ALL RUNNERS MUST CARRY WATER DURING THE HOTTER 'N HELL TRAIL RACE.
To be allowed to start, runners must have some type of hydration during the race. It can be hand held water bottles, a hydration belt or pack. This is a very demanding race and no matter how well conditioned you are, you will become dehydrated if you don't carry water. It is impossible to drink enough water at the aid stations. You will also need to take electrolytes during the race. Tailwind is a great option for hydration and staying fueled. It has it all. Start the race with a bottle of tailwind and refill with Tailwind at every aid station stop. Last years finish times in the 9 Mile ranged from 1.5 to over 3 hours. Double that for the 12 miles.
