Cupless Aid Station Information

That's right! We have gone cupless!

​​

What does that mean?

  • Water dispensers will be located at the start/finish line and at every aid station.

  • Runners can use these to fill bladders, bottles​, and reusable cups

  • Gloved volunteers will pour sodas/misc drinks into runners' reusable cups.

  • To further reduce waste at aid stations, runners may bring a small reusable bag or bowl for food.

  • Reusable bowls are optional but a great way to reduce waste.
