I have recently started using energy/isotonic drinks when I run and am finding them very useful. However, the bottle is very heavy and annoying to carry even though I have a special belt for it. I am entered for a 10k at the end of June and half marathon in September and am wondering whether I can get away with using gels and water at the water stations rather than having to lug my bottle round. I am worried about dehydration in the heat if I rely on the gels(although the British weather being what it is it will probably be raining for both races!).
Does anybody have any advice or experiences with this?
