Aid Stations

All aid stations will be fully stocked with plenty of water and nuun hydration to keep you running strong on race day.

The swim exit will feature an aid station so you can refill on those all-important fluids before the race and upon entering T1 after the swim.

Don’t forget that there are no aid stations on the bike course, so get ready to gear up and have water bottles filled if you want them throughout your ride.

When it comes to the run course, you’ve got three chances to make a pit stop and hydrate up! Thanks to the looped course, you’ll pass each aid station at Mile 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 – perfect for getting what you need just when you need it.
