Sports Nutrition Essentials

Lucozade Sport is the official sports nutrition partner of the Virgin Money London Marathon


Whatever motivates you to pull on your trainers and do the miles, Lucozade Sport is here to help you get the most out of your Virgin Money London Marathon journey.

Lucozade has partnered the Virgin Money London Marathon for 15 years and with all those miles under our belt, we know what it takes to cross the finish line in glory.

With your running as our priority we have a range of products to fuel and hydrate you – making sure you get the results you want from the 26.2 miles.

Hydration and nutrition can make or break your marathon but the good news - it's easy to get it right

When you exercise heavily or for a prolonged period of time, replacing what your body loses through sweat is important, as well as providing sufficient energy to allow you to continue to run.

Lucozade Sport provides carbohydrate for fuel and replaces electrolytes lost through sweat. Its carbohydrate – electrolyte isotonic formulation helps runners maximise the rate of fluid uptake and maintain endurance performance.

When it comes to race day, we are with you from start to finish, topping up your energy levels on-course. Lucozade Sport can be found at miles 5, 10, 15, 19 and 23. We recommend you carry the bottle while you run, sipping slowly.

Lucozade Sport Elite Dual Fuel System Carbo Gels is available at miles 14 and 21 to help you get the fuel you need, when you need it.
