First, a little GU background: GU is a Berkeley, Calif.-based sports nutrition company which started in 1991 with original GU Energy Gel. At the time, it was a revolutionary product designed to keep athletes fueled during exercise. Since then, GU’s focus has been to continue to improve on the original recipe, incorporating the latest scientific research into its products. The company has also expanded into sports and recovery drinks and electrolyte tabs.
GU has been helping power Olympic athletes for years (read here about Olympic silver medalist track cyclist and GU fan Dotsie Bausch). GU also fuels AFH’s own Julie Upton during her long training runs on the trails of Marin, Sonoma and Napa counties or when she’s competing in a 50K ultra trail run.
The GU Sample Packs that are up for grabs will include the following products:
GU Brew Electrolyte Tablets: a simple way to help you retain more of the fluid you drink. Available in six flavors, they come in a handy tube—easy to carry and stash anywhere.
Roctane Ultra Endurance Energy Gel: the product of years of testing with thousands of elite athletes, Roctane’s formula is like GU Energy Gel plus. This product has more ingredients for an amped-up gel recipe.
For replenishing post workout, GU’s Chocolate Smoothie Recovery Brew can help you rebuild muscles after an intense workout. GU’s Recovery Brew “reinvents the category ” of recovery products. And it’s chocolate. ‘Nuff said.
Many athletes will tell you that they’re gaga for GU—what about you? Find out by entering to win one of 5 GU Sample Packs. Each pack contains 8 packets of Roctane Ultra Endurance Energy Gel, a 12-tablet tube of GU Brew Electrolyte Tablets, and 3 packets of GU Chocolate Smoothie Recovery Brew—all together worth over $37.
