Facilities: Due to fire damage restoration, there are unfortunately no showers, toilets or baggage bag storage available.
Water stations: Often there will be a water station during the run. We recommend you bring your own bottle / hydration belt which you can refill at the water station in order to reduce the use of drinking cups.
