I also want to add to what Clem said.
I have run the marathon about 13 times in my younger years. All of these aid stations are in the second half of the race, after mile 13. This is the point where many runners will start to experience difficulty, and some may request transport back to Kapiolani Park. These stations have a crucial need to be filled.
Also, things might happen: Rick KH6OM and I did Aid Station 8 a few years back, and we had to call in an emergency—a runner went into cardiac arrest. Fortunately, as far I know, the runner survived.
As someone who has experienced the marathon from both sides of the Gatorade table, I can tell you this: your participation is CRUCIAL in ensuring the safety of over 20,000 runners and can save a life. Longtime ham radio participants have ensured MY safety.
I will be in one of the support vans, so I hope to see you on the course. Please participate, if you can.
Thanks and 73
