Each Aid Station will be supported by several volunteers eager to assist you in making the most of your experience.

All aid stations (except the Redwood Golf Water Strop) will be well-stocked with all the treats runners love to help them get through the day, including fresh fruit, chips, gels, potatoes and salt, candy, cookies, soda, water, sports drink and other assorted goodies. There will be warm food — soup and quesadillas at Bort Meadow.

The aid stations will also have ice, sponges, and water buckets to help runners cool down. A pop-up tent for shade, and some chairs will be available should you really need a moment to relax before continuing on.

Runners have 2 passes at drop bags at Skyline Gate at miles 28, and 33.4. Pacers are allowed to enter at Skyline Gate at mile 33.4 and Big Bear at mile 37 only. No exceptions. Pacers must be registered and wear pacer bibs.

All Aid Stations that feature driving directions permit crew. Because of parking limitations, crew at Big Bear should greet their runner at MacDonald Gate which has a bigger parking lot (and a porta potty!)

The elevation is 8,200 ft.

Crew is ok unless otherwise noted.
