Take the Tailwind Challenge!
If you don't love it, we pay your entry fee.*
It's simple: if Tailwind doesn't make you stronger, happier, and less stressed during training and at your next event, we'll pay your entry fee.
Just order the Tailwind Challenge pack - four large bags bundled at 10% off - train with it, race with it, and if it doesn't blow you away, mail us your race entry fee receipt for a refund.
*The fine print: You knew there'd be some! Entry fee reimbursement is limited to $150 maximum, and you must start the event to be eligible for reimbursement.If Tailwind just didn't do it for you, we'd like to hear about it:
Send a little description of your experience along with your entry fee receipt and evidence that you started the event, and we'll cut you a check.

I took the Tailwind Challenge, for the upcoming TRT100 miler in July.
I had some questions after using it for the first time, and within an hour of emailing customer service, I received a very thorough response, and each of my questions was answered perfectly - and, the customer service rep gave me some suggestions that I immediately put to use.
I tried out the Tailwind on a 27 mile run on the Mt. Whitney Trail last weekend. I also shared it with a couple girlfriends - we all experienced the same result- when we started to feel depleted, climbing in altitude, we took more Tailwind, and our symptoms eased. So far, it has passed the test! Here's a post from my blog on the trip:

Very happy with the level of nutrition and performance though my rides
I bring a dry mix with me and just add water
could not be any easier

I have waited a bit to write my review, I wanted to try this out in various training conditions and distances.
In the past I have struggled with consuming nutrition/electrolytes that wouldn't have an adverse affect on my system. Let's be honest, who wants to end up with gut distress (read I need a bathroom NOW) at any point in a training run or race? I also struggled with heartburn issues from fuel and electrolyte sources. Often I would forego consuming electrolytes and just focus on nutrition and hydration. BAD idea. I am amazed at how much difference it makes to keep your body well supplied with electrolytes.
I have used Tailwind on short hour long runs all the way up to marathon distance runs. I am in training for a 100 mile trail ultra, so mileage is only going up from here! I've used it in hot humid conditions, mild conditions, and cool conditions. I will say that in the hotter humid conditions it is wise to dilute the mix a little more, but it still works fantasticly.
I am happy to report that Tailwind holds up to it's promise, and it's truly ALL you need. Yes, I was skeptical on my first long run, but I put complete faith in it, and it held up extremely well. I love that I can mix this up in my hydration pack and I don't need to bring anything else with me. I can easily sip it as I move along the trail, no worries about face planting while trying to eat additional nutrition.
I used to be prone to horrible foot/leg/body cramps both during runs and post run. Since using the Tailwind products, these have vanished! I'm so glad I decided to take the Tailwind challenge!!
The flavors are awesome, I ordered the Lemon, Mandarin Orange, caffinated Raspberry, and the Naked version. I love them all. They are light in flavor, mix easily, and easy to digest. Bottom line, this product is awesome. Order it now.
