Trail Run Spain.

Coventry University Research



At Al Andalus Ultimate Trail 2011 a Coventry University research team, led by Dr. Ricardo Costa, (who also competed), conducted a survey which further extended the study done during the 2010 race. The "Assessment of Nutritional & Hydration Habits of Ultra-Marathon Runners during a Semi Self-Sufficient Ultra-Marathon Competition in a Hot Ambient Environment".

The full results are published here in the two pdf’s and this information regarding general sports nutrition and dietary guidelines and recommendations should be very useful to all runners, not just those doing ultra stage races. Thanks once again to the team from Coventry University for making Al Andalus their laboratory for such an important study.
