EVENT ALERT SYSTEM (EAS)
Medical personnel will be stationed at each aid station along the race course to monitor and treat any athlete who is injured or in distress. Aid stations contain first aid personnel, portable toilet facilities, water & Honey Stinger Product. Local EMS will also be providing medical support throughout the race course on both days.
Each medical tent will be staffed with teams of medical professionals, and equipped with emergency equipment and supplies. The Main Medical Tent is located just past the Finish Line.
FAMILY RELATIONS TENT
This tent is an area for family/friends to inquire about the health status of a runner. Due to medical confidentiality, medical personnel cannot provide medical information on a runner unless the runner provides oral permission for the designated person(s) or if the runner has provided race organizers with emergency contact person(s).
