Refreshment Stations for 56km
Twenty well-stocked refreshment stations along the 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 Vaseline and the first station is at the 3km mark, where only Water and Coke will be available. The subsequent refreshment stations are approximately 3km 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. No municipal water will be used. Water for race day has been sourced from the Newlands Spring with an allocated and approved dispensation from relevant stakeholders, including the Department of Water and Sanitation. Please read more here.
- 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, Ola Paddle Pops and other “morale boosters” will be available at some stations.
- 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.
