There will be one aid station along the route for the 5k near the half-way point as well as at the finish line.
What is provided at the aid stations?
Aid stations for the Runners High races are not your average aid stations. These stations are stocked with everything you need to be successful on your run. Aid stations will have first aid materials such as sun screen, blister doughnuts, and anti-chafe creme (if you know, you know). Each station has water, sports drinks, and granola bars. Aid Station 4 will have Clif Bloks Energy Chews. Aid Stations 6, 8, and 10 will have Uncrustable PB & Js. Aid Stations 6, 8, 10, and 12 will have Clif Shot Energy Gels.
Will the highway be closed for the race?
Highway 150 will not be closed for the race. Safety is and will be our number one priority during the race. You must run on the left side of the road against traffic the entire race. There will not be road closures so please be alert and aware and stay as far as you can from the white line. Wyoming Highway Patrol and the Uinta County Sheriff's Office will be helping to patrol the area. Race volunteers will be monitoring the course for issues. Once the course enters city limits, you will run on the side walk. The City of Evanston has approved a parade route through town. Evanston Police Offices will be handling traffic control within city limits.
