What kind of food is at the aid stations?
This is covered in more detail in the runner’s info package, which appears elsewhere on this homepage. Generally, the standard hundred stuff, however, remember that four of the aid stations are supplied by muletrain (Pole Creek) or backpack (Engineer, Virginus, Putnam), which limits what can be carried in. There will be a new policy concerning aid stations at Hardrock this year, due to its increase in size: the central aid area (where the food is) will be roped off and accessible only to the runner and a single crew member or pacer. The rest of the crew is welcome to administer aid within the aid station boundaries, but outside the exclusion area. This is no big deal, and is routine in many other hundreds. It cuts down on the chaos.
