All aid stations will be manned by incredibly helpful volunteers and fully stocked with a minimum of water, Tailwind (100cal/12oz ratio), soda, salty & sweet snacks, fresh fruit, hot and cold food and basic first aid. Trust us when we say, we are going to take GOOD care of runners but if you do have strict dietary requirements or specific medical conditions, we advise packing needed items in drop bags or carrying them with you.
Drop bag service is provided at ALL 4 aid stations. Drop bags must be labeled with bib # and name of aid station and dropped off at Thursday night packet pickup or at the designated area at the race start (Friday) no later than 7:15AM. We don’t want to set any drop bag size restrictions so please just use common sense and keep them reasonably sized and in sturdy materials.
Crews and pacers are ONLY allowed at the start/finish aid station at Louis Murphy Park. There are no exceptions to this rule and any crews that break this rule and support their runner on the course subject their runner to disqualification.
