Participants will cross aid stations roughly every 2-3 miles on the course. Aid Stations will be equipped with the following, 20oz bottled water, 12oz bottled sports drink, GU gels, and gummy bear chews. All products will be bottled and/or pre-packaged due to COVID-19.  We understand that most participants will only take a few sips of the bottle and throw the rest. Unfortunately, this is still our best way to provide nutrition during a pandemic. We have had some requests for smaller bottles, but we will only have the larger bottles due to them being significantly less expensive than the smaller bottles and some runners like to carry the larger bottle with them or pour it over their heads.  Please do not litter on course and dispose of your trash at the aid stations. Due to the increased use of bottles, we do have a team that sweeps the entire course for garbage post race, but please make their life easier and do not litter on the course.

We will have an athlete only gear check corral in which athletes will drop their bag at a pre-labeled area based on their bib number. There will be adequate spacing between bags and runners. Volunteers will not handle any gear bags. Volunteers will staff the entry and exit of the gear check area to make sure bags match the bib number of each runner entering and exiting. Bib numbers will be required to enter and exit the gear check corral. For safety purposes volunteers may ask to look inside of gear bags.


There will be a limited amount of booths near the finisher area. All finishers will receive a finisher medal, bottle of water, snacks, and food options. Finishers may take a photo at the photo backdrop after their finish. Race merchandise will also be available near the finish.


SMILE! We will have an automated camera set up at the finish line that is triggered by our timing box when you cross the finish line.  These photos will be available on the results page within 72 hours after the race. The more visible your bib number is, the easier it is for our automated software to tag your photo with your bib so you can find it easily post race. If your bib number was not visible, you can still search all the finish photos to find your photo.


Portable toilets and hand washing stations will be available in the start / finish area and at each aid station. Please follow physical distancing protocol when using the toilets.
