Gatorade Endurance Formula is on course at this year’s Edward Hospital Naperville Marathon and Half Marathon, fueling you throughout the entire race.
As part of a five-electrolyte blend which includes sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium and chloride, Endurance Formula is a specialized sports drink designed to help maintain hydration during prolonged training and racing when fluid and electrolyte losses can be significant.
It contains nearly 2x the sodium and more than 3x the potassium of Gatorade Thirst Quencher to help maintain hydration and proper fluid balance and help replace the critical electrolytes lost in sweat during these occasions. Find Endurance Formula online at www.fuelbelt.com/GatoradeEndurance or at a Sport-Specialty retailer near you.

"This was truly a first class event from registration through the runner reunite area. Every detail was well thought out and executed perfectly! The race directors listened to the runners and gave them a race to remember! Also, the town of Naperville welcomed and supported this race with open arms! This was my 10th marathon and was definitely one of the best! Well done race directors, volunteers, spectators, and runners! Two very enthusiastic thumbs up!"
