Water will be available at all aid stations. Gatorade’s Endurance Formula (Lemon-Lime) is the official on-course sports drink of the Tuscon Marathon, Half Marathon, and Marathon Relay and will be available at the above aid station locations. As part of a five-electrolyte blend of sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium and chloride, Gatorade Endurance Formula is a specialized sports drink designed to help sustain hydration during prolonged training and racing when fluid and electrolyte losses can be significant. It contains nearly twice the sodium (200mg) and more than three times the potassium (90mg) of Gatorade Thirst Quencher to help sustain hydration, maintain proper fluid balance and replace the critical electrolytes lost in sweat during these occasions.
