In Testing

I’ve not fared well with some other energy gels on the market, given an adverse effect on my stomach during digestion. Therefore I was incredibly excited when Maurten introduced the Gel 100.

This is a lighter and more natural solution for the provision of energy. I first tried it on a half-marathon, taking one after passing the 10K mark, and felt the energy boost settle in without any upset stomach at the end.

I am pleased to say I still continue to use only Maurten gels for my longer runs. The lack of excess ingredients and flavourings means that I can go through miles, assured that the Gel 100 will keep me energised.


The safest option for every runner to try, Maurten’s Gel 100 ensures no artificial flavourings, providing energy through a high carbohydrate concentration.

Maurten has surpassed expectations by reinventing the classic energy gel, harnessing hydrogel technology to introduce runners to a new and improved world of energy.
