Water Stations

Our Water Stations also are always a HUGE HIT! They are lively, fun places to refuel. We typically have a variety of electrolyte, drink and food options and choices to support your race experience and personal preference. Some water/aid stations will have Gatorade and/or flat Coke, and many stations will have a selection of fruit and cookies. All stations will have water.

Vote for your favorite non-profit water station after the race. The winning volunteer team will not only get crowned as the Water Station of the Year, but we also give them 500 bucks for their organization! More information about the Water Station Contest on our Volunteer Info page.
