Goldeagle - I only remember water at the drink stations. I had some glucose sweets in my pocket, that were provided before the race.

Didn't try my own drinks etc.

Course was flat for the first 10k. A few slopes (not really hills) between 10k and halfway point (13 miles), and flat thereafter.

I can only remember water stations in the main - although at about 23m, there was a water station that was also handing out half bananas

Cheers, Guys. Thanks for the information.

Now you say that payless I do remember bananas etc being handed out at about 7 or 8 miles too.

I'm doing Palma this year. can anyone remember if the water is bottled or (hope not) tap??

Bottled water definiely. And last year there were cups of isotonic drinks at each water station which was great. Not saying that's going to be the case this year.

Thanks, Goldeagle. I can just put my coconut water in my bottle now......
