohydrate stores are topped up prior and also have a plan of what and when we are going to eat and drink during the race. In addition, you need to practice using the nutrition you plan to use in the race during training so that you can determine if it works for you and your body. Don’t leave it till race day to try a new sports drink, food or energy gel as everyone’s body reacts differently to different products. You don’t want to be that person doubled over with stomach cramps and gastrointestinal issues. It’s not pretty.
