Thomas De Bock

Hello, I am Thomas De Bock, 31 years old and working as a doctoral student at the research group of sports management at UGent. In between working hours I run a lot of kilometres, mostly in preparation of a marathon. In the past, I have already tasted European and World Championships but I still have two major goals in my athletics career, namely to run under 2h10 at the marathon and qualifying for the Olympic marathon in 2024.

My discipline

Athletics - marathon -> Runners' lab Athletics Team


Number of hours’ training per week

20 hours

My favourite Etixx products

I always use the Isotonic during my endurance training so that I can finish my workouts with enough energy and keep my fluid levels up. I also use the Sport Hydro Tab every day for longer, more intensive training sessions.


Why are you satisfied that Etixx has become the new sports nutrition partner of the Runners' lab Athletics Team?

Etixx has a very wide and scientific range of sports nutrition products. This means that every athlete in our team can find all the products in the Etixx range, tailored to his/her needs and in function of his/her number. This allows training sessions and races to be completed even more efficiently.


My personal records

  • Marathon: 2h10'17
  • Half marathon: 1h03'25
  • Ten miles antwerp: 48min15 sec
