Running with e-Gel and e-Fuel
 

Jeff Rommel

"I broke the golden rule and tried e-Gel for the first time on race day. I ran the Houston Marathon and it was a great experience - no stomach issues and no muscle cramping. Water in my bottle and an e-Gel every hour got me through the race. I'm not the fastest runner, but I set a PR!" (...continue reading)

"I was running my best marathon ever in Detroit, had five miles to go and I took my e-Gel 100 yards before a water station. I got to the station and it was a bunch of guys handing out beer! GU and other gels are so thick that I would have needed water right away, but the e-Gel was so thin and easy to digest, I got through it just fine when I hit a water station about a mile later. Not only did I finally hit my sub-three hour dream, I hit 2:57!" (...continue reading)

"I used e-Gels exclusively and exactly as directed in training for the Lakefront Marathon. This was my fourth marathon and I did not expect to PR, but just to complete it well. With the help of e-Gels taken at miles 2, 7, 13, 18, and 23, I took 10 minutes off of my marathon time and never hit the 'wall' or cramped as I had done in previous events. Some guy laughed at me at the start asking why I had so many gels. I told him I had a plan and I was sticking to it. I'm pretty sure I passed him somewhere around mile 22." (...continue reading)

I trained on and used e-Gel in a half half marathon and busted a 1:32.44! My personal best of 5 half marathons. The sustained energy is incredible! I absolutely love this product."

"Figuring out how to stay hydrated and prevent muscle cramps during long runs and races has been one of my biggest challenges. In the past my muscles would ache and twitch and cause me a lot of pain after long runs. I came across e-Gel this summer used e-Gel during the Top Of Utah Marathon, took 17 minutes off my previous marathon PR and easily qualified for Boston." (...continue reading)

"I started using these products in January. In March I set a trail and course 50 km personal best. In April I set a road 50 mile PB. In May I ran a distance PB in a 12 hour trail race. The ease of e-Fuel to go into solution allows for a much quicker transition through aid stations. The completeness of the e-Gel allows for good sustainment when you just want to stick with water for your fluid intake." (...continue reading)

"I have used your e-gel and e-fuel to enhance my running experience but this story is not about running. My family and I took a trip to Nepal and did the trek into Everest Base Camp. On our fourth day of treking we were at 15,000 feet and got caught in a blizzard. The temperature dropped quickly and the wind was howling. My 9 year old son started having problems. He was getting very cold, even with his storm gear on, and wanted to sleep. If we came close to a large rock he would lay his head down and try to sleep. Carrying him was not an option we wanted to use because he would have gotten colder. We tried to get him to eat some chocolate but he would not take in very much. I finally got him to eat an e-Gel and start drinking some e-Fuel. The recovery was amazing! Within 10 minutes he was talking up a storm and forging on. We were at our camp site an hour later and he was running around playing with some of the village children. I am not sure what we would have done without the e-Gel and e-Fuel. We take it everywhere with us now. " (...continue reading)

"I am an Ultra-Runner and a proficient sweater and I need to take in large quantities of salt to keep from shutting down during training and races. I was relying on salt caps along with other Gel's like GU to try an maintain my metabolism but it was easy to get the mixture wrong and bonk....I plan on using e-Gel as my main electrolyte / energy gel at Western States 100 mile this June, bypassing the aid station's GU which made me so nauseous by mile 80, I almost did not finish the race."

"I just finished a multi-day event where I ran through the Benton MacKay Trail, start to finish, over 287 miles - fueling almost exclusively on e-Fuel. Each day consisted of an average of 35 miles across some of the toughest mountain trails in the Eastern US. e-Fuel carried me through 9 days with little other nutrition except dinner meals. I have always suffered from over/under hydration using other fuels - e-Fuel is the most complete and efficient fuel I have used. My mountain adventure was a great success largely due to e-Fuel."

"Excellent products. Terrific customer service!

I came across the e-Fuel at the Surf City Marathon in California in 2013. I have been a avid user since. The taste is great - it's not a sticky sweet product. It mixes faster than any other nutrition product. With e-Fuel, I know exactly what I'm getting during multi-hour events. It's light on the stomach and consistently refreshing. I've tried many products over the years and typically get tired of a product after a while; three years and I'm still lovin' it!

Customer service shipments to Maryland has always been quick and responsive."

"I am going to be 60 on May 14 and I've decided to run in the Portland Marathon on 10/09/05 (along with solo skydiving on my birthday). A friend gave me the book "Marathoning for Mortals" to help me. That is where I first heard of eGel/eFuel. I asked my friend about it and she said she used it. So I ordered it and tried it for the first time yesterday. WOW!!!
It is like a miracle product. I was able to do my training session feeling great and I had energy to spare for several hours after I finished (and I didn't have the jitters). I was tempted to go longer but did not want to risk injury."

"In ultrrunning, nutrition is a critical component to success and Crank Sports e-Gel has made a significant difference in my athletic performances....I ran my 9th straight Leona Divide 50 Miler in the Angeles National Forest west of Palmdale. I used e-Gel the entire race. I actually got stronger late in the race and at the 49 mile mark passed the 3rd runner in the 50-59 age group and put 3 1/2 minutes on him in the last mile. I was still accelerating when I hit the finish. What a great experience to run my fastest time on the course ever and take home hardware (3rd place men 50-59) in 9:09:07. Next year, with e-Gel, I look to crack the 9:00 hour mark." (...continue reading)

Many people suffered from heat cramps and vomiting, and had to be pulled off the course. But I did NOT suffer from any of those problems, which was probably due to the high sodium content of the e-Gels I ate during the race; I ate 5 of them!" (...continue reading)

I used e-Gel and e-Fuel in my training, but I saved just enough e-Gel packets to use during my marathon. At age 44, I am proud to announce that I ran the fastest marathon of my life and qualified for the Boston Marathon again for only the second time in 15 years of serious marathon training. Now, I have to admit, I owe it all to e-Gel! Trust me, I'm taking e-Gel along with me to Boston." (...continue reading)

I remembered the coaches telling us to start the race slow and save the energy for the last half of the run. Save that energy, they would pound in me. I was intorduced to Crank's e-Gel by a biker who had read about it and was impressed with the content. I felt, well if he thought it was good and being far more of an endurance running/biking athalete than I had ever thought about being, I would give it a try...." (...continue reading)

I began to use e-Gels in all of my long training runs and followed the advice given on the website religiously. I couldn’t believe how much better I felt when using your gels! I was stronger during my runs, my mind was clearer and my recoveries were a breeze! I ran my first half with the e-Gels and took several minutes off my time previous half time, felt great the entire race and was clear and coherent after the race." (...continue reading)

It is the one product that has continuous energy supply without highs and lows. I have especially liked having all my nutrition needs on the bike premixed in my drink, so I don't have to fumble with gel packs on the bike. At age 47 I am amazed that I am still getting faster and going farther, and I attribute part of that to having a proper energy source and electrolytes during events." (...continue reading)

I took them 45 minutes in (5 miles) just as i started to feel the cramping, and immediately felt relief. Took a second at 97 minutes (11 miles-lesson learned: find out where water stops are before the race) when my legs were really tight; took a little bit but they once again relaxed and i was able to pick back up to my normal pace."

"I started using e-Gel during my training for the Marine Corps Marathon. I had tried (and gave up on) other gels because my stomach couldnt' handle the heavy consistency, and also because they just didn't seem to add very much edge to my performance.

A running club friend suggested I give e-Gel a try. Running in the typical East Coast summer heat and humidity this summer, I couldn't help but feel the immediate bounce from e-Gel - for some reason it absorbs faster than anything else I've tried. I decided to buy a box and go with the Crank PR guarantee, and I went through the remainder of my training season with e-Gel. During that time I easily PR's a half-marathon and saw training times steadily improving.

My run at the Marine Corps Marathon went very well, and I did PR, so I won't be getting the free box of e-Gel. Oh, well, I guess I'll just have to buy another one when I start training in January for my first trip to Boston!

GET YOURSELF SOME OF THIS STUFF! Thanks, Crank!"

"Average Joe review....I am scuba diving instructor and for my birthday I decided to start some running. As I began to train for running I was introduced to the "other" gel. It did not do much for me nor did it taste very good. I discovered Crank e-Gel on my own and orderd the trial pack to see if it worked. The answer: YES and it tasted better that the other stuff. The energy levels are more sustained and not as "peaked" as some of the others. I am so pleased with the results I get that I am not only using e-gel for my runs (I am only doing half marathons at this time) but also for my scuba diving as well. I love the hydration and energy I get from e-Gel in between my 2nd and 3rd deep dives and my half marathons. e-Gel really is SUPERIOR to all the others. I am just a regular guy, master scuba diver, sky diver, commercial plot, mountain biker and now a half marathoner...I am 60 years young and very e-gelerized!! " (...continue reading)

"I'm a 50 year old ultra running competing in 100 mile and 50 mile races. Like everyone else doing these types of runs in extreme conditions I experienced GI problems using a verity of products until I tried Cank. It was easy to get down and I could feel an immediate boost with minutes. Soon it became my fuel of choice ( in 50 mile runs I consume as many as 10-15 packets and in 100 milers as many as 20-25). It has never hurt my stomach and I'm usually able to stay on top of my energy level through out an event. Since using Crank E-Gels I have completed two Wasatch 100 mile runs, two Leadville 100 mile runs and the Tahoe Rim Trail 100 run and will be using using Cank in volume at Western States 100 and the Tour Du Mont Blanc in Chamonix, France.

"I was introduced to e-Gel by a fellow marathoner after I ran the Madison marathon in May. During the Madison race, as in others, I had problems with dehydration. I know I lose a lot of salt in a long race, but sports drinks don't agree with my stomach. Only being able to drink water, it was simply impossible to get enough electrolytes with other gels.

This past weekend I ran a 50-mile ultramarathon, the second year I ran the race. Last year, I also had problems with dehydration and muscle cramping. This year, having used e-Gel in training over the summer, I used e-Gel, and ONLY e-Gel, during the race--13 packets of it--with water. Despite the day being about 15 degrees warmer than last year, I managed my hydration well AND cut over an hour off my time by being able to run "harder, faster, longer." I attribute the better hydration to e-Gel. Also, the larger pack size, and greater calorie count, were both assets during a long race."

"Most of the time I have great steady run until around 18 to 20 then the sh-- hits the fan. So far I have been training with lots of ten mile runs mostly trail runs. Lots of times I would get a little stiff after these but since these e-Gels I have noticed major energy and no soreness afterwards. I love the Mountain rush flavor. " (...continue reading)

"After running 7 marathons, for my 8th LA marathon I have finally found a solution to hitting the wall and not running out of fuel. Also it is SO amazing how I can now drink all the water I need along the way and not have to hit the potty at all. The rep at the expo told me I wouldn't have to go to the bathroom at all, after drinking 14 oz of water with the gel every 5 miles and I told him he was absolutely nuts. My usually weak bladder was in disbelief !! He was so right.

What a great product I found at the LA Marathon expo booth. My stomach normally can't tolerate any of the other gels and the snacks I used to eat on the races, would not fuel my body well enough, but e-gel really agrees with me and tastes and goes down WAY better too. Amazing product-THANK YOU!"

"I have been running marathons for 12 years now and have never been able to abtain my goal of qualifying for Boston. A friend handed me a packet of e-Gel on a training run since I had run out for the last 8 miles of a 18 mile run. Crank gave me the extra energy to finish my run and feel great. I was hooked on the feeling as well as the taste.

I used e-Gel the next six weeks of my training and during the marathon. Needless to say, Crank's guarantee was a success. I had my best time ever in my twelve years of running marathons and finally qualified for Boston! Who would have ever thought I could get faster as I got older!!

I'm a true believer and will continue to use e-Gel as I train for Boston! Thanks!"

"I first discovered e-Gel at the L.A. marathon expo. I was kind of skeptical about how good it worked and was it really worth spending the extra money for the gels. The gels helped me complete my first marathon and they taste much better than Power gels or Cliff shots. I compared the nutrition facts on each of the labels and the e-Gel is much better than the others. It is the best gel product out there!!! I am a firm believer in e-Gels and I use them for everyone of my 60 mile cycling rides every Saturday and everyone of my brick workouts. I never forget to take them along with me to my triathlons, marathons and half marathons. When my friends are bonking, I'm still going!!! Thank you Crank Sports!!!" (...continue reading)

"I have been using e-Gels for my marathons (and long-run training) for over 2 years. I am convinced that e-Gel is the best -- for sodium and potassium replacement and for the 150-calorie energy boost. The taste is pretty good, and they digest easily with water just after gulping down an e-Gel pack. Bonking (or cramping) at the 20-mile mark of a marathon due to insufficient energy/electrlyte replacement happens; but, with e-Gel, no bonking or cramping for me. " (...continue reading)

"I was first turned on to e-Gel at the Rock and Roll Seattle expo. I used it for the half marathon and it seemed to work. However, I wanted to give it a true test. I started training for the Rock and Roll San Antonio marathon, and I used nothing but e-Gel during training. I have never felt so good after a run. Even running in 90+ heat I never cramped up. I have used many other products and have never gotten the results that I did with e-Gel. I just completed the marathon in a personal best time, I actually beat my old best by 15 minutes and I owe it all to e-Gel. " (...continue reading)

I have tried everything - strengthing my inner core (pilates, physical therapy, etc.) and even though these things helped, consuming e-gel made the biggest difference. I don't understand why - maybe some of the medications I take screw up my electrolyte balance or maybe I simply am not getting enough electrolytes - but e-gel (along with motrin!) seems to be one of the important pieces to the puzzle!"

I have been using it ever since in marathons and triathlons and have never had a problem with nausea, having it sit in my stomach like a brick and hinder the absorption of water like some other products I have used. Plus it went down easy. This spring I qualified for the Boston Marathon using e-Gel! " (...continue reading)

At 54 years old, e-Gel gives me what I need to compete and the confidence that goes with it. Thanks for making such a fine product." (...continue reading)

I have a long time competitive cylcing background and never had fuel/stomach issues. After reading loads of related articles and trying every product out there by the top names in ultra distance event fuels I was coming to the conclusion this was just my draw. After using your product on a 50K (Shadow of the Giants) and in the prepatory training, I believe I have found my product! Yay, and thank you Crank Sports. " (...continue reading)

Then I heard about Crank Sports through a running friend. I decided to try both products offered by Crank Sports and now I'm not looking back. I have found, during the time I've been using them, that I'm able to run longer periods of time with a lot less burn out and more energy. I take one e-Gel every 45 mins. and drink at least 20 ounces of e-Fuel every hour and sometimes I can go to an hour and 1/2 What an incredible difference the both have made in my running performance and and energy levels on long runs. And I'm 67 years old. Thank you Crank Sports for two incredible products." (...continue reading)
