Food/aid stations: Due to our unique multi-loop course setup, we have one giant “aid station,” with more food and drink than you could ever need! Ask anyone who’s run at least one of our races; we’ve got everything from fruit to jelly beans to sandwiches, water to Gatorade to hot coffee, and everything in between. Way more than just Goo and bananas–we even have our very own chef and mobile kitchen. Check out Norm’s Kitchen to see what’s cookin’!
