Dehydrated? Light-headed? Nagging Injuries flaring up?
We will have two medical stations, one at the start/finish area, and another around Mile 3.5
Note – you will pass both of these locations 6 times.
There will be a water stop approximately every mile long the course. Two of these water stops will also be stocked with Gu Gels.
Note: if you’ll prefer a different drink during the race, make sure to take advantage of the personal drink stations, where you can leave any concoction you’d like.
A free bag check will be provided to all participants at the registration area. Once you return, just show us your bib number, to reclaim your checked bag!
IMPORTANT – Please allow enough time to check your bag!
Personal Drink Stations
Okay – so we think this is pretty cool … We are giving all runners the option to stock their very own personal bottle station! We completely understand that all runners have their own beverage preferences, so we are here to accommodate:
- Pre-mix your personal race concoction(s)
- Pre-race you’ll be allowed access to your table, to set up however you’d like (within you allotted space, of course)
- There is one location, so you’ll be passing it on every loop (6)
- Please, please, please MARK YOUR BOTTLES CLEARLY WITH YOUR BIB NUMBER!
During registration, each runner will be given the option to select from a specific list of pacing groups (based on their goal finish time). Each pacing group will start together as a wave, with the same goal time in mind.
Parking will be available near the start/finish area, on Bare Cove Park Drive (near the Model Railway Club). Parking will be on a first-come, first-served basis! We are anticipating 400 runners, so if you have family/friends coming to cheer you on, please have them carpool!
