About GU

Dr. Vaughan created the first GU Energy Gel over 25 years ago to help his daughter with her ultra marathons like Western States and Hardrock 100. Back then you had the choice between a drink and mostly dry energy bars. The result is a viscous gel that is easy to transport and provides quick energy. The name was derived from the gooey consistency of the gels. The company is based in Berkeley, California and is now an integral part of the american endurance sports scene.
