AID STATIONS

5 Aid Stations to Fuel your finish in the 2015 Wilderness 101
This is the deal with the Aid Stations
We aim to have them about 2 hours apart, they are there to help you travel light and fast and will be stocked with racing food including:
Hammer Gel
Energyl Bars and Drinks
Various Tasty Treats
Chain Lube
Presta Tubes
Tire Pumps
and
Water
Aid Station Drops: each racer is allowed 2 - 1 gallon zip lock bags to go to either of 2 aid stations - including your lights.
Everything must be in the bag- clothes, food, bike parts, light etc. We are not responsible for lost, stolen or missing drop bags.

This is what we are looking at with respect to time limits on the course:
Aid Station 4 - 6:00 PM
Aid Station 5- Need lights if leaving after 7:00 PM cut off 8:00 PM
Lights can be waiting at aid station 5
We are shooting to have racers finishing under the 15 hour mark.
We will have a specific list of what will be at each Aid Station when you check in on Friday
