It was hot; 87 degrees hot. Aid stations are roughly 6-7 miles apart. At one aid station I was told, “Wait until you get to the next aid station, they have smoothies.” When I got to the next aid station they told me they did not have the smoothies ready.

Once I got to the ~35 mile mark and it was 87 degrees out (you will be running in the direct sun for most of this race) I went to grab water and they told me to only grab one small cup b/c they only had 6 small cups of water left! They said they had called in 1.5 hours previously that they needed water but it had not arrived. WTF. A half mile away, there is a general store — GO BUY SOME WATER OR FILL UP YOUR WATER JUGS WITH A GARDEN HOSE. Seriously WTF. The race is also longer than 100 miles and yet this is absurd given that they can just shorten the end points since it is an out and back. Also, they did not put water jugs half way between the aid stations even though it was so hot and even though the trail has vehicle access.

There is no food the night before and some of the aid stations, not one volunteer said one word to me as I was there. I was really disappointed in this race.

There were many other things that indicated that the Race Director did not manage this race well which is surprising given that they had put this race on several times in the past. But the points I made above should let you know how they approached other aspects of the race.
