There are 6 water/Gatorade stops (about every 3 miles). A Drop Box for clothing will be located at the corner of Crestwood and Memorial behind the water fountain and will be picked up about 45-60 minutes after the run starts. Dropped Clothes will be placed outside on the back patio.
A full breakfast with adult drinks awaits the finishers. It will be served in the Kitchen Area. We have an indoor and outdoor shower. The Hot tub will be heated and bubbling for those that need some relief.
