Aid Station

At the World Triathlon Long Distance Championships there are one or more aid stations on the bike and run course, depending on the race. Athletes will slow down here when they want some resupplies, so that volunteers can hand these over. The food and drink is offered by the organization and is indicated according to a predetermined and communicated order.
