Thanks.  I couldn't find him on here in the members..... I'll check out his website though... thanks!!  Oh, and thanks for the Datorade recipe too!  I've got a 29miler followed by a 25 miler next weekend, so I'll give it a go!

You can find him on here and add as a friend. Otherwise go to his website http://www.thefruitarian.com/. He has loads of information on here about his fueling for ultra-marathons, the thing is he usually has a support team to cut up melon for him at aid stations and juice oranges etc. I think generally he doesn't eat a lot of dates but when running ultras he has no choice.

 

I generally don't run anything above 10k right now but it seems from other people's experience that fruit alone is a great fuel source for ultra-marathons, the struggle will be getting enough calories in consistently throughouth the race. The 'recipe' for datorade couldn't be simpler, put pitted dates in a blender with water about an inch above the dates . Then blend! You can add as much water as desired to make it digest well, some people soak the dates in the water overnight.

 

Well done Rich that's awesome! Onwards and upwards

Hey, just completed my first marathon - barefoot! I've only been running for around 6 months so I was pretty stoked to get through it. Now on to bigger and better things!!

I recommend talking with Michael Arnestein.  He has run 100 milers and he is totally 811!

I run ultras, and I've been eating as a veggie and then vegan up to this point, toyed with raw on and off, but now fully committed to it.  On my ultras (I run from 26-36 milers most weekends, and 50-100 milers 6+ times a year) I used to eat porridge for brekkie and take vegan biscuits and crisps with me, washed down with soya milk...... 

Now I am committing to 80/10/10rv, what would you suggest I take?

I was thinking of a huge banana fest for breakfast, possibly made into a smoothie with some celery, and taking a few bananas, clementines, dates and a couple of smoothies with me.  But as I will need to carry all this (checkpoints don't generally have fruit available) I'm concerned at how I will sustain myself over 8, 12, 15, 24+ hours of running.  The 100 milers I can stash food in advance, but not at any of the shorter ones.

I've seen 'Date-o-rade' mentioned here and was wondering if I could have the recipe?  Any suggestions are MOST MOST welcome! 

Thanks all! x

Awesome!  I love running while eating raw. Fruit is the ultimate for marathoners!

I would not be able to meet my calorie needs by eating once a day, unless I ate lots of dried fruits, raw honey, avocados or other fatty foods... Not sure how you can do this? As for not eating before a competition, I would not call this fasting but simply avoiding to have your body still spending energy on digestion when the fire goes off... If you stop eating 3 hours or more before a race, that should be sufficient... This does not mean, of course, that you should not control what you eat in the previous meals as well: most 811 runners avoid greens and produce with high fiber content the previous day, or even during 2 or 3 days prior to an event, preferring high-water content foods and juices.

Does anyone fast before running.  I normally just drink water even before and during a full marathon.  I just can't fathom a banana bouncing around in my belly for 4 hours.  Also, lately I have been eating one meal a day and feeling much lighter and energetic.  I fast every 24 hours and eat my evening meal raw.  Seems to help with the running and I feel lighter.
