Aid Stations
We will have 6 aid stations along the route (technically 3 stations but you will hit each station twice.) The stations are approximately at miles 2, 4, 6, 7, 9, and 11.

At about miles 4, 6, 7, and 9 we will have Clif Shot Energy Gel. It is not recommended you try a new product in a race if you have yet to try it in training. If your stomach rebels it will not be a fun experience.
