Assuming you are coming via I-75, take exit 61,(old number) which is Highway 98 and as you turn east, reset your trip odometer.
0.2mi: first stoplight. There will be a McDonalds on your right.

6.4mi: fork in road, you go left staying on the pavement
6.7mi: notice the red concrete post about 4' high on your right & another 50' farther on your left? This is where the 7.5 & 22.5mi aid station will be. If you wanted to drop something special to eat/drink or your crew, this would be the place.
