Ham Run Recap

Ham Run Recap

We had a great time at the Ham Run last Sunday, May 2nd! It was a gorgeous day for the half marathon and 5 K run – no one could have asked for better weather.

Stone Harbor manned the water station at mile marker 8, where we got to witness the new “hydra pouch” in action.  Instead of disposable cups, runners were given a reusable silicone squishy cup that they could use at each water station. The system was so slick that runners could run by, squeeze open their cups, press the dispenser lever, fill up completely and all without losing more than a second of time.

Of course for us the best part of the run was cheering on the runners. Our team was lively and happy to greet the runners with a big “good job, keep it up, get your water here…” After all 100+ runners passed, by we were able to hang out with them at the end of the Gunflint trail. A tent was set up with live music, and lunch for all the participants.

A special thanks to volunteer Paul Ramey, who helped us out with his enthusiastic cheering.

Overall it was a great day, and we were honored to be part of it. We can’t wait to see you at some of the other events we’ll be supporting throughout the summer.
