Sam is one of the Ultra X Co-Founders. If he's not actually out running, chances are he's busy writing about it (or plotting Ultra X strategy!)
Renee is a leading Sports and Eating Disorder specialist dietitian with 20 years experience working in clinical and performance nutrition, with Olympic (London 2012), Paralympic (Rio 2016) and Commonwealth (Queensland 2018) teams. She is also the host of the TRAINBRAVE podcast, an Ultra X ambassador, and is a very keen runner herself with her sights set on Ultra X Sri Lanka in 2021.
We discuss the ever-changing science behind performance nutrition, how sports nutrition has changed, what to believe and the all important what not to believe.
