Hi Saturday runners,
Here's the latest water schedule: Nancy is our hydration honcho this Saturday. Nancy's planning to leave water at all 3 stops – the usual 2 plus at the end of the aqueduct.
I've received several more replies to my question about the location of the second water stop. It's still fairly evenly split between switching to the end of the aqueduct and leaving things as they are. I would still lean toward leaving the second stop where it's been, and encourage volunteers to leave additional water at the end of the aqueduct for the rest of the summer.
You can sign up by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by replying to this message. Recommended water quantities are listed below. Please don't retrieve water before 9:30.
Reminder: We've had some problems with theft at the second water stop. Don't leave a valuable cooler there. A cardboard box is good enough.
