Students from the Fair Oaks Junior Rotary Club, known as Interact, were among the many volunteers working the water aid station at Mile 10 in Old Fair Oaks on Sunday morning, December 3 for the California International Marathon. 
More than 9,600 athletes participated. That's a lot of water to serve the runners as they speed by. Volunteers started at 5:30 am to set up the thousands of water cups needed and worked until 11 am to clean up. 
Cordova High School's cross country team lead by Josh Gruver sponsors the Mile 10 aid station with help from both Bella Vista and Cordova Interact clubs. 
Sacramento hosts this event each year. It is a qualifying event for the Boston Marathon. Special this year was that it also served as an Olympic Event Qualifier as well.
