Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Making sure the runners are safe and hydrated for the Kentucky Derby Festival miniMarathon and Marathon is a huge job in itself.

For the past 10 years UPS has handled the logistics of dropping off supplies and refreshments to water stops and medical tents throughout the course.

Volunteers spent Friday night readying more than 16 tons of supplies including water, Powerade and snacks.

Early Saturday morning 27 UPS trucks and 70 volunteers will make the deliveries.
