Download the official JHU17 running route over here. Load the same in your smartphone or running watch for reference during the run.
The map below shows the official running route / aid stations / villages / distances for your reference.
The onward running route is a 37.5K linear trail. The return route branches at 12.3K along an 8K different return trail.
25K aid stations are spaced at 4K (initial 25K loop). Beyond that (75/50/100K) the aid stations are spaced at 6K.
Due to hot climate after 8am and running duration (30 to 60min between 4-6K) between aid stations runners should carry hydration with them
There are many villages (see below) at regular distances along the running route where – in case of need – runners can also request water
