Lakefront Hydration Stations

Keeping You Hydrated

Find A Hydration Station

The Fleet Feet Sports & RAM Racing Lakefront Hydration Stations are currently closed for the off-season.

On the weekends stop by our Lakefront Hydration Stations, where you can refuel with some water and nuun hydration. This year we plan to hand out about 20,000 gallons of Absopure Water, 90,000 nuun hydration electrolyte tablets, and put 2,400 man-hours into this effort in the coming months to hydrate runners, cyclists, walkers, get the idea. These hydration stations are open to everyone, using the Lakefront Path when we are out there. It's our duty.

Each station will have:

  • Water
  • Nuun
  • Knowledgeable staff and friendly volunteers


The 2018 season will begin June 2018 and will continue each Saturday and Sunday until October 22nd.


  • Saturdays: The 3 hydration stations will be open from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. from now until August when an additional 30 minutes is tacked on to accommodate people doing their longest runs in preparation for fall marathons.
  • Sundays: Only the North Avenue Beach location will be open from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.

This is subject to change depending on weather, training program distances, and other variable factors. When we deviate from the traditional plan we post updates to our Facebook Page.


  • Diversey Harbor, on the south side behind Bacino's Italian Grill.
