Agreed, it doesn't make any sense to have an AS at 7.5 and at 8.25. Since it is so early in the race it shouldn't be an issue having to go a little further between stations. I wouldn't really want to go 8 miles between aid stations 20 miles into that race though.
"This is Watchung, not Siberia. Nothing bad will happen"...except bear attacks apparently!
I want to have a sweeper following the last runner on the MoMa course.
Does anyone want to get in any mileage that is not a registered runner? There are sections from 3+ miles to the whole 31 miles.
You would be responsible for maintaining a 15.4 minute pace and making sure no one gets behind you. Also you would need to be somewhat familiar with the trail to assist any injured runner the easiest and fastest way to help.
I could run any section with any volunteers any time to make them more comfortable with the trails before hand.
