The 2018 Hawk is a fully-staffed race with 3 aid stations manned by experienced UltraRunners, and a well-marked course through tough technical trails. We will have Ham radio operators at each aid station, so crew and family members can easily check on the whereabouts of their runner.
Aid stations will offer Tailwind Nutrition, Water, Coke, Mountain Dew and Ginger-ale. We serve Honey Stinger gels, chews and waffles as our additional electrolyte. Typical aid station food includes but is not limited to: Oranges, bananas, watermelon, pringles, pretzels, oreo cookies, nutter butters, M&M's, Peanut M&M's, ginger chews, boiled potatoes, peanut butter wraps, nutella wraps, and turkey wraps.
