We took our time in selecting where each of the aid stations would be located along the course. We took into account what type of aid station could be placed where, and what effects it would have on the community. Each carefully located aid station takes into consideration:

Spectators & crew access, parking availability as well as noise levels in relation to estimated time of day

Desired involvement of community or private landowners

Whether aid Station is a full supply or quick water/fuel stop. Due to the locations of some of our aid stations, it is just not possible to have drop bags, and crew access.

What can be found at Aid Stations?

Supplies: Tent, chairs, tables, coolers, basic first aid, cooking devices, music

Drink: Water, soda, tailwind, S-Caps

Food: Energy bars, gels, sandwiches, peanut butter, fruit, M&Ms, cookies, potatoes, chips & snacks, grilled cheese, quesadillas, chicken noodle soup

Drop Bags

Drop bags can be dropped off during packet pick on Friday evening. No drop bags will be accepted the morning of the race. We will also be accepting drop bags during a early packet picket at Medved Running & Walking.

After the race is over, we will be collecting and returning any remaining drop bags to the Hammondsport Fire Hall. They can be collected later that evening or the following morning until 12pm. Any gear not picked up by noon on Sunday will be donated to a local charity.

Trail Maps &

We have provided trail maps, and a course elevation profile with aid station locations. While you won’t get lost, we are pretty sure you will get worn out. With 10,000 feet of elevation gained/loss in the day, and no mountain to speak of, you’ll be climbing, and descending all day long.

Since we are following the FLT, we encourage you to stay tuned to current trail conditions, seasonal reroutes, and changes to the trail through the FLTC website.

Aid Stations
& Drop Bags

There will be 11 fully stocked aid stations and a handful of quick-fueling stations along the course. We have worked carefully with the community, landowners, authorities, and the FLTC to locate these aid stations in the best possible locations.

We have provided you with a breakdown chart of all of the aid stations, and their locations and proximity to the starting line. Crew access and drop bags are not allowed at all of the aid stations. Also, don’t forget only one car per crew will be allowed!
