Thank you for helping to make our Saturday runs so successful! Water stops are an essential part of our weekly group runs and your support is much appreciated. Please follow the guidelines below to ensure there are enough supplies at each station.
Minimum recommended supplies to setup a water stop
- AORTA Water Stop sign (see below for water stop signs)
- Cooler & ice (see below for coolers)
- 1 Gallon of Water
- 5-6 (32 oz) or 2-3 (64 oz) sports drinks (i.e. - Gatorade / Powerade)
* Please ensure a mix of sugar AND no-sugar alternatives
- 30 small cups
- Trash bag for used bottles and cups
** Remember to clean up your water stop and return signs **
Where to get Water Stop signs and Coolers
Water stop signs and coolers are available at: 1536 Professional Parkway, Auburn, AL. Coolers and signs can be picked up Mon-Thur from 8AM-4PM and on Fridays from 8AM-12 noon. Items are in the room next to the back door. If you are unable to pick up supplies on these dates/times, please e-mail me at [email protected] to make alternative arrangements.
Providing maps at the beginning of each run will help those who are unfamiliar with the local area and/or given route. Download and print 5 copies of each map (pdf files available on the right side of the AORTA website) and place on the table in front of TCBY (next to the Kroger at the intersection of Glenn and Dean) by 6AM. Keep them in place with some small weights (rocks work well). Some runners start their run late and may not be there right at 6AM, so wait until the end of the run before discarding them.
