You couldn’t be more thrilled to host your organization’s or city’s upcoming marathon. After all, this unifying event will be the perfect opportunity to promote improved health, fitness, stress reduction, and even a whole new outlook on life.

When nature calls, though, the only thing your participants will be thinking is, “Where’s the nearest loo”?

Fortunately, when you set up portable potty rentals, you’ll set up your marathon runners for success when going to the bathroom can’t wait.

Here’s everything you need to know about portable potty rentals ahead of your upcoming marathon.

Let’s jump in!

Improve the Runner’s Experience

When you’re planning a marathon, your main focus is to give your runners a top-level experience while also generating the profit you desire. An important factor in achieving this goal is providing adequate restrooms for your runners to access when they need them.

Ideally, you should set up portable potties at your starting line and then along your runners’ route. This is important because your route may not feature facilities or businesses that are willing to let your runners use their bathrooms.

The reality is, stopping to use the restroom will no doubt add some time to a runner’s sprint. However, having access to a restroom is critical for ensuring that they run comfortably from start to finish. 

Make Your Marathon Safer

In addition to making your runners more comfortable, providing access to porta potties can actually promote a safer running experience.

Here’s why.

If your runners are worried about not being able to use the restroom when they need to, they might skimp on the water or sports drinks. However, if they know that bathrooms will be available, they can feel free to drink liberally and thus avoid dehydration.

In other words, your runners can truly focus on taking care of themselves while they are pushing themselves to do their best.

How Many Portable Toilets Do You Need?

As a general rule of thumb, if you’re planning a marathon, you should set up at least one porta potty for every 50 participants. If you can set up a couple of more, though, this isn’t a bad idea.

Having enough porta potties will help to ensure that everybody can easily handle their business before, after, and during the marathon.
