    • Stomach problems solved!
      I’ve struggled with GI issues when running ultramarathons since I started doing them over 10 years ago. U SPORT is a game-changer - in a recent 100k race I used it throughout and it delivered consistent energy with no upset tummy! Can’t wait to keep exploring the UMARA universe

    • U Gels - Highly Recommended
      U gels are simply awesome. I used them for the OTW 100K race. They are easy on stomach and easy to eat. I took them with U Sport and U bar, it forms a complete nutrition package for ultras.

    • UGels - Effective and Tasty!
      UGels are tasty and packaged easy to consume on the go. It has a good light and not too runny consistency and it's combination of electrolyte mix means you don't have to take so many gels each hour compared to other gels I've taken in the past, (great for even my delicate stomach), and means less to carry during a long run. Works really well with the U SPORT powder too. Can't wait to try out more flavours!

    • Lodewijk Vriens

      Lodewijk Vriens

      Lodewijk is from the Netherlands residing in Hong Kong. Not new to ultras, Lodewijk first ran his first HK100 back in 2017 in 14:20. He has since then improved on his times, to finish in 11:58 in 2023! Lodewijk has also gone up in distance to compete in the Doi Inthanon 100 Miles in 2022, and again this year, placing 7th and 9th respectively! Lodewijk is returning to the 100K distance, for this 7th edition of the HK100! In the last two years, Lodewijk has gained maturity in his racing, on top of the talent he already possesses, so we are excited to see him compete amongst the very best of the sport in 2 weeks time!
