RUNNING ADVENTURES is owned by ultra runner and adventure seeker Matt Buck. Matt offers a range of services including coaching (from 5km to ultra running), guided trail adventures, events and more. We armed Matt with FitBites for his Snowdonia climb so that he could test the product to the limits. Matt became a fan and here’s his latest blog
I’m very lucky to be endorsed by a number of brands and companies, and I wanted to write a short blog post about one of those companies…FitBites. It’s worth noting that I only align myself with companies that offer a product that I enjoy, and will get good use out of…
For those that are unfamiliar, FitBites are basically energy balls, AMAZING energy balls, and I’m not just saying that. They are 100% natural, raw energy balls with superfoods to give you that extra nutritional boost. They originate from the ultra running world as they were inspired by the mighty Mohamad Ahansal, multi Marathon Des Sables winning Moroccan and all round ultra running legend. When racing, Mohamad simply crushed dates and almonds into a small ball, popped them into his backpack and he was off. ‘Keep it simple and keep it natural guys’ were his words, and so FitBites were born.
I’ve been using them for training in the mountains for the Berghaus Dragon’s Back Race and they have been amazing, you get 2 balls in each pack which is the perfect sized snack while on the move, with some amazing flavours. They pack some pretty awesome nutritional value too, as you can see below.
I’ll be dishing these out to some lucky runners who come on my adventures over the next few months, you’re in for a treat.
