Aid Station Items
- Drinks include water, an electrolyte drink, and various sodas.
- Food items include PB & J sandwiches, fruit, cookies, potato chips, and many other sweet / salty options.
- We do not supply electrolyte supplement capsules, such as Endurolytes or S-Caps.
- We highly recommend you carry water during the race, e.g. bottle or other hydration system.
- Note available drop bag locations on the Aid Stations chart.
- Please keep your drop bags reasonable in size.
- Drop bags must be labeled with your name, race number and the desired drop / aid station location.
- Having these labeled prior to arrival at the start is helpful – duct tape and Sharpie marker works well.
- Unmarked drop bags will not be delivered to aid station locations.
- Place your marked bags by the appropriate sign at the race start and we will deliver them to that aid station.
- We will return your drop bags to the finish.
- Follow the hot orange ribbons — if you don’t see one in 300-400 yards you are off course!!
- Turns are marked with a series of ribbons (about 4) a few feet apart on the side to which you’ll be turning.
- Use care while on the bike path and roads. Yield to traffic when crossing roads!!
- Watch footing on the bridges, they can be slippery and some may have boards missing.
- Watch for washouts (both runners and drivers).
- There are “horse holes” in the Magney section between aid stations #7 and #8.
