Aid Stations

We love to provide some of the best aid stations around! We will have the general grab and go munchies that runners love along with Hoist hydration.

After the race we will have a hot dog Cookout. Cookout Food will be for runners/participants first. Please allow all runners to enjoy the Cookout before family and friends ask for food if we have any left toward the end.


We know everyone loves them and we do also however along with our insurance not allowing any dogs in races the city does not allow dogs at the park. There is a dog park close to where we are running however we can not have them on site at our event. It simply puts our permit in jeopardy. Thank you so much for your understanding.
