Real Stories From Real Customers

Running with e-Gel and e-Fuel

"I typically alternated between GU and Roctane on my long runs and Nuun drink tablets in my water bottle. During long training runs, I started having a few stomach issues that I thought were caused by meals the nights before those long training run. During a 50K, I had issues half way through the race and knew it was the Roctane. Cheese quesadillas saved the day, but I decided it was time for something new. I found the Crank Sports website and liked the easy to use comparison chart. I thought I'd give e-Gel a try.

Unfortunately, I didn't have any testing time before my next race. I had to break the golden rule and try something new on race day. I loaded my belt with e-Gel and crossed my fingers. I ran the 2016 Chevron Houston Marathon and it was a great experience. No stomach issues and no muscle cramping. Water in my bottle and an e-Gel every hour got me through the race. I'm not the fastest runner, but I set a PR of 4:50:42 and did not feel destroyed after crossing the finish line.

I am big fan of Mountain Rush and Cherry Bomb and those flavors will be loaded in my belt from this point forward. "

"I am 35 years old and completed my third marathon, Top Of Utah. Figuring out how to stay hydrated and prevent muscle cramps during long runs and races has been one of my biggest challenges. In the past my muscles would ache and twitch and cause me a lot of pain after long runs. I tried Gatorade and other carb gels but had a hard time finding something that was easy on stomach, kept me from cramping, and helped me avoid bonking. I came across Crank e-Gel this summer" (...read more)

"I was running my best marathon ever in Detroit. I had five miles to go and I took my Tropical Blast e-Gel because there was a water station about 100 yards ahead. I got to the station and it was a bunch of guys handing out beer! Determined, I went on. The e-Gel was so easy to digest, I got through it just fine when I hit a water station about a mile later. Somehow that just cranked me and my fastest mile was mile 26. Not only did I finally hit my sub-three hour dream, I hit 2:57!" (...read more)

"I used e-Gels exclusively and exactly as directed in training for the Lakefront Marathon. This was my fourth marathon and I did not expect to PR, but just to complete it well. But the weather was perfect, the training paid off, and with the help of e-Gels taken at miles 2, 7, 13, 18, and 23, I took 10 minutes off of my marathon time and never hit the 'wall' or cramped as I had done in previous events. Some guy laughed at me at the start asking why I had so many gels. I told him I had a plan and I was sticking to it. I'm pretty sure I passed him somewhere around mile 22." (...read more)

"I have used your e-gel and e-fuel to enhance my running experience but this story is not about running. My family and I took a trip to Nepal and did the trek into Everest Base Camp. On our fourth day of treking we were at 15,000 feet and got caught in a blizzard. The temperature dropped quickly and the wind was howling. My 9 year old son started having problems. He was getting very cold, even with his storm gear on, and wanted to sleep. If we came close to a large rock he would lay his head down and try to sleep. Carrying him was not an option we wanted to use because he would have gotten colder. We tried to get him to eat some chocolate but he would not take in very much. I finally got him to eat an e-Gel and start drinking some e-Fuel. The recovery was amazing! Within 10 minutes he was talking up a storm and forging on. We were at our camp site an hour later and he was running around playing with some of the village children. I am not sure what we would have done without the e-Gel and e-Fuel. We take it everywhere with us now. " (...read more)

It is like a miracle product. I was able to do my training session feeling great and I had energy to spare for several hours after I finished (and I didn't have the jitters). I was tempted to go longer but did not want to risk injury."

I was intorduced to Crank's e-Gel by a biker who had read about it and was impressed with the content.

"Average Joe review....I am scuba diving instructor and for my birthday I decided to start some running. As I began to train for running I was introduced to the "other" gel. It did not do much for me nor did it taste very good. I discovered Crank e-Gel on my own and orderd the trial pack to see if it worked. The answer: YES and it tasted better that the other stuff. The energy levels are more sustained and not as "peaked" as some of the others. I am so pleased with the results I get that I am not only using e-gel for my runs (I am only doing half marathons at this time) but also for my scuba diving as well. I love the hydration and energy I get from e-Gel in between my 2nd and 3rd deep dives and my half marathons. e-Gel really is SUPERIOR to all the others. I am just a regular guy, master scuba diver, sky diver, commercial plot, mountain biker and now a half marathoner...I am 60 years young and very e-gelerized!! " (...read more)

"I was introduced to e-Gel by a fellow marathoner after I ran the Madison marathon in May. During the Madison race, as in others, I had problems with dehydration. I know I lose a lot of salt in a long race, but sports drinks don't agree with my stomach. Only being able to drink water, it was simply impossible to get enough electrolytes with other gels.

This past weekend I ran a 50-mile ultramarathon, the second year I ran the race. Last year, I also had problems with dehydration and muscle cramping. This year, having used e-Gel in training over the summer, I used e-Gel, and ONLY e-Gel, during the race--13 packets of it--with water. Despite the day being about 15 degrees warmer than last year, I managed my hydration well AND cut over an hour off my time by being able to run "harder, faster, longer." I attribute the better hydration to e-Gel. Also, the larger pack size, and greater calorie count, were both assets during a long race."

"I started using e-Gel during my training for the Marine Corps Marathon. I had tried (and gave up on) other gels because my stomach couldnt' handle the heavy consistency, and also because they just didn't seem to add very much edge to my performance.

A running club friend suggested I give e-Gel a try. Running in the typical East Coast summer heat and humidity this summer, I couldn't help but feel the immediate bounce from e-Gel - for some reason it absorbs faster than anything else I've tried. I decided to buy a box and go with the Crank PR guarantee, and I went through the remainder of my training season with e-Gel. During that time I easily PR's a half-marathon and saw training times steadily improving.

My run at the Marine Corps Marathon went very well, and I did PR, so I won't be getting the free box of e-Gel. Oh, well, I guess I'll just have to buy another one when I start training in January for my first trip to Boston!

GET YOURSELF SOME OF THIS STUFF! Thanks, Crank!"

I came across e-Gels late in training and only got to try them once before the race, but during the race (and since) they worked great. I took them 45 minutes in (5 miles) just as i started to feel the cramping, and immediately felt relief. Took a second at 97 minutes (11 miles-lesson learned: find out where water stops are before the race) when my legs were really tight; took a little bit but they once again relaxed and i was able to pick back up to my normal pace."

Also it is SO amazing how I can now drink all the water I need along the way and not have to hit the potty at all. The rep at the expo told me I wouldn't have to go to the bathroom at all, after drinking 14 oz of water with the gel every 5 miles and I told him he was absolutely nuts. My usually weak bladder was in disbelief !! He was so right.

What a great product I found at the LA Marathon expo booth. My stomach normally can't tolerate any of the other gels and the snacks I used to eat on the races, would not fuel my body well enough, but e-gel really agrees with me and tastes and goes down WAY better too. Amazing product-THANK YOU!"

"After cramping bad in my first two marathons (Chicago, Twin Cities) I decided to try your product. I have been pleasantly surprised. Along with good hydration I have not cramped in any of my training runs and completed the Houston Marathon in my best time and with no cramps ! I am now ready to train for the Marine Corp and will have e-Gel in my belt for all my long runs. A great product !!" (...read more)

"I picked up some e-Gel at the fitness expo before my first marathon. I hadn't seen the product before and I was taking a chance using the first time during a race, but it worked well. I have been using it ever since in marathons and triathlons and have never had a problem with nausea, having it sit in my stomach like a brick and hinder the absorption of water like some other products I have used. Plus it went down easy. This spring I qualified for the Boston Marathon using e-Gel! " (...read more)

"e-Gel has helped my training for my first marathon tremendously. The e-Gel really takes care of the fatigue I was feeling when I was hitting the 15 mile mark. Now, I can cruise right through it. Also, I would like to say I am glad that Crank Sports has kept any type of artificial sweetener out of their products. Sucralose and Aspartame shouldn't be in our systems that we push to the limit.

"Competed in the Moose Mountain Marathon in Lutsen, Minnesota this September. Without your product I would probably still be on the course. While not a speedy guy - I found the e-Gel kept me going and the e-Fuel gave me a nice pick me up at the aid stations. Used these products through out the course of the summer and have been quite pleased with them. Now its is deer hunting season and I am sure a few will find there ways into my pockets for some of those long days in the woods. Thanks for a great product!" (...read more)

"Running ultramarathons requires a lot of calories and electrolytes. E-gel provides plenty of both. Last year, I completed 2-100 milers, 3-50 milers, 3 50ks, and 2 trail marathons; all of them fueled with e-Gel. At 54 years old, e-Gel gives me what I need to compete and the confidence that goes with it. Thanks for making such a fine product." (...read more)

"My wife and I have been using Crank for our runs over the last few months and it seems to give a much more even and smooth delivery of energy and is much easier on the stomach. Other gels get too sweet if you are on a long run and have more than two, and they don't deliver energy as evenly over the 30/45 minutes between gels. " (...read more)

"Newer to long distance running (trails) I have wrestled with being able to fuel, stay hydrated and not puke at or near the end of any distance run after the 21+ mile mark. Nothing would stay down. I have a long time competitive cylcing background and never had fuel/stomach issues. After reading loads of related articles and trying every product out there by the top names in ultra distance event fuels I was coming to the conclusion this was just my draw. After using your product on a 50K (Shadow of the Giants) and in the prepatory training, I believe I have found my product! Yay, and thank you Crank Sports. " (...read more)

"I have used basically all the other energy gels and hydration drinks available. There was one energy gel and drink that I used more than others. Then I heard about Crank Sports through a running friend. I decided to try both products offered by Crank Sports and now I'm not looking back. I have found, during the time I've been using them, that I'm able to run longer periods of time with a lot less burn out and more energy. I take one e-Gel every 45 mins. and drink at least 20 ounces of e-Fuel every hour and sometimes I can go to an hour and 1/2 What an incredible difference the both have made in my running performance and and energy levels on long runs. And I'm 67 years old. Thank you Crank Sports for two incredible products." (...read more)

"I have found e-Gel to be of a much thinner consistency than other similar products so it goes down easier. It provides a similar boost to those products containing caffeine, but it does not have the caffeine." (...read more)
