There seemed to be more jostling in the w's this year. Don't really know why.
Personally the aid station food is fine since I didn't use any but the aid stations themselves seemed a bit inconsistent. It helps to have them organized similarly so runners know where to get refills vs cups and aren't bumping into each other. Make that organization obvious to runners and everyone including volunteers will be more successful.
Finally, have the ascent van drivers slow down!!
