Refreshment Stations for 56km

  • Ultra Marathon
  • Medical

Twenty five well-stocked refreshment stations along the 56km route will ensure that every runner’s needs are adequately catered for.

  • A special station will be located at the start providing water/Coke/Powerade and Loobit and the first station is at the 3km mark, where only Water and Coke will be available. The subsequent refreshment stations are approximately 2.5km apart.
  • Drinking water is manufactured under strict hygienic conditions at K3 Water. Each batch of water is tested and is then transported to a Cold Store Facility where the water is sent through a Blast Chiller Room, allowing the water to reach 0°C and then stored in a Holding Cold Room to maintain the temperature at 0°C . Over and above the lab test, the water gets taste tested every week.
  • Drinking water and Powerade will be provided throughout the race in 100ml plastic sachets (Booster Bags), while Coca-Cola will be served in 200ml Coke cups. In addition, potatoes, bananas, Bar-One chocolates and other “morale boosters” will be available at some stations. 
  • Loobit anti-chafing cream will be available at the start and at the 23km, 26km, 33km, 38km, 43.5km, 47.5km, and 51km marks.
  • Where possible, the stations will be manned from both sides of the road but the stations are well spread out to ensure that everyone is catered for.
