I am not an endurance athlete but I will participate in a five hour event in August. My buddy, in celebration of his 50th b-day, wants to ascend Pikes Peak (14,100 ft) in under 5 hours; one per decade. This will be a very strenuous.
I wonder if Surge makes sense as a fluid replacement/nutrition source while I am climbing? If so, I wonder if it would be best to sip the entire time or split it up into a several “meals”. Maybe I’d be better off with water and several MD energy bars.
Any thoughts/recommendations appreciated.
