AID STATIONS: For each of the run in the series you will have three aid stations along your routes that you will hit on your “out and back” courses. These aid stations will be zero contact aid stations. Runners are not allowed under any circumstances to touch anything. You must enter the minimal aid station, open your own pack or bottle, and the volunteer will pour water or electrolyte for you while the volunteer wears gloves. There will be no food or cups. Aid station will have: Water, Fluid electrolyte, GU gels and GU waffles, tons of pre-packed snacks, and ice. Ice will only be touched by the volunteer using a scooper. These aid stations will be incredibly minimal and follow all safety and sanitary rules.
The route is an out and back, and ran 100% on trails. The 50k will have three aid stations total. One of which will be hit twice. The 30k will have one aid station at mile 9. Only 50k runners may have drop bags. You will see your drop bag at mile 15 (aid station and turn around spot). .
PLEASE READ: These runs are low key grassroots events that are meant to be fun. Running in the fresh air on trails is the best medicine for all of life’s stressors, and we want to give you that gift.
