I was hoping you could advise me on the best plan for first aid. We are hosting a 5K run/walk on May 21 in Floral Park, New York. This race has grown over the years, and if registration continues at this pace, we are projected to hit 2,000 runners.
I just ran my second marathon and noticed many runners had friends on bikes to help them out with words of encouragement, etc. along the course. To what extent can spectators aid runners during a race?
