- Breakfast: All racers are invited to stay and enjoy a complimentary pancake breakfast. All-you-can-eat pancakes are only $5 for attendees not running.
- Cup-Free Race: That’s right…we are not providing cups at water stations! The Summit will be hosting a Cup-Free Race! Participants will have the option to receive a Hydra Pouch personal hydration device or bring their own water bottle. Cup-Free Racing means: safer aid stations with fewer cups to slip on; faster, more efficient, and less crowded aid stations; less litter, trash, and waste. Learn more about Cup-Free Racing.
