***2020 Castle Peak 100k Aid Station Update (4/12/20)***
Runners will be supported with 10 aid stations along the course, about every 4 to 12 miles. Nonetheless, runners must have the capacity to carry at least 34 ounces (1 liter) of water and 400 calories of nutrition. (Click here for the list of required gear.)
***PLEASE BE ADVISED***
*Due to the remoteness of the Warren Lake Aid Station (Mile 33.25), there will be VERY LIMITED fuel options at that location. All water will be hand pump filtered from Warren Lake. Participants will need to fill up on supplies at the Johnson Canyon (Mile 24.5) and Summit Lake (Mile 27.7) Aid Stations.
Personal crew and drop bags will be allowed at the following aid stations. Each of these crew-accessible aid stations is family-friendly and has easy access via paved roads. We’d prefer that dogs are kept safe at home, but if you must bring them, please keep them on-leash. Dogs must not be left in vehicles unattended. Dogs are not allowed on-course at any time.
- A4 / Johnson Canyon / Mile 24.5
- A9 / Soda Springs Ski Area/ Mile 53.0
- F / Finish – Donner Ski Ranch / Mile 63.7
Each aid station will offer Skratch Labs, in addition to a selection of solid food products.
