There are 6 checkpoints approximately every 16 miles or so. They have fruit and water, but many people are "sagged" by personal support teams. (family/friends). These support teams travel checkpoint to checkpoint handing off items needed by the skaters. I eat sport gels religously during the event as well as higher calorie, sport drinks going through one 20 oz bottle between every checkpoint. (accelerade is the brand drink and GU is the gel).
