Hydration Guidelines for Shayadri Classic 2nd Edition- January 2021

The Sahyadri Classic, The Ultra Climbing Cycle Race, India's premier and toughest climbing race is organised in the hillstation of Mahabaleshwar, and sees participation of elite as well as recreational athletes from all over India, as well as overseas.

Everyone knows the adage—you can go longer without food than water. Yes, this true! Water is one of our body’s 6 essential nutrients. It is very essential because our body does not have the capacity to store water in significant volumes. So, we need to consume adequate fluids daily to hydrate every cell in our body.

Goals of Performance Hydration:

  • Begin workouts in a well-hydrated state
  • Maintain hydration throughout practice
  • Maximize performance
  • Improve ability to recover quickly from training & competition
  • Minimize injury and muscle cramps

  • Consequences of Dehydration:

  • Performance declines with as little as 2 to 3 percent decrease in body weight from water (sweat) loss
  • Increased core temperature and heart rate
  • Decreased blood pressure
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • General feeling of fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Muscle cramps

    120 ml of fluid every 15 to 20 minutes (2 to 3 large gulps)
