Tip 11 - race fuel

There are 17 Fluid Stations along the course, supplying Gatorade Lemon Lime Endurance Formula® at the first set of tables and non-carbonated water at the second set of tables. We will also feature CLIF SHOTS (Mocha, Raspberry and Vanilla) flavors at approximately miles 8 and 17. Please note the Mocha CLIF SHOTS contain caffeine.

Each station will also have several porta-potties not too far from the tables if you need to make a pit stop while you’re hydrating.

Fluid & Gel Station maps for the full and ½ marathons can be viewed here. If you have any questions, please let us know in the comments below!
