For those needing medical services:
There will be ambulances and medical personnel at the start line, finish line and along the course. If you need medical attention, find the nearest aid station, bearing in mind you may have just passed it. If you are not able to make it to an aid station by yourself, notify a volunteer, spectator or another runner to notify the nearest aid station of your location and condition. Aid stations will have the ability to contact the race's medical staff (roving on bicycles or in sag vehicles) to provide you with help.
