The third thing you need to know about the Yellowstone Half is that this is a CUP FREE RACE.Head over to our Facebook page and leave a comment on this post to be entered for today’s free race entry giveaway!
You can read all about what that means in a previous blog post. It is exactly what it sounds like. No cups! The response to our cup free racing at our other races has been overwhelmingly positive. Most people LOVE the hydrapouches we provide for our runners. Some people aren’t wild about them, but they bring their own hydration system (water bottle, racing belt, camelpak, etc.) and find the cup free experience just as enjoyable.
We want to keep our course clean and safe. We do that by eliminating cups. Our aid stations will still be plentiful and there will not be line build up. Cup free racing really is the way to go.
