Do you want to keep up with your friends when you’re hiking, backpacking, or trail running? Energy gels can help, and this month a lucky Hiking Lady winner will receive a sample pack of GU Energy gels.

GU Energy Gels are what hikers, runners, and other athletes use to get quick energy, fast.
How do they work? Each gel is 100 calories in the form of carbohydrates, electrolytes, and antioxidants. So they help serve as a fuel source for your body and as well as delaying fatigue.

    Hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu in April to celebrate my 65th! I’ve never hiked anywhere before! Will need all the energy I can get! Would love to try these on my trek, especially since they are a fuel source and delay fatigue! Wish me luck! Thanks for the info!

    Would love to win these! These would be great on our trek this summer. Just found your website today and it super helpful. I am trying to prepare for a 10 day trek with our boyscout troop in July in New Mexico. So many great tips and advice. I am really grateful for the information on altitude sickness, my doctor didn’t know what to do and now I can bring information back to her! Thanks for being here 🙂

    I want to participate in your Gu contest. Thanks for your YouTube video on preventing blisters when running. I’m going to try your advice in a 10mile run this sunday.

    In addition to drinking lots of water, GU gel packets have saved me (and others) from suffering heat exhaustion on Arizona trails. GU helps in maintaining critical electrolyte and vitamin/mineral levels. It is quickly absorbed into the bloodstream. Highly recommended.

  6. Amanda Dunn says:

    I would love to try these gels! I am just getting into hiking and am planning a couple week backpacking adventure here in Arkansas in May for graduation and these gels would be a great addition! Thanks!

  9. Julie Hart says:

    I have used GU since 1995 when I needed a quick energy boost during offshore personal watercraft endurance races. I now have them as tasty quick and dirty energy needs on the trail and need a replenishment of stock for the Havasupai, AZ adventure planned in spring this year!

    It’s winter and I want my mind filled with all things outdoors and summer. The gels would help…..definately.

  11. Steve Carothers says:

    Seems like the best way to start off a new hiking year…with plenty of energy gel. Thank You…

  12. Jennifer says:

    I last used the GU Energy Gels when riding my bike for four days on the Great Allegheny Passage. Great for the afternoons when I began to feel hungry but dinner was still a few hours away. A good product.

  13. Priyanka says:

    I would love to win these gels as am backpacking every other weekend in Feb and March! I could really use these and not worry too much about the food I have to pack:) Love the reviews in this site! 🙂

  14. Rehoca says:

    I am hiking part of the Appalachian Trail soon and both excited and scared about it. Extra energy would help me keep up with my experienced partner (I am not!).
    Thanks for a great site of information for a beginner…..and I did buy REI from your link.

  15. Deborah says:

    These are convenient to carry and eat and I would love to win some for my hiking adventures!

    Have a great weekend!
