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 did my first 100 mile event dec 30,31,2015
a good friend who is a great ultra runner told me about it, i live in texas ,trained during the summer months, my body needed a lot just to make the long training runs. tailwind gave me what i needed to do this and get thru all the long heated training days.
Wow is all I can say. I have been racing for 6 years, in 2015 I signed up for Ultraman Florida a 321.6 mile triathlon. I knew I was going to need some spot on nutrition for such a long event.
I found Tailwind through a fellow endurance runner friend.
I have never felt so good as I have this year, I used it for all of my training and races in 2015. I of course used for my Ultraman race this February. Not once since I have been using Tailwind have I hit a wall or nutritionally bonked. I race and finish strong.
I am not sponsored by Tailwind, nor do I receive any type of free items. This is an honest review of a product that works perfectly, tastes great and is easy to calculate amounts needed per event.
My wife and I started and finished our first trial 50K using tailwind. I had a bad experience with my first marathon back in December from heat (yes, in December - I know, right?) causing my electrolyte levels to drop. I knew going into the 50K that a solid nutrition plan would make or break the race. I had heard Tailwind mentioned in various ultra-marathon podcasts and figured we'd give it a shot.
All the flavors are good, neither my wife or I had any digestive issues during the race. I'm happy to have a go-to solution for my electrolyte and caloric needs during those really long runs.
I tried this for the first (race) time in an trail ultra. It was a hot day in the mountains and I ran the first 47k and felt the best I have ever felt at that distance in a race. I then made the mistake of thinking I needed to add more calories. I ate a whole banana and almost threw up (in hind sight I should have) too many calories, too hot. I went threw a rough patch for a few hours as my stomach dealt with that and then got back to it using nothing but Tailwind till the end. Used it again for another trail ultra in the mountains, even hotter, I found that I needed less than the suggested amount for "endurance grunts," we are all different. I think this product works great and have stopped looking for anything else. Also nice to get a personalized note in the order. It's always nice to support the little guy (growing up fast). Thanks Tailwind
I tried Tailwind on my Tuesday night run and had my first 30K trail race a few days ago. I filled my hydration pack with it and thought if I needed anything else I would eat something from the aid stations. At the first station I ate one potato chip. Mostly out of habit of seeing food and eating it! That's all I had the entire run other than the Tailwind. I couldn't believe it! I felt good right up to the finish and wasn't hungry. I can't wait to use this in my next marathon and 52K coming up. It's amazing! I always relied on GU and with this I feel like I stay even instead of highs and lows through the entire run. Glad I found you!
I tried Tailwind about two years ago for the first time. It actually exceeded my expectations as far as flavor and performance. I'm not a fan of ordering online so I actually looked for comparable powders at my local bike shop. I tried numerous products from Hammer, Skratch, Gu, etc. with no success. They all either tasted funky, were just plain odd (Gu?) or didn't do the actual job, which is to keep from bonking or feeling hungry on the bike. I regularly spend anywhere from 2-hr. to 6-hrs. on the saddle and all I use is Tailwind. I just wish my local bike shop carried it!
I purchased tailwind for the first time a few weeks before my first 50 mile race. I've always struggled with getting my nutrition right in my past marathons and 50ks. First, the customer service was awesome, I received a personalized email before the race from someone at Tailwind asking if I had questions and wishing me luck. I ended up running the best race of my life. I didn't use anything else besides tailwind. I felt great after the race too, but better than I usually do after an ultra! I can't wait to continue to use Tailwind as I get ready for my first 100!
I've trained with Tailwind since March with the goal to tackle Leadville Trail 100 this summer. I have nothing but good words to say about Tailwind. It really worked for me and allowed me to finish many races including Leadville. (Big accomplishment since I am a flat lander!) During the 100, I just used this product and occasionally had some cups of Coke. No solid foods or electrolyte tabs needed. Thank you for this awesome product! I am a big fan and will be using Tailwind for all my future races!!!
A group of us did a R2R2R run/hike at the Grand Canyon back in May. On our final ascent, we had been awake for 26+ hours and were all very fatigued - not the best situation to be in with steep drop offs just steps off the trail. I pulled out the rest of my bag of the Caffeinated Endurance Fuel and mixed us each up a bottle. It perked us right up and gave us the energy we needed to get the thing finished. Tailwind definitely saved the day!
