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.

Drop Bags

  • One drop bag location will be available out on the course, as noted on the Aid Stations chart.
  • Please keep your drop bag reasonable in size.
  • Your drop bag must be labeled with your name and race number.
    • 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 the aid station location.
  • Place your clearly marked bag by the appropriate sign at the race start and we will deliver it to the aid station.
  • We will return your drop bags to the finish.
  • Because this is a point-to-point race, an option for a finish line drop bag is also available.
    • Though we recommend using our bus service, allowing your car to be there waiting for you instead.

Trail Markings

  • 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).
