Part of proper event preparation includes everything ingested on race day. Staying hydrated with enough calories ready to burn is essential to good performance. Many reach for the liquid turbo, the high test, the bitter bean, or even Coke straight up. First Endurance's PreRace replaces all those cross-purposed fluids with an athlete-specific formula that does more than serve as a caffeine delivery system.
