Aid Station Details and Chart
See information below about what will be at aid stations.
Drop Bags: there will be a location on Saturday morning at the starting line to place your drop bags.
The Shawnee 50 is a cupless race! In an effort to cut down on the waste of hundreds of paper cups, lessen a burden on volunteers, and to stay current with trail running trends, we will not have cups at aid stations.
Aid stations will have a limited number of reusable cups that will be cleaned with disinfectant wipes after each use. You will be able to fill up with soda, water, electrolyte drink, or other liquids with your handheld bottle, bladder, and/or collapsible cups.
We recommend purchasing a collapsible cup at your local running speciality store; collapsible cups can easily be stashed in your pocket or pack while running, and saves a massive amount of waste from paper cups that are just used once.. Here are two great products that we recommend:

“Water Only” - Stations indicated as “water only” will not have anything except water.
“Medium” - Medium aid stations will look similar to most ultra marathon aid stations, with water, electrolyte drink, soda, salty snacks and sweet snacks.
