Chicago is your start line in



Maurten is the Official Hydrogel Sports Fuel for the Bank of America Chicago Marathon.

Maurten discovered a way for athletes to tolerate high concentrations of carbohydrates as fuel during training and racing. Encapsulated by hydrogel, the carbohydrates move easily through the stomach, to the intestines, where they get absorbed faster into the body. More comfort and more carbohydrates — means better performance. It’s clean, with only natural ingredients — no added flavors, colors, or preservatives.

On-course, Maurten Hydrogel Fuel Depots will be stocked with Gel 100 — the original marathon hydrogel. Each Gel contains 25 grams of carbohydrates.

Running the miles in training is only half the story. To understand how your body responds to fueling you need to train your guts as well as your legs. You need to get used to it. Your body adapts to fueling during training so that — come race day — you know what to expect.

Maurten’s patented Hydrogel Technology is fueling the fastest athletes to world records, gold medals and world championships.
