Staying hydrated during an ultra is perhaps the most important consideration. Dehydration can adversely affect performance and even lead to death. Hydration strategies involve quite a few decisions, such as:

  • How will you carry your hydrating agent?
  • What will you use? Water? Sports drink? Red Bull?
  • How much and how often will you drink?
  • Will you rely on aid stations, or pack your own drinks?
  • What about hydrating during training runs?

I'll address these issues in this section.
