The Distance Runners
Performance Academy

Brand new from Ultra Appetites

‘New program reveals how to master performance nutrition so you can run further and faster, regardless of experience level’


From the desk of Erin Colebatch, Adelaide, South Australia


Dear athlete,


If you would like to run further, faster and learn how to use proven nutrition principles to get more out of your training and performance come race day…


Regardless of your experience level…


This will be the most exciting letter you read all year.


Here’s why:


But before we go any further, out of respect for your time I want to be totally honest with you.


Many of the athletes who work with me for performance nutrition come to me thinking they need to train harder, take more supplements or change their body composition in order to reach new heights in their racing career.


They expect gruelling meal plans and strict food rules to enforce on themselves.


It’s almost like they want to punish their body to perform at its best.


If that’s the type of approach you’re looking for then this is not the program for you however if you’re ready to learn the foundations of performance nutrition so you can nourish your body and fuel properly to achieve race results you’ve only dreamed about, then you’re in the right place.


You can Google for answers and trial and error your way through without investing in professional support but if that worked, I’m guessing you wouldn’t be reading this letter right now.


Investing in expert nutrition coaching for your running means you can cut straight to what works and reach your goals faster…


And you’re open to a new way of approaching fuelling nutrition, that doesn’t involve having to just ‘train harder’…


I’m giving you the entire solution to master performance nutrition not only on race day but in the weeks and months beforehand as well.


The exact solution I’ve used to transform my own running career going from complete beginner to finishing ultras in record time!


I’ve gone on to teach this solution to other athletes who have worked with me inside Distance Runners Performance Academy (DRPA) at Ultra Appetites in the past few years.


Check out some of the exciting events they have completed:

Which brings me to a story I want to share with you about a client I was working with earlier this year and how the DRPA system transformed her running in ways she had only ever dreamed of.


She went from getting to the end of several trail running ultra events, depleted of energy and not being able to fuel in later sessions due to nausea.


To successfully getting through training, crossing the finish line and getting through recovery afterwards as well.


“After getting to the end of several trail running ultra events and finishing with no energy and not being able to fuel in later sections due to nausea I approached Erin after listening to her speak at an event. Erin through several appointments gave me the confidence and information to increase my carb intake both pre training and during runs, accommodating my specification to do through natural sources rather than gels. We monitored through training sessions setting achievable goals and once reached we did several hydration and sodium sweat testing sessions to ensure we had the balance correct. Based on the findings Erin has produced race plans for me covering every detail including pre race meal plans and drop bag replenishments. Erin has made adjustments last minute to suit what was accessible in remote locations or what I felt like at the time, following up until race day to ensure the plan was right for me to give me every opportunity to succeed. Thank you Erin for all your dedication to get me through training, to the finish line and through recovery afterwards.”





Nicola Reese, Heysen 115km & Irrational South 200 miler

Inspiring, right?


See this client, like many of the athletes I work with was focusing her efforts on all the wrong areas of fuelling for performance. Believing it was all down to eating less, restricting carbs and winging it when it comes to sodium and hydration.


This approach never achieved the results she was wanting but she lacked the confidence and know-how to change it.


When we first started working together in the DRPA, we implemented my 3 layer system that I share in detail throughout the 6 month program.


Fast forward to today…


This awesome athlete now has detailed race plans to guide her fuelling, she understands how food affects her body and has the confidence to increase carb intake both pre training and during runs.


She is no longer struggling across the finish line, depleted of energy and feeling like a failure.


She’s got a proven plan, specifically based around her fuelling needs, to be able to confidently tackle any race she wants to conquer moving forward.


This is possible for you too.


You CAN cross that finish line feeling proud, confident and strong.


You CAN accomplish that distance or time you’ve been working so hard towards but until now, have always fallen short.


So having said all of that, are you interested in achieving your best running results to date?


Would you benefit from knowing my proven 3 layer system to running further and faster no matter your current experience level or what past results have been?


The exact roadmap that helped my clients get the results you just read about and that took me years of research, study and testing to put together….


Then I’d like to introduce you to the Distance Runners Performance Academy (DRPA).


The most thorough and effective nutrition performance program in Australia & New Zealand! And you’ll see why this isn’t an exaggeration in a moment…


Let me share with you exactly why it’s so powerful and trusted by athletes from all over the world.



Exactly What You’re Getting

This program is dramatically different to anything you have tried before in nutrition for performance. It’s not a training program or a supplement. It’s not over promising and under delivering with a one size fits all approach.


Rather it’s giving you a proven science-backed 3 layer system with custom nutrition and training plans to show you exactly how to get the best out of your body and achieve your goals.


It’s so powerful that you’ll be able to use the plans and principles you’ve learned to tackle any race you set your sights on and complete it with top results.


Fuelling for performance will become so simple, so straight forward that you’ll wonder how you ever attempted races without it.


Each module of the program gets straight to the point and shows you in detail how to master that stage of the DPRA system.


At every point you get access to downloadable resources and private nutrition coaching from leading sports dietitian, Erin Colebatch so you never feel alone, confused or off track.


Each module you will see below, deep dives into what I call the Performance Pyramid. My secret sauce strategy to getting you outstanding results on race day.

Module 3: Supplements & Problem Solving

  • Think you have to put up with uncomfortable gut issues, illness and fatigue? You don’t! Discover how to prevent all of these setbacks so you can focus on performing at your best.

  • Supplement plan that’s right for your needs. No more wasting time and money on supplements that don’t work for you. Get expert advice and insight into what you need to be taking, how much and when for best results

  • Never fall short of a performance goal again. Many of the causes for not achieving running goals are preventable. The DRPA will give you access to my top 12 performance strategies so you can tackle ANY problem that’s keeping you stuck with clarity and confidence.





You’re right! That‘s a lot of proven and ‘real world’ strategies that are working right now for athletes just like you who are looking for that next big result.
