It’s 15 minutes before your endurance activity, your body needs enough energy to give you both, a confident start and sustained momentum. While a single source pre-workout energy mix of instant energy can propel you at the beginning, if it’s not combined with a sustained energy source, you will soon start to experience spiking and dropping. This can wear you down physically, impact your mental stamina and adversely affect your performance. Adequate amounts of carbohydrates in the system can avoid these highs and lows, and ensure that once you start, you don’t slow down.
RRUNN™ Pre is a blend of simple and complex, high-glycemic and low-glycemic carbohydrates. Dextrose in RRUNN™ Pre is a 100 GI high-glycemic carbohydrate. It is easily digestible, breaks down quickly and is rapidly absorbed by the body – giving you the instant burst of energy you need at the crucial beginning stages of your activity.
Isomaltulose is a 32GI low-glycemic carbohydrate which is difficult to break down. Isomaltulose releases energy in a gradual, more prolonged manner and this energy lasts for up to 120 minutes of your activity. The 32GI carbohydrate also that ensures your body’s own carbohydrate stores don’t get used up too early, so you can tap into this precious energy source when you need it the most in the later stages of your endurance activity.
These carbohydrates are non-competing and synergistic. Once you have raced through the surge of instant energy from the high GI carbohydrate, the low GI carb kicks in with the sustained energy support – helping you to maintain your head-start. You don’t experience a lag between the instant and sustained energy support, which means no sugar spikes and no ‘crashing’.
These synergistic carbohydrates help you surge ahead, and once you achieve your peak, they help you stay on top without dropping.

What carbohydrates are in RRUNN™ Pre?
RRUNN™ Pre is a blend of Dextrose, a simple, high GI carbohydrate and Isomaltulose, a complex low GI carbohydrate. Dextrose supplies you with instant energy, while Isomaltulose is a source of slower, more sustained energy.
Why is RRUNN™ Pre superior to other pre-workout energy drinks?
Most other energy sports drinks only provide a high GI carbohydrate of 100, which means it only supplies instant energy, and not sustained energy. RRUNN™’s blend of high GI and low GI carbohydrates gives you both – instant energy, and long lasting energy, making it the ideal pre-workout energy mix.
