You may not change your corral Race Morning. When in doubt, go conservative and give yourself a chance to wow!
There is no gear check for this event. Please leave any items you do not wish to carry on your run in your car or with friends and family.
Please review the course map
here. There will be plenty of aid stations along the course, staffed with our awesome volunteers and providing you with cold water and various flavors of Heed electrolyte drink. Heed is awesome, but trust us--do not take it if you have never trained with it. This is true of all nutrition and hydration during exertion--don't try something for the first time during your race. Stick with what you know you like and what works for you.
There will also be nurses and medical staff situated at various aid stations along the course. Be smart, and if you're having an issue, please let one of them check you out.
Please review the
Course Map and
Aid Station listing on the website to familiarize yourself with the location of the aid stations, restroom facilities, medical assistance, and those aid stations offering Hammer Gels.
Please be courteous to our volunteers and thank them for coming out to assist us!
The weather looks promising, with the rains held at bay and temps in the high 50s...should be a perfect day for a great race! In the event it does rain, the race will continue.
