Food/aid stations: Due to our unique multi-lap course setup, we have one giant “aid station,” with more food and drink than you could ever need! Ask anyone who’s run at least one of our races; we’ve got everything from fruit to jelly beans to sandwiches, water to Gatorade to hot coffee, and everything in between. Way more than just granola bars and bananas! 

Runners may drop to and receive credit for any of our shorter distances.
