Abstract: In order to maximise training adaptation prior to endurance events, optimal food habits, in particular carbohydrates and protein intakes, are recommended. Despite the increasing popularity of multisport endurance events (EME), little is known regarding the nutritional intakes of non-elite athletes training for such events. This brief presents the results of an observational study with the overall objective of evaluating the nutritional intakes of athletes who take part in different EME. The results of this study suggest that a majority of non-elite athletes taking part in an EME reach and even exceed the proteins recommendations for endurance sports. On the other side, only one third of these athletes report having carbohydrates intakes reaching the minimum recommended intakes for endurance sports. These results rise questions about what types of interventions would better improve the nutritional intakes and the specificity of the actual nutritional recommendations.
