Aid stations

There will be five well-stocked aid stations on the 50k course and three on the 22 Mile.

The aid stations will have at least water, electrolyte drink, and some carbohydrate-rich foods, such as energy gels, cookies, pieces of energy bar, bagel, fruity candy, fig bars, and/or bananas. There will be a few choices of these foods (both sweet and salty).
