This study assessed tolerance to fluid ingestion with repeated sessions of drinking while running. Runners (n = 7; age 22 ± 2yr; V̇O 2max = 54.4 ± 7.1 ml/kg/min) performed six 90-min runs (65% V̇O2max; separated by 7-11 days). During run 1, subjects drank a glucose-electrolyte solution ad libitum for 1 min every 10 min. During runs 2-6, subjects drank a volume of the solution every 10 min equal to their sweat production over 10 min during run 1. Stomach comfort (1-4 scale) and gastrointestinal symptoms were also assessed every 10 min. Gastric emptying rate was determined in runs 2 and 6. Subjects consumed more (p
