At the start/finish area there will be a fully stocked aid station. We will have water and Gatorade as well as possibly chips, cookies, gummy bears, jelly beans, pretzels among other things.

This race will be chip timed by Huber Timing. This means you will not have to worry about lap counting. We will do that for you!
