Drink Stations

Always have lots of question re drink stations, so here it is from the horse’s mouth.
Drink Stations are manned by fabulous very friendly volunteers, which is part of the great attraction of the Carcoar Cup, so spread the love!! All have water and Powerade, along with jelly beans and snakes.
Marathon and Ultra
DS1 – 3kms at Cooming Creek
DS2- 3kms at top of the hill
DS2- 4 kms – manned by the wonderful Molloy family every year
DS4 – 4kms – manned by Merv and Marg – you will know how wonderful they are when you see them (Ultras visit here twice)
DS5 – 4km – more of of our great Neville volunteer contingent (Ultras twice)
DS6- 4kms – At Neville opposite the school both sides of the road because you will pas them run around the town, and the pass them again, so DS6 1.5kms (Ultras four times)
DS7 – 3kms – more great Nevillites.
DS8 – 3kms last of the Neville contingent with Rob in charge I think!!
DS9 – 4.5kms – the best drink station as it is right at the top of that hill!
