Water Stations in the Cork Marathon...

Just a quick look at the water stations.....As you can see, there is no shortage.

Additional info.....
Water Stations.......There will be 13 water stations on the course, with additional water available at the start of the half marathon and at the finish line. This year, the water will be a mix of bottles (250ml) and cups. Mains drinking water will be available at 5 stations across the course, so if you carry your own bottle you can fill up at any of these stations too.
The main stations are as follows:

Sports Drinks.......The sports drink available will be Lucozade Sports..........The Lucozade will be in cups but you can ask for a bottle. One in Mahon (c mile 9), one at Musgrave Park (c 18) and one at about mile 22.

Just a note.........this year with 1000 extra Half-Marathon runners, the water stations from 17 miles onwards are going to be very busy. I just hope there are some Sports drinks for the slower runners.
