There will be five portapotties in the dirt parking lot that I highly recommend you visit; you’ll be happy to have taken care of business right after you park (with less waiting in line). There will be eight portables near the race start. Do not use the parking lot, bushes or beach as your toilet (ewww!); our permits depend on your responsible choices.
There will also be portable toilets and/or public toilets at each of the aid stations, including Cardiac at 2.8 miles into the race. As a condition of our permit, it is imperative that you practice responsible environmental behavior – it’s fine to pee alongside the trail, but please take care of any other business in the toilets provided. If you must suddenly squat elsewhere (hey, it happens), dig a cathole and cover your waste and the tp with several inches of dirt according to Leave No Trace recommendations.
The rental portables required by our permit cost the race several thousand dollars; make it worth it by using them!
