ON THE RUN:
Stash GU packets in the built-in pockets of your running and triathlon shorts and tops. Women can even tuck GU into their jog bras!
On long, multi-hour runs or adventures carry GU in the Marathon'r Lite (holds 7 GU packets) or Marathon'r (holds 10 GU packets).
For combined fluid and GU transport, strap the Distance Train'r around your waist (holds 4 packets of GU and a 22-oz. water bottle).
To keep things super simple, the Grip 22-oz. water bottle with handle/GU holder is ideal for an hour-long run.
ON THE BIKE:
Fill a Flask with multiple packets of GU and carry it in your jersey pocket so you can grab a shot of GU throughout your ride. Or use the Bike Mount to store it on your bike during a triathlon. Carry single-serving packs of GU2O in powder form so you can mix up a fresh bottle of fluid as you need it.
Individual gel packets can also be stored in a bento box style carrier, popular in triathlon racing.
A nother trick from the triathlon pros is to tape gel packets along your bike's top tube. Only tape down the tear-off top tab; when you're ready to consume just grab a GU and the top will stay in place, your packet perfectly opened and ready to eat.
ON THE WATER :
If catching waves is your passion, tuck waterproof GU packets under your wetsuit sleeve and avoid a hunger-driven early return to shore.
ON THE SNOW:
In sub-freezing weather, keep GU underneath your outer layer and close to your skin to keep it warm and easy to squeeze.
Roll GU packets up like toothpaste tubes to make sure you benefit from every last tasty bit.
Store empty packets in a spare pocket or under the hem of your bike shorts for later disposal, or take advantage of our Stash Your Trash Program.
