Tip #4: Know Where to “Go” … Literally (Porta-Potty Locations)

As we put the final preparations in place for this year’s race, we’ll be sharing “26 Tips for 26.2 Miles” to make sure you’re ready to go on race day. Click here to read them all, or follow along on FacebookTwitterPinterest and Instagram.

Tip 4 - BathroomsWhen you’re planning a marathon, “Where are the bathrooms?” is not an uncommon question. We get it: When you’re in the midst of 26.2 or 13.1 miles, this is a critical nugget of information.

This year, we’re setting a new record with 450 bathrooms along the course. That’s why today’s tip is: Know where to “go” … literally. 

There will be more than 250 restrooms at the Start Line this year – including more in and near the corrals. Look for volunteers wearing “Gotta Pee, Ask Me” t-shirts to help direct you to them.

If you need to make a quick pit stop in between miles, porta-potties are located at each of the 21 fluid stations along the course (Here and here are maps of their exact location for both the full and half).

Finally, there are also bathrooms stocked with supplies at the Second “Start Line” at Mile 13.
