Be sure to check out mile marker 24 along the marathon race route. That's where you'll find one of the largest water stations, run by Fitger's.

On Wednesday, the original 1936 Fitger's beer delivery truck loaded up with supplies for the busy station. Fitger's has manned the mile 24 station for over 30 years now. And this year, they are expecting over 100 volunteers.

Tami Tanski Sherman, manager of Fitger's Mall, is the station captain for the water station, and she said, "I think I cry every single year when the very first runner comes through." 

The water station will have more than just water though. There will also be food, both indoor and outdoor bathrooms, and even a DJ. Be sure to check them out as you're cheering on your racers.
