This is how long a typical water station during the 2009 Los Angeles Marathon. This was supposed to accommodate 12,000 runners for the Marathon distance. If there are 5,000-6,000 registered runners for the Marathon and other side-event races, then, at least, one half of this water station would be a typical water station for our Road Races in the country.
The following pictures were linked by Ultrarunner Rick Gaston as part of the many Water Stations for the annual NIKE Women’s Marathon held in San Francisco where he is the Captain (In-Charge) in these Water Stations on the Mile-17 & 25. Thanks Rick for the pictures!
