If you're doing the Marine Corps Marathon this month, you won't be able to carry hydration backpacks.
The Quantico event is prohibiting use of the CamelBak-type packs. You can still use a fuel belt or carry a water bottle and they'll be plenty of water buffalos along the way. The change is part of heightened security following the April 15 bombings at the Boston Marathon.
