As expected the run across the Grand Canyon from south rim to north and back was epic. I can say that fuel was not a concern and that dates and some boiled potatoes and a ziplock with some black beans and rice was plenty. The inner canyon is just so amazing when your on foot down in the bottom. I took some photos, but they really cant capture the immensity of the place. I'll post some once I get them off my camera (it was a long drive back home today). Anyone looking for a great running adventure, I highly recommend rim to rim to rim. Search r2r2r on YouTube for some great footage.
I hope you take some good photos on the way sounds like a great outing.
Hey Declan we are just starting our Xcountry season here congrats for you effort in the Canadian Championships last year.
Damn Michael that sounds epic! would def like to here how it goes make sure your well hydrated bud!
I'm planning to do a double crossing of the Grand Canyon next week. Rim to Rim to Rim (r2r2r). Its about 50 miles with just under 12,000 feet of elevation change. I'm planning to take enough food for 15 hours of running. Mostly dates, with a few bananas and a small bag of rice and beans for lunch at the halfway point on the north rim. This will be my longest run on REAL food. My training for this over the past few months has shown me how much better it is to be fueled with real food rather than all that sugar/maltodextrin junk they market to distance athletes. No stomach issues at all. The food does not pack as easily. I really prefer bananas, but they are just too hard to pack for anything over about 6-7 hours of running. Dates pack much better. I also found that dates work better if they are soaked before eating, and I have a small flask that was originally designed for holding the gel goop for triathletes. I put a date or two in it and transfer some water into it a few minutes before I need to eat. Just letting them soak for a bit really helps to digest it easier. Looking forward to an epic day running in the canyon. I'll post here again after to let you know how it goes.
@Dennis, I don't add anything other than greens and some some cocos or avocados. What is your purpose? More calories? I just don't feel as light or quick when I eat anything else.
I am running a half marathon next year for veganism. https://www.justgiving.com/Phoebe-Nobes Please support!
I run few 10 miles every three days in a week.
I hope to run a half marathon or a full marathon next year. How long do you think it will take to train for one? I run about 5k most days.
