These stops are where the runners have access to their drop bags which include food, Gatorade, dry socks, Biofreeze, Tylenol… basically any items they think they would need throughout the day. They usually make it down to Key West within 24 hours, yup they go all night.
Most of the runners seemed in good physical condition and in a good state of mind 40 miles into the race when I saw them, but when I checked the results on Sunday, many ended up dropping out between miles 50 & 75. I saw several people that I recognized from last year. Some finished and some did not :( For whatever their reasons for signing up for this race, you have got to give them credit for at least giving it a shot!
