Aid Stations

Because of the out and back / looped nature of the marathon, half marathon and 50K courses, you will encounter some aid stations multiple times. The distance between aid stations will be 2 to 3 miles. Aid stations will be stocked with water and Gatorade... and possibly other treats...
You will also pass by the parking lot near the start / finish line, so you may get your own food and drink from your car.
