Aussie CLIF athlete and ambassador Sam Weir

Ambassadors and athletes 

CLIF's Australia Ambassador Program has 12 notable athletes inspiring, endorsing, and informing on product uses and benefits. There's a bar for every adventure, from climbing, triathlons, surfing, skateboarding, running, mountain biking, cycling, and more.

Aussie CLIF athlete and ambassador Sam Weir embodies the brand's ethos and tributes mental strength for his commitment to ultra-marathon running.

"When opportunities arise to do epic things, don't say no; say yes, as you never know where it will lead you. Refrain from over-analysing and enjoy the benefits, from setting and achieving goals to completing a race. Nutrition comes down to clean fuel, mental processing, and fortitude; work on that, and you will become stronger".

When asked about nutrition planning for running 100km, Weir says: 

"Nutrition for trails comes with the crucial lead-up the week before racing, I find carb loading an old-school mentality, and you end up expelling vital energy in breaking down heavy carbs when you should be running. I've always preferred a watermelon the night before for carbs, fructose and hydration. On race day, I start with a short black coffee 2 hrs before the race start, a CLIF nut butter bar for the 7 grams of protein and a last hit of carbs and sugars. Then it's all CLIF shot blocks for the 100 km, consuming two individual blocks or a gel every 30 mins. Tip: know the terrain and take an extra shot block before hitting steep sections. For food, I have a CLIF bar every 2hrs and fruit at the aid stations for hydration. I like to keep it simple and keep my daily nutrition simple. Consider sodium and magnesium as tablets, shots, or food if you expect warm weather."
