    Hi Lori, we are running our first full marathon this year. I have a question that I remember seeing but can't find again. Are there food vendors available before the race? Is there any type of food/gels available during the race?

    Hi Joni!

    Yes.  There will be food vendors before the race.  I usually bring a bagel with me, and buy a coffee and maybe a pastry at the starting area.  I like to get there really early so I can eat and let my food digest without worrying about being rushed.  There will be breakfast foods and hot and cold drinks being sold. 

    This is the food and water information for the course:
    A total of 9 Dasani water and PowerAde stops will be located along the half marathon and 21 along the Marathon course. Stops are placed approximately every 1.5 miles along the course and both Dasani water and PowerAde will be available at all stops. The half marathon has 1 food stop with Clif Shots near Mile 9. The Marathon will have 4 food stops at mile 14 with Chiquita bananas, mile 15.5 with Clif Shots, mile 17 with sponges, mile 19 with Chiquita bananas, and mile 22.5 with candy.

    I hope this helps!  Please let me know if you  have any other questions!
