Marathon Planning and Porta Potty Rental Units
To plan a marathon causes for months of preparation. You must be considerate of spectators, reporters, and of course, the Marathon runners. In planning some of the highlights of the event, make sure you include enough porta potty rental stations for them to access.
TIP: Be Courteous of Retail Owners
Many retail owners are proud to stand along the sidelines and cheer runners on. However, on the race to the finish line, marathon runners aren’t so courteous. Their goal is to continue running, not necessarily stopping to relieve themselves.
However, when nature calls, they must answer. They aren’t always running along the course of the woods nor have the ability to move over to the side. So unfortunately, those seasoned runners are capable of blocking out others from around them and relieving themselves or never stopping… which is definitely not ideal or comfortable for any marathon runner. Yikes!
Retail owners are definitely not happy about that, as their customers see this as well. So be courteous to retail owners and place plenty of porta potty rental units along the way.
Runners are Going to Plan Ahead
You can guarantee that the year round training that marathon runners have, they will know where each porta potty is located. Most marathons include a Course Information page that runners and their trainers can check online, well before the race. It outlines the course map, start and finish lines, where runners can replace their fluids, and where porta potty rental units are stationed.
Don’t discourage them from running in your marathon! Put comfortable, portable toilets around the beginning and end of the finish lines. You can ensure they are comforting enough to relieve themselves before the race in the DJ5000L Luxury Restroom Trailer, which has hot and cold running water and private stalls.
No One Wants to Wait in Line, nor Have the Time
You can imagine how a marathon runner must feel having to wait in line. It’s not that they are conceited or think they are so much better than most. Many are running for charity, not their good name. So make sure they want to participate in the next event. Lining rest areas with the DJ3000 Restroom Trailer’s has a women’s suite of 4 flushing toilets and men have access to 2 toilets and 3 urinals. That’s enough to keep the line going.
