Competitors in the longer events are encouraged to carry their own supplies as the weather can be quite warm at this time of year, especially on the return leg. Full aid stations will be positioned at 3km intervals and will carry water, sports drink, Coca Cola, chopped banana and glucose type lollies.
Don’t forget you can use one of the many showers located along the beachfront to cool down or refill your bottles..
For cuts and abrasions the aid stations will carry First Aid kits. A qualified paramedic will be on hand to attend to anything more serious.
