Gatorade Sweat Patch Night

Tue June 14, 2022 Rochester Running Co

Event

Information

Join us for a Gatorade sweat patch night as we perform a sweat test together!

You must have an IPhone to participate in this event or have access to a IPad and be able to download the Gatorade Gx App.

We often work out or go for long runs and just guess how much fuel we need for our bodies.  We are here to help you know how you sweat and what to do next!

Here’s a quick overview:

Gather at the store at 6 PM for a brief presentation.
Runners will need to download, install and setup the Gx App on their phones (iPhones only at this point)
Apply the sweat patch
We will be going for a 30+ minute run (we will have 3, 4 and 5 mile options depending on an individuals desires)
Finish run back at the store. 
Runners use the phone to scan the patch, log any fluid intake
App delivers details on their sweat analysis.

We enjoy some refreshments and beverages post run back and the store, compare results, and discuss!

The first time using it does take 5-7mins to setup.  Ideally, runners would do that before they arrive.  During that process, the runner would link the Gx App with their Garmin or Strava account.  That way the details from their run are automatically added once the run is completed.  If they don’t, then the runner would need to manually enter the distance and time into the Gx App.

The App will tell us:

Fluid loss - The total amount of fluid you lose during a workout. Used to calculate hydration needs.
Sweat rate - The amount you sweat over the course of one hour. Helps calculate fluid loss.
Sodium loss- The amount of sodium you lose through your sweat. Used to calculate electrolyte needs.

You will get receive at the event: 1 patch to use for day of testing, a Gatorade nutrition sample pack, and post run beverages and snacks.

 

If you would like to purchase additional patches to use on your own you can do that in the connected store during registration or at the store on the day of the event!
