Course support - important info!

We’ve been talking up new energy gels offered on race day, but have been forced to make a last-minute change we want you to be aware of.  Due to an unexpected inventory issue, Boom Nutrition is unable to supply the required amount of Carb Boom!  We have purchased GU energy gels for the course, giving runners the option to choose.  Each location listed below will have Carb Boom and GU, and support bicyclists will try to carry both products for on-demand need.

Carb Boom! and GU will be located at:
Mile 8.5, 13.5, & 20.5 (Marathon)
Mile 7 (Half)

Tasty treats and motivation wait for you at The Candy Stand on Mile 22 of the Marathon and Mile 10 of the Half.  Candy Stand Volunteers will be cheering and handing out dark chocolate, Jolly Ranchers®, "fun-sized" Snickers® bars and a host of mini-sized sugary delights for race participants to munch on as they head toward the finish line. Flat cola and orange soda will also be on tap.

Mile 2.5, 3.5, 5, 6.5, 8.5, 9.5, 10.5, 12.5, 13.5, 14.5, 16.5, 18, 19.5, 20.5, 22, 23.5, 24.5, and 25
Half Marathon:
Mile 2, 3, 4.5, 6, 7, 8.5, 10, 11.5 

Please don’t litter along the course.  Residents and communities welcome us each year, please respect their roads and homes and dispose of cups in receptacles provided.  Do not throw your energy gel packs on the road.  They cannot be picked up by street sweepers and we have to pick each one of those gooey packs up by hand.  Be kind and discard them in the containers provided.
